Obituary of Anthony Battista

March 11, 1963 – February 21, 2019

With shattered hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved brother Anthony on Thursday February 21, 2019. He is now in the loving arms of our late parents Bambina and Emilio Battista. Anthony is the very much loved brother of Josie Bota (Severin Udovic), the late Roger Battista (Frances), Rose Battista-Foster (Charles), Mario Battista (Diana), Nancy Battista, and Jane Sacco (Ronald). He was adored by his nieces and nephews, Robert and Rick Bota, Anna and Tammy Marchio, Lorrie, Lindsay and Jeff Battista, Alicia, Brandon and Michael Sacco, Tara, Marcus and Kevin Della Ventura. Special great uncle to James Curran, Krista and Jacob Bota, Ricky Bota jr, Tate and Gracie Flannery, Julian and Adriana Kramaric, Leonardo and Vittorio Sacco, and Vincent Sacco. Anthony was a kind, honest, and gentle soul who loved music and enjoyed following hockey. In his youth, he was an accomplished hockey player. Our family enjoyed many happy times together with summer barbeques, and our traditional Sunday family dinners. Anthony was always grateful for any act of kindness shown to him. Anthony had his own opinion and was not hesitant to let you know if he did not agree, but was always very respectful. He was loved and fiercely protected by his siblings. Rest in peace our sweet brother. LA FAMIGLIA BATTISTA. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 179 Clarence Street, Port Colborne. A private family funeral was held on Monday February 25, 2019. In honour of Tony, memorial donations may be made to St. John Bosco Church.
