Tony was born May 15, 1948 in Chicago, a son of Anthony and Mary (Rekosiewicz) Wiszowaty. He earned an MA in Educational Administration from Northwestern University. Tony married Bonnie Rovin August 1, 1971 in Chicago. They have celebrated 48 years of marriage.
After his time in the Marine Reserves, Tony’s entrepreneurial spirit built his own businesses to provide for his family before immersing himself in real estate for 30 plus years. His passion for people -meeting, learning from, and teaching- is visible in any conversation he has had. He spent all of his time and energy bettering himself and everyone he met. Then he spent all available time and energy on his wife, kids, grandchildren, and extended family and friends.
Those left to honor Tony’s memory include his loving wife, Bonnie; children: Erin Beth (Scott) Garvin, Robin (Mike Wagner) Wiszowaty, and Adam (Jessica) Wiszowaty; grandchildren: Wesley, Jasper, Reegan, Boden, Oliver, and Archer; siblings: Antoinette (Lawrence) Kunkel, Terry (Donald) Gimbel, and Rosemary (Robert) Florczak. He was preceded in death by his parents.
