Obituary of Walter Anthony Milosky
With deep sorrow, the family of Tony Milosky shares his passing. Tony passed away on April 21, 2021.
Tony was born July 7, 1950 and graduated from Walther Hines Page High School. Later in life, he earned a degree in History from UNCG. For a number of years, Tony was a troop leader in the Boy Scouts. Tony was a life-long member of St. Pius X Catholic Church, and a member of the Knights of Columbus of Greensboro. This would not be complete without mentioning his deep faith and knowledge of Church history.
Tony’s passion for history stayed with him to the very end. If you were able to spend time with him at any time in the last few years, you know he always had a stack of books he was working his way through – most of them related to some aspect of history. An avid reader, Tony also loved espionage and action thrillers.
He was always the go to for people whenever they had questions about history. He had the dates and events in his head. If he wasn’t sure, he knew how to find out.
Tony made many friends through his life and touched many lives. He was loved and did not die alone.
He was preceded in death by our mother Leah Milosky and father Walter Milosky, both of whom passed away in 1995.
Survivors include his sister Vee Cheek and her husband (Leon) of Kernersville, NC, his brother Chris (and wife Kathy) of Fresno, CA, his brother Bryan of Morrisville, NC, nephew Corey of Kernersville, niece Caitlyn of Chesapeake, VA, and niece Emmy (and husband Vince) of Norfolk, VA.
We may sorrow for now and for a time live in the shadow of dark clouds, but as J. R. R. Tolkien wrote:
“A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.”
