Anthony Renaldo Munoz, Sr. of Seaford, formerly from Midland, PA and Calcutta, OH, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Jan. 21, 2024. Born on May 21, 1943, he was a son of the late Nicholas and Sophia (Trevino) Munoz.

Anthony served proudly in the United States Army Infantry Division 2nd Med in Korea. He was a fireman for 25 years combined, retired lieutenant from Midland and volunteered in Calcutta. Before retiring he was a security guard at the East Liverpool City Hospital and Nanticoke Hospital in Seaford. He also worked at Crucible Steel, J & L Steel, Whemco, and Penn Power.

In addition to his parents, Anthony was preceded in death by his brothers, Thomas N. Quintana Sr., Leo J. Quintana, Nicholas Munoz and Rudy Munoz, his sisters Margaret Quintana, Isabelle Justice, and Rose Smith.

Surviving him is his spouse of 58 years, Betty L Munoz, Seaford; daughter, Christina (Phil) Chester, Seaford; son, Anthony (Jeannie) R. Munoz Jr., Seaford; his beloved grandchildren: Shiloh Chester, Athena Sammons, Ayden, and Asher Munoz; two sisters, Tina (Will) Wical, Lewes, Mona (Doug) Shrieves, Seaford, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Papa, as he was affectionately known by his grandchildren, loved to spend time with his family. They were his top priority. He enjoyed helping his son do yard work and was always ready to organize anything he could get his hands on. He enjoyed going to the beach, getting Thrasher’s Fries, sitting on the bench and “people watching” as he would call it. He supported his grandchildren in everything they did, cheering them on at numerous sporting events, riding to distant doctor’s appointments and giving them advice on life. He is going to be missed by those he left behind but will live on in every one of his family members. Anybody who met Tony will be forever touched by his kind smile and funny stories.

A Celebration of Life Service was held on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 3C Church in Delmar. 

Memorial contributions, in Anthony’s name, may be made, if desired, to 3C Church.
