Tony Robles Medina was born on February 27th, 1951 in Oakland, CA and passed away peacefully on April 7th, 2021, while surrounded by his loved ones. He was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Belia and his siblings Olga, John, and Thomas
He is survived by his wife, Sylvia, sons Aaron, Alex (Monica), Tony Jr, Jimmy and daughter Crystal (Benjamin). He had 16 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. He also survived by his siblings, sisters Alice, Mary, Cecilia, and brothers Henry Jr, Eddie, Marcos, Armando, and Steven.
Tony was a veteran who proudly served his country as a US Marine. He enjoyed some favorite past times as an avid sports fan. He enjoyed baseball but not as much as he enjoyed football, being a big Oakland Raiders fan. He enjoyed listening to “old school” music and especially singing to his heart’s content.
He will be greatly missed especially by his grandchildren. There is not a day that “Tata Tony” was not around them. You would see him on a daily basis being the chauffeur, babysitter, disciplinarian. He would take the grandkids on their McDonald runs or a stop at the neighborhood store, Soto’s, for some snacks. And if you were good and behaved well, you enjoyed a Birthday shopping spree with Tata.
Viewing will be held from 5:00pm until 8:00pm on Friday, April 23rd, 2021, at Legacy Funeral Home, 1374 N. Arizona Ave., Chandler, AZ 85225. Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, April 24th, 2021, at 10:00am at Sacred Heart Church, 1421 S. 12th St., Phoenix, AZ 85034.
We, the Medina Family, want to thank all the providers and staff at the VA hospital who took care of our husband/father, Tony.
Also, thank you to all our family and friends who supported and reached out to us throughout this difficult time.
