Antonio J. Bonilla
Born: November 6th,1994
Deceased: February 2nd 2015

Antonio J. Bonilla, also know to his family as “Tony” and by his friends as “Bonilla” passed away on Monday morning, February 2nd 2015. He was only 20 years old. He is survived by his mother, Carmen V. Cruz and his father, Abel A. Bonilla. His son, Xavier J. Bonilla, and his two siblings, Victoria and Nikolas Jacob.

As a child Tony was always bursting with energy. He had the ability to brighten our days with just showing us his wonderful smile. And as most boys, he developed a love for all sports. He participated in cross-country racing, baseball, basketball, boxing, wrestling, and his all time favorite, football.

As he grew up he became a wonderful young man. Loyal to his family and friends. He was a caring father and a beloved son. Our hearts will forever be broken without him to fill the empty void, that’s been left behind due to his early departure. He didn’t realize how special he was to many people around him. How many lives he touched on a daily basis. How many of us relied on his smiles, on his hugs, on his ability to cheer just about anyone up with his goofiness. But I know our son is at peace now. God heard our son and brought him home where he will eternally be alive.

We won’t say good bye to you my son, but we’ll see you later…
