Anthony Edward Bono

March 5, 1952 — February 16, 2024

St. Charles, Missouri

Anthony Bono, better known as Tony, of St. Charles Missouri  passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024 at the age of 71.

Tony was born the oldest of 5 on March 5, 1952 to Charles and Dorothy Bono in St. Louis until they moved to St. Charles when he was 8 years old.  Tony graduated from St. Charles High School where he also met and courted his sweetheart Yvonne until they married in 1972.  They went on to have two beautiful daughters Tara and Stephanie and were married for 51 years through the good, the bad, and the sick until Jesus called Tony Home.

Tony graduated tech school and started out as a welder at Hunter Engineering for 7 years until he was led by his brother n law Ted Hibbs to make a move to Kurtz Concrete where he became a truck driver. He retired after 30 years. Some of his daughter’s favorite memories are getting to ride in his concrete truck and when the weather was bad they knew he would be there when they didn’t have school. They knew it was a day they would get to have their pops chef for them (Beenies and weenies & fried bologna sandwiches were a couple favorites)  along with getting  to watch all the game shows. 

Tony was preceded in death by his brother Barry who he loved chauffeuring around unless it was around dinner time, father Charles and mother Dorothy who raised 5 kids in a 3 bedroom house filled with life, love, and a strong Sicilian heritage. 

Tony is survived by his loving wife whose prayers and faith in Jesus Christ saved us all,  daughter Tara (fiancé Freddy Wilkerson),  daughter Stephanie (Steve Goeke), Grandkids Tayler Bono, Olivia and Andrew Goeke, sister Susan (Bob) Flemming, brother David (Joyce) Bono,  and sister Vicki (Tim) McCallister, Goddaughter April Kile Foster, Godson Jeremy Bono, Goddaughter Jennifer Hancock, along with many nieces and nephews.

Tony had many things that he loved; cars & racing (he always said he wished he would have never sold his 57 Chevrolet), fishing (no matter where he went with water he always brought all his poles and gear), playing ball and coaching (his daughters remember him never missing a game and will never forget the time where they needed an umpire and he split his pants), playing cards,  WWE wrestling,  vacationing at Table Rock Lake, and always singing his favorite songs when they came on. He was a funny man and loved making people laugh, and if you caught his hulk or orangutan impressions you were lucky. 

We will always carry your memory in our hearts.

A Celebration of Life will be held on April 6, 2024 at American Legion in St. Charles from 2-6pm. 

In his memory, donations can be made to the American Diabetes Association and Mental Health Foundation.
