July 16, 1938 — July 10, 2013
Anthony “Tony” Joseph Garrido Jr., 74, of Diamond Springs, passed away on July 10, 2013. He was born July 16, 1938, in Sacramento to Anthony and Vera Garrido. He graduated from Christian Brothers High School before attending Sacramento City College. He then worked more than 30 years for PG&E. He is survived by his mother, Marlene Garrido; his wife and soulmate of 44 years; and their eight children, 18 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Tony’s greatest joy came in spending time with his ever-growing family, whether it was attending reunions, picnics, sporting events or school plays. His children and grandchildren could always count on him to be there. Second only to his dedication to his family was his love for baseball — whether it be as a participant, spectator or coach. He played baseball all through high school and college and then competition fast pitch softball for many years. He enjoyed discussing and passing along his vast knowledge of the game to anyone who would listen. He had a very kind heart and quick wit and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
As per Tony’s request a private memorial will be held on July 2O in Pollock Pines, Calif. After the great care and support received from Snowline Hospice, the family requests that memorial donations be made to them at 180 Industrial Drive, Placerville, CA 95667.
