TONY NYLANDER

Tony passed away on January 13, 2014 after a short but courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Rossland on July 12, 1952.  Tony spent some years working for Cominco before going back to school to become a certified chartered accountant. Unfortunately Tony’s MS made his eyes too weak to carry on at the job he loved. Tony enjoyed all of the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing with his family and friends. He especially enjoyed his time on the ocean at Desolation Sound in his cabin cruiser.

Tony is survived by his wife Joanne Doyle, son Anthony Janni, daughter Darci Janni, granddaughter Sara Janni, father Ron Janni (Shirley) mother Vera Michelsen, brothers Gary (Bernice), Ron (Susan), Leonard (Marijan), sisters Faye Tumber (Keith), Bev Mansell(Art), Connie Michelsen(Francis) and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his brother Allan.

Cremation has taken place in Nanaimo.

A celebration of Tony’s life will be held at the Genelle Hall on Sunday, May 18 from 1 – 3 pm.
