Anthony Grandovic Obituary

Anthony J. Grandovic, age 82, of North Fayette Township, Coraopolis, PA, passed away at Allegheny General Hospital on Saturday, December 16, 2023. Tony was born in Sewickley, PA, on September 9, 1941, son to the late Elizabeth (Knafelc) and Anthony Joseph Grandovic; devoted husband of 58 ½ years to Virginia “Jeanne” (Relko) Grandovic; beloved father to Mary Lambert and her husband, Ernest, and Monica Grandovic and her husband Richard Moss; cherished grandfather to Ava Marie; sister to Harriet Brooks. Tony was a proud man who loved to make people smile; he was quick to tell a joke to all he would meet. Tony loved his family and would work three jobs to give them everything they wanted or needed, but most of all he gave them LOVE. He appreciated music and enjoyed playing his accordion while watching people smile, laugh, and dance. The one thing his band, The DTO Orchestra, would not let him do, however, was sing as he could play but not carry a tune. The DTO played together for over 50 years with the culminating achievement of being nominated for a Grammy Award. The apple of his eye was his granddaughter, Ava Marie, who loved music as much as he did. If he could have, he would have given Ava the sun, the stars, and the moon. When you think of Tony, remember the smirk on his face as he told you a joke. Family to receive friends at the HERRICK COMPASSIONATE FUNERAL SERVICE, PC, Edward M.
