Anthony 'Tony' Molle

January 19, 1956 - May 6, 2022

Anthony 'Tony' Molle, age 66, passed away on Friday, May 6, 2022.

Tony is survived by his wife, Josephine Molle; daughter, Jessica (Danny) Normandin; granddaughter, Olivia Normandin, and his father, Palmerino Molle.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Antonietta Molle and his brother, Frank (Rose) Molle. Tony also leaves behind his in-laws, Maria (Jack) Lopez, Norma (Dino) Szajner, Rose Molle and several nieces, nephews, and great nieces.   

Although Tony was born in Windsor, Ontario, he spent most of his adult life in Michigan. He met his wife, Josephine, in 1974 and they married in 1977; this September they would have celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary.

Tony worked in the Computer Science field for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and Hewlett Packard (HP), and maintained his builder's and real estate licenses, which ultimately became the focus of passion and business endeavors.

He enjoyed daily workouts at Lifetime Fitness where he made many strong friendships. Tony also enjoyed boating on Upper Straits Lake, bike riding, traveling, playing euchre and spending time with extended family. 

After retirement, Tony focused on activities that brought him tremendous joy: spending time with his daughter, Jessica, and son in-law, Danny, and granddaughter, Olivia.

Tony loved to cook and was a great chef. He had a knack for finding the best deals, especially when shopping for his next recipe. A parishioner of Prince of Peace Catholic Church in West Bloomfield, Tony was a devout Catholic who sought and found ways to live out the virtues of faith each day.

Tony had a vibrant personality and will always be remembered for his zest for life and his positive influence on the countless people who crossed his path. It was rare for Tony to go places and not run into someone he knew. He was a dependable and dedicated husband, and a supportive, protective, and a devoted father and grandfather. Life with Tony was full of joy, laughter, and love.

The family will receive friends on Friday, May 13th, from 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. Rosary Service at McCabe Funeral Home, 31950 W. 12 Mile Rd., Farmington Hills.
