Anthony “Tony” A. Abraham, 77, Marshfield, passed away on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Norwood Health Center.

A celebration of life will be held for the Norwood staff and residence.

Tony was born on December 11, 1943 in Kansas City, Missouri to Ray and Doloras (Sparkman) Abraham. He graduated from East Glenbard High School in 1964.

Tony loved golfing and was a member of the PGA since 1969. He also enjoyed cars, a good lottery ticket, going out to dinner, spending time with his friends, kids and grandkids.  He always had a story to tell anyone who would listen and had a larger-than-life sense of humor. Tony had fun joining in activities at Norwood no matter what it was. He loved his deserts. He was very proud of his kids and grandkids accomplishments.

He is survived by his daughter, Elizabeth (Russ) Masanz of Mosinee, WI, sons, Mike Abraham of Aurora, IL, and Robert Abraham of Bolingbrook, IL, and grandchildren, Abigail (Andrew) Miller and Thomas Gisvold. He is also survived by his mother, Dolores Abraham Scheffer, and brother, Michael (Donna) Abraham, both of Norman, OK.

He was preceded in death by his father, Ray Abraham.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staffs of Norwood Health Center and Heartland Hospice for taking care of dad for the last 2 years.
