Todor Sekosan

February 14, 1950 ~ August 5, 2017 (age 67)

Todor “Tony” Sekosan, age 67, of Hallandale Beach, Florida, and, formerly of Sidney, Ohio, passed away at 4:00 A.M. Saturday, August 5, 2017 at his residence in Florida. He was born in Begejci (Torak), Yugoslavia, on February 14, 1950, to the late Janko and Aurora (Miok) Sekosan. 

He is survived by his daughters, Ramona (Thomas) Wright of San Diego, California; Cassandra (John) Weaver of Columbus, Ohio, and her children, Joseph Thomas, Maria Isabella, Sophia Francesca, Lucianna Rose, and Gianna Gabriella; sister, Marijana Popi of Hallandale Beach, Florida; niece, Lavinia (Seymour) Lev-Har of Boynton Beach, Florida; former wife and mother of his two children, Dian Sekosan of Sidney, Ohio; and former step-daughter, Kellie (Marion) Shoffner of Port Jefferson, Ohio, and her two sons.

Tony made his journey from a small, Eastern European, farming village during the turbulent years of the Cold War to Sidney, Ohio, where he settled in a career as an Aerospace Machinist at Sidney Tool & Die, Inc. Tony was an avid soccer fan, and as a young man, he was a formidable player for clubs in both Yugoslavia and the United States. He also enjoyed old world cooking, gardening, and preparing meat delicacies for friends and family. He treasured time spent tinkering in his workshop and became the go-to Mr. Fixit for many. Showing pigeons in the European tradition, for which Tony won numerous awards, was a beloved pastime. He was a proud grandfather of five grandchildren. 

Visitation will be held Saturday, August 12, 2017, from Noon to 1 P.M. at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in Jackson Center. A graveside service will follow at the Glen Cemetery in Port Jefferson, Ohio.

The arrangements are in the care of the staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in Jackson Center.
