Life Story

ELKHART—Tony C. Hemminger, 74, of Elkhart, met his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at his home, surrounded by family. Tony was born on October 14, 1944 in Elkhart to the late Carlyle E. and Rosemary (Maust) Hemminger. He married his sweetheart Anne M. Ditmer on August 9, 1969 in Elkhart. Tony is survived by his wife of 50 years, Anne; three spirited daughters, Marci (Brian) Husek, Julie Hemminger (Kris Kammerer) and Courtney (Eric) Gnass; three grandchildren, Bowen, Tad Husek and Hallie Gnass; and a brother, John (Kathy) Hemminger. 

 

Tony was a proud 1962 graduate of Elkhart High School, where he played football, and a 1969 Bethel College alumnus. He enjoyed his career as a computer programmer/analyst.  He was a member of the Nappanee Missionary Church and the ESPMen’s group. As part of his church activities, a particular highlight was visiting the AGC Baby Center in Kenya.  Tony was also a civil war buff, and was proud to share he had visited Gettysburg an impressive 10 times. He was an avid Notre Dame fan and enjoyed holding season football tickets for 40 years. His proudest accomplishments were being a dedicated, loving, and humorous husband, father, grandpa, and friend.
