  2. Sambo, Kiki, Nona, A.J., Dorothy, Poppie and all the Ingos,
    I cannot express the sadness I feel in my heart for you and for everybody who was honored enough to have known Anthony. I will forever remember Anthony’s contagious smile, how he called me “granola” and how much he made me laugh. Just being in his presence made me smile. He had such a bright spirit and kind heart. I’m blessed, honored and proud to have crossed his path on earth.
    Love, love, love you, Shelby

  3. Sam, Kriste and the entire Ingo Clan,
    Lyman and I were so sorry to hear about Anthony. I hope you know that our thoughts are with you and the whole family. He will be greatly missed by so many people.

    Cara and Lyman

  4. Anthony always made us feel like we were his best customers. We will miss seeing him every three months.

  5. We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of “Ants.” I have known Ants since childhood, and he came back into our lives with our daughter, Jordan Aragon, being in his Pueblo’s Best 4-H club for the previous 3 three years. Ants has always been a great friend, and besides the personal loss which we, his friends and you his family feel, this world has lost a great man, and children have lost a great role-model. Our sympathy, prayers, and love go out to you all.

  6. Dear Auntie Dorothy, Uncle Sam, and all my cousins,
    My deepest sympathy is with all of you. I had a dream the night after Anthony died that Grandma Bessie, Grandpa Tony, and my Grandpa Bob were standing in heaven with
    Anthony. It was wounderful to see all of them together. You will always be in my heart and in my prayers.

  7. Dear Family I am so sorry for your loss, it breaks my heart to see you having to go thru this. I can’t imagine losing a child, or sibling, and never to be able to share with them any more. I know in my heart that he will never be more than a memory or prayer away but not being able to touch him hug or kiss him again is unthinkable, but always remember he is in your hearts and your minds. Look at each other and you can see him, look at this children and you can see and be with him and this will help you get thru the days ahead. I will miss him so much, we only saw each other once in a while, and I regret it wasn’t more, I regret our lives get so busy and we don’t spend more time with the people we love. And by seeing all the people today at his service you can all see how you are loved how Ants was loved you should be very proud that he was yours. And he was so proud of all of you especially his children you are his legacy and it is a grand one. I love you family and you are all in our thoughts and prayers! love the sabotts kerry mary brett& kerry elizabeth

  8. Brad and I were very sad to here about Tony. We will always remember him as our best man at our wedding 30 years ago in June. The fun we had at school and out. We will always have him in our hearts because we have our daughter Toni that was named after him. Our prayers are with the family and friends. We are sad that we could not be there today but our jobs kept us away. Our Condolences to all of you, Brad and Darla

  9. With deepest sympathy for your loss. Anthony was such a wonderful and kind person and such an outstanding role model for all the kids involved in 4-H. Last year was the first year that our oldest son Lane joined 4-H and Anthony was there for him and us every step of the way. He went out of his way to help us on more than one occassion and he was so proud of Lane when he placed 3rd in his 1st year. He has touched so many people and he will be missed dearly.

  10. To the Ingo Family,

    Please accept our condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    James Mason and family

  13. To the entire Ingo family. We are so sorry for your loss.Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  14. To tho entire Ingo Family. We are truly sorry for your loss. It was a shock to hear. He was such a great person and always had smile on his face and “Hello” for everyone. He will be missed by all. Know that you are all in our hearts and prayers.

  15. To the entire INGO family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this unexpected time of loss. Anthony was definitely a one of a kind that always had a smile on his face no matter what he may have been thinking. We will miss him but we will always remember him. God Bless
    Chris, Maile, Trisha, Kiani, Mitchell, Jayson & Jaelah Ortiz

  16. AJ, Nona and Ingo family: I really am having a hard time expressing my friendship and admiration of Anthony. He was a great “buddy” to me and we had a long standing pact – when I retired, he would retire from 4-H. I never thought this would happen. The Pueblo County 4-H program will have a hard time finding someone who loved and cared for the kids as much as Anthony did. I will miss him tremendously and feel proud that we are dedicating the 2007 County Fair to him. God Bless

  17. My memories of Anthony start back when I was very young. He always brighted the day when he’d come and visit while I was at Nani’s I still remember the day when I got to go to the ranch with Anthony to feed the cattle. This was a very special thing for me because he got me out of taking a nap.

    Anthony was also a very easy person to talk to. Anybody who has ever known him will tell you so. Whether it was how the grass grew that day or something more important, Anthony always had something to talk about.

    He was a great cousin and a good friend. My memory of him will never be lost.

    Sincerely with love & sorrow.
    Josh Martin

  18. To Anthony’s family: Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of Anthony. We are a customer of his in Pueblo West; and truly felt he was one of the most friendliest and sincere people we have known here. He always took time to visit and tell about his love for his family, ranch and good italian cooking. You felt like you had just spent time with someone you had known for many years after a visit with Anthony. He was always smiling and left you smiling as well. He will be deeply missed. God Bless.

  19. Bug and A.J. Im so sorry for you guys and i truly wish the best for you. Uncle will be missed in all of southern Colorado. He was the greatest Unlce anyone could ask for. everytime i saw him he put a smile on my face and made the world a better place. there is not a single day that passes that i dont think of him and you guys. i wish all the best of luck and you guys and all of the family are in my prayers. I LOVE YOU ALL

  20. We are so very sorry for your loss. Anthony had a great impact on Shazia, Taylor, Coltan and Ravenn in 4H over the last 4 years. He was a wonderful man with a great big love for so many. Please do not hesitate to call us if there is anything at all that we may do to help your family. We will continue to keep your family in our prayers.

  21. To the Ingo Family: On behalf of the Parishioners of Sacred Heart Church in Avondale we extend to you our deepest sympathy. Anthony was our “bug guy” and a friend. He was in the office spraying on April 25th and like always we had a very nice visit. He deeply loved his family and would talk about you often. He was a very kind and generous man. We will truly miss his monthly visits and his great “gift of gab”

  22. A.J., Nona, papa Sam…and the whole Ingo family- Our thoughts and prayers are with you and family. Anthony was one of a kind! A smile on his face no matter how is day was going, or how hot the weather was. A story about his kids no matter how big of a hurry he was in, to listen to him talk about A.j. and Nona anyone would know how much he adored them, how much they meant to him, and how he went through everyday just for them. Anthony was always good for a great big hug and a huge smile “how are you babe” he would always ask. Anthony was many things to alot of people…but a friend to everyone. He will be greatly missed everyday and never forgotten.

  23. Dearest Ingo Family,

    We can’t express how much we will miss Anthony. He was a thoughtful, wonderful, and caring person.

    The Mesa has lost a terrific resident.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Cameron, Jennifer, Deano and Craig Allen

  24. Anthony, at least we now have an angel watching over us as we run our routes. Your good nature and honesty will truely be missed in the World. Thanks for being a friend and compatriot in the Pest Control Industry.

  25. Aj, Nona, Nonie, and Poppie, and the rest of your friends and family. Just know you guys have been very much in my thoughts and prayers this week!

  27. We want to send our prayers and thoughts to all of the Ingo family. May God bless you and help you through this time of sorrow. You know that you can always call if any of you need anything.

  28. To Anthony’s Family,
    To share in your memories, I was a friend of your dad’s (son, etc) in Junior High and High School. He always had a smile on his face and was continually a “happy” person. Always having a good time and very fun to be around. I have always remembered him as a “joker” sort of guy. I am sure he will be missed in a happy way. Know that the Lord is with you and him at this time and He will guide you continually as you seek Him for strength and comfort.
    In Him, Barbara (Barth) Andersen

  29. Even though many years have passed since I last spoke to Anthony, my memories of him bring a smile and warmth to my heart. We are so sorry for the loss of a dad, a husband, a son, a brother, and a friend. He was many things that make the people of the St. Charles Mesa, special.

    Tammy Muhic and the Muhic Family

  30. To the Ingo Family, I am so sorry for your loss and know that my prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.

  31. To the whole Ingo Family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Tony was truly “One of a Kind” and will never be forgotten. May God bless you all.

  32. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Anthony’s family. He will be greatly missed and did a lot for the Pueblo County 4-H program.

    Gregg, Kris, Jessica & Danielle Hartman

  33. The first time I met him was as a freshman in H.S. He and Danny Q. were sitting with each other at lunch, and offered me a seat. I quickly found out that Anthony was the quiet joker, while Danny was a bit more,, loud.
    Anthony always greeted whomever he knew, no matter where or what was happening. Even when busy, he takes a minute to “catch up” when you run into him.
    Anthony will not be forgotten.

  34. AJ, Nona and the entire Ingo Family. We are deeply saddened by the loss of your dad. Your Dad was one of the Greatest guys!! He will be deeply missed!! Love, Christy, Darren and Paige

  35. Nona, AJ, Gail, Austin and family. We are so sorry to hear about Anthony’s passing. He was a wonderful person and will live on through you all. He left behind a lot of fun memories and a part of himself with anyone that ever knew him. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless

    Jim, Cheryl, Justin, Janna, Jacie and Jimie Hartman

  36. A.J., Nona, and entire Ingo family our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. Anthony was a wonderful man and will be missed by everyone. We will always cherish his memories. If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.

  37. Nona & AJ and the entire Ingo family, We are so saddened to learn of Anthony’s passing. There were few men as noble as Anthony so have peace in knowing that your dad is among the last of his kind. He knew no strangers and reached out to everyone he came into contact with. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him but how lucky we are to have him as our angel!
    With our deepest sympathy,
    Candee, Toby and Kyle Villanueva

  38. Gail & family we are so sorry for your loss. At times like these we never know the reasons why or understand the loss of a friend or loved one. Sandi and I will always cherish the memories, and be forever thankful for having been given the gift of a friend.



  40. I am very sorry for your loss We will miss seeing him around. Pueblo County has lost a real great person

  41. Sam, Dorothy, AJ, Nona, Rick, Samo, Beth and the rest of the family: It took me a long time to do this because every time I started I couldn’t finish. Ants was a brother to me a LONG time before we became brother-in-laws. I remember the first day in kindergarten and all the new kids I met, but I already knew Ants, JD Yates and Dianne Kyle. I cannot remember a time when I didn’t know him. We grew up so close together I guess it was just natural to know each other. I cannot even begin to understand how much our 2 families influenced us. I remember being mad at my Mom and Dad and staying at Sam & Dorothys, and at the same time Ants was mad with you guys and staying at my house. As we got older we grew apart but we always knew that the other was only a phone call away if something was needed. When I think of the number of hours we spent together painting and working on cars, the number of nights I slept in the basement at Ants’ or he stayed at my house and all the time we were out enjoying being young it is no wonder people thought we were related long before we were. Ants was always there if you needed him and he was a great friend. We all lost so much losing him, but we were all made so much richer just by knowing him. Guys please know that I love you all and if you need anything do not hesitate to give me a call.

  42. Ingo Family,
    My deepest sympathy is with you and your family. Anthony was a great friend. He was always there for me when i needed him the most…My memories with Ants go way back when but my most recent memory is when we went to Fowler in February and took my sheep up to the sale. We had to pick up feed and then hed home. He said it would be like and hour and ahalf that turned out to be 3 hours. He knew everyone everywhere we went. we had a great time just driving around and he would always tell me how he enjoyed watching his nephews rope while he was sitting in his truck smoking a cigar. he loved kids and any thing that involved them…i love him with all my heart and Noni Popi Nona and Aj remember that he is watching you all and wants the best for you. I ¢¾ YOU ALL

  43. A.J., Nona, Popi, Noni and Family:
    We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God bless your family.

  44. TO the Ingo Family, It was an honor to work with Anthony on the Fair board for the past years. With him nothing was impossible when I worked with him. His devotion to the kids was always first and he was such a good friend. My prayers go out to you and know that I will never forget that great big smile and big heart. I will miss him. May God bless all of you and keep you.patty Ballou
