Predeceased by siblings: Ronald, Joseph, Edward, Gerald and Loretta Fitzgerald. Also predeceased by his former wife, Joyce McLeod in 2009. The family would like to thank the staff at Middlesex Terrace in Delaware for their warm support during his short but comfortable residency and to the wonderful medical team at University Hospital for their care and attention.

Janice (McLeod) ChisholmWe were saddened to hear of Uncle Tony's passing. Although, we didn't see much of one another he was still thought of. Our son, Jeff Chisholm, played Baseball in London on the Canada Games team and I looked Tony up and we did get together that week at his home in London and at the ball field. Please accept our heartfelt thoughts and prayers and may his soul rest in peace.
