Anthony Spina Obituary


Anthony Guido Spina age 77, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 20th, 2024. Anthony, known to many as Tony, was born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 1st, 1946. He was a graduate of Parma Senior High and after high school he served in the Vietnam War as a military police officer. He was a member of IBEW Local 38 in Cleveland, Ohio for 36 years. Before moving to South Carolina, he worked for several years completing general maintenance for Dillard’s department stores in the greater Cleveland area. He finished his work career with CBRE in Greenville, South Carolina. Tony was an avid golfer, and later in life a boat owner who enjoyed being a “captain” for his friends and family on Lake Bowen. He served his Cobbs Creek neighborhood as their HOA Vice President, and was always willing to give his time, energy, and experience for neighbors and community organizations in need. He enjoyed cheering for his Cleveland and Ohio sports teams. His strong Catholic faith carried him through life and sustained him through his battle with lung cancer.

Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife Malinda Spina (Hardin) of 53 years; his son Anthony James Spina, his wife Amy and their children Vinny and Nick Spina of Brunswick, Ohio; and his daughter Amanda Spina Davis and her husband Jeff of Forest City, North Carolina. He is also survived by his cousin and sister-in-life Maryanne Steigerwald and her husband Tom; his nephews Anthony Spino, Alfred Spino and his wife Monica. He was an uncle-in-life to Sara, TJ, Matthew, Katherine, Anne, John, Theresa, Donna, Monica, and Mark. He is also survived by an aunt; Grace DiGiandomenico and many cousins of Lorain, Ohio.

Tony was preceded in death by his father Antonio Spina and mother Cecilia Bruno Spina; brothers Guido Spina and Sam Spino and wife Mary; cousin and brother-in-life Nicholas DiGiando and wife Monica; nephews Adrian and Andrew Spino.
