Anton Ted Valentic

Anton Ted “Tony” Valentic, 72, of Terre Haute, passed away Friday, Dec. 6, 2013. Tony was born Friday, Aug. 8, 1941, in Chicago, to his father, Anton Joseph Valentic; and mother, Ann E. Fallquist Valentic, who preceded Tony in death; along with Tony’s daughter, Michelle Marie Barnett. Tony graduated from DeVry University.

He worked at ATT, Unisys, Sony, Poly-One and Aisen Brake. He was a jack-of-all-trades. At age 60, Tony received his private pilot’s license. He was a HAM operator, WD9FES. He enjoyed woodworking, camping, gardening, welding, fishing and radio control airplanes. If you couldn’t find him at the house, chances were he could be found mowing or digging holes with his Kabota tractor.

He was deeply loved by those close to him. His best friend and beloved wife, Pamela Hartsock Clingerman Valentic, misses him dearly. He left behind three sons and their families, Robert B. Clingerman and his wife Paula and two sons, Aaron C. Clingerman, his wife Angela and two sons, and Robbie M. Valentic and his wife Marie and two daughters and one son; in-laws, Bert and Vivian Hartsock; sister-in-law, Janice Hartsock Campbell and daughter; three great-grandchildren; and cousins. He also left his sister, Virginia Valentic Sullivan, her companion Wally Butterworth; ; nieces and nephews; as well as adopted family Shaun and Tiffany O’Farrell and children.

Tony and his daughter, Michelle, were both organ donors.

Tony was cremated and there will be no memorial services, at his request. Tony felt people should visit one another when they are living. The family has entrusted DeBaun Funeral Homes Springhill Chapel, 85 E. Springhill Drive, with making arrangements. Online condolences can be made at:
