In loving memory of Robert “Tony” Constantino, born May 5, 1938 in San Fernando, CA, died July 12, 2019 in Bullhead City, AZ. He is predeceased by his wife Diane M.W. (Smolarek) Constantino; Mother Jennie (Torres) Constantino; Father Hugo “Pete” Constantino; and siblings Nanette (Constantino) Chassey, Betty (Constantino) Kays, Philip Constantino, William “Bill” Constantino, and Peter Constantino. He is survived by his daughter Terry Constantino; daughter-in-law Lynn Hammond; Grandson Mark Hammond, II; and Mother-in-Law Rev. Evelyn Hammond.
Tony worked as a machinist and alarm installer before being disabled. But, his passion was everything about cars & gardening. Over the years, he loved working on his ’60 and later his ‘71 Chevy Impala. He loved watching wrestling (or as Dad called it, “wrassling”) on television. His favorite TV show was the Knight Rider. Tony also enjoyed listening to music, especially anything by Michael Jackson & Celine Dion. He was charming, enjoyed talking with just about anyone, but he could also be a stinker at times. Tony enjoyed arguing on just about any topic, as much as he liked talking. He was loved by his friends and family and will be deeply missed.
He lived the majority of his life in the San Fernando Valley, raised in Sunland, and lived his early years in Arleta and later in North Hills and Van Nuys. Tony spent the last several months of his life in Bullhead City, AZ to be close to his daughters. He was cremated at Desert Lawn Funeral Home in Bullhead City, AZ and will be interred, next to his wife, at Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery, 10621 Victory Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91606. Date to be determined. His daughters would like to thank friends and family for their kind words, love & support.
