Anthony "Tony" Eugene Toluba, 85, of Vicksburg, Pennsylvania, passed away Thursday June 13, 2024 from Parkinsons complications albeit peacefully at home surrounded by family. He was the husband of Margaret "Peggy" Newberry Toluba to whom he was married for nearly 55 years.

Most recently, Tony owned and operated the Vicksburg Inn for many years with his wife Peggy. Tony, a man for all seasons, enjoyed entertaining guests with his ukulele and debating the finer points of politics. 

Above all, he loved life, was very kind and generous, and was a very loving man to his wife and children.
