Tony was so full of life and love. He live a remarkable life, and his face would light up as you watch him tell an amazing adventure. He was a generous and loving soul. We will miss him.

I am proud to call this man my brother-in-law. He was the backbone of our family after the death off Louise and my parents. He held and integral part in helping me raise my two boys into fine gentlemen that I am so proud of. He will be missed by all who knew him well. We used to love his and real-life experiences when he would finally talk about them.
Very few people love life as much as Uncle Tony. He just renewed his pilot’s license this year! He was always learning, was active and enjoyed himself. He left nothing on the table. We are blessed that he joined our family circle. ❤️❤️ Love and prayers to you, Mary.
No one could hold a candle to Uncle Tony. The world is dimmer without him.

Louis Anthony "Tony" Guerra
Louis Anthony “Tony” Guerra, 88, went home to be with the Lord Thursday, December 8, 2022, at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville.
He was born in Tampa, FL and was a son of the late Vincente and Felisa Diaz Guerra. He served his country honorably in the U. S. Army and retired after 22 years’ service. He would later be Director of Security at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station and retired a second time from his service there. He was proud to have been in law enforcement for 47 years.
He was revered by family and friends as an AMAZING man. He was fearless, devoted to his family and proud of them. Tony will be remembered as humorous, generous and willing to help others. Friends said of him “he brought light and laughter to their world each day. He was inspiring to others. He was fearless, yet humble, always well-spoken and polite. He would never stand for the wrong treatment of others”. He came through several difficult times in his life and was considered a survivor. He enjoyed classical music and especially enjoyed listening to it while driving.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, Louise Kaney Guerra in 2021.
He leaves behind his daughter, Mary Ann Guerra as well as several good friends.
