TONY JOHN Romish, 47, a long time resident of Spokane, Washington, born to Karla R. Hook of Idaho and Frank A. Romish of Washington, died on November 15th, 2016 in his home in Mead, Washington of causes related to his quadriplegic condition and recent illness. Tony is survived by his mother, Karla Romish, his children, Tony J. Romish II (27), Madison R. Romish (19), Lydia M. Romish (16), and Brigham A. Romish (15), his siblings along with their many beautiful children, David M. Romish (42) (children Justice, Karley, and Cameron), Willoe I. Romish-Toney (38) (children Sean and Morgan), Nicole M. Hannah (34) (children William, Aiden, and Naomi), and Hallie I. Howard (32) (children Tinslee and Bailee), and grandson by Tony II, Camden D. Romish (2).

TONY was a loving son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend. He was also an avid outdoorsman, motorsports fan, and active businessman. Tony's greatest love was finding any opportunity to combine time with family and friends with activities such as riding motorcycles and ATVs, hunting, fishing, enjoying nature, or exploring new innovations or business opportunities. Despite a tragic event in 2008 that resulted in his quadriplegic state, he never lost his passion for those things he enjoyed and found innovative ways to stay active and involved. Tony's indelible stamp on everyone and a good time had was his unmistakable laugh and infectious smile.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS were the most important part of his life. Tony was devoted to his family and friends throughout his life, always striving to improve their lives in every way possible. Regardless of time, distance, or circumstances, Tony was always there with whatever love, support, or assistance he could offer. As many do, he sometimes struggled with how best to demonstrate and provide that love, support, and assistance, but no one would ever doubt his deep love and commitment to each and every one of his family and close friends. This was especially true of his intense love for each of his four children, four siblings, nieces, nephews, grandson, and mother. He made his home to be an inviting center of activity in his final years and lived life on his own terms and doing things his way, desiring that this could be an example to all of those for whom he cared. For someone with little control of so many things in his life due to his physical condition in the final years of his life, this is a testament to his extraordinary strength of will and pioneering spirit.

The funeral service will be held this upcoming Saturday, November 26th, 2016, at 11:00 am PT at the Greenbluff LDS Chapel, 5302 E. Greenbluff Rd., Colbert, WA 99021. All are invited to join in the celebration of his life and to pay their respects.
