Anthony “Tony” Van Lab, age 60, of Upper Sandusky, Ohio passed away on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 12:45AM at his home in Upper Sandusky.

Tony was born on February 9, 1952 at St. Rita’s Hospital in Lima, Ohio to Richard and Barbara Jean (Bennett) Lab both of whom are deceased. He married his high school sweetheart, Becky Miller on December 4, 1971 at the First Lutheran Church by the Rev. Charles Steward and she survives in Upper Sandusky.

Also surviving Tony are two sons, Andrew and his wife Megan, Lab and Curtis Lab and his girl friend Lindsey Miller all of Upper Sandusky and five grandchildren, Hannah, Kayla, Nicholas, Dominique and Clayton Lab.

Tony graduated from Upper Sandusky High School in 1970 and began working for Koehler Drug then moving on to the Ohio Power Company. From there he went to work for the Daily Chief Union Newspaper in Upper Sandusky until his retirement due to his becoming disabled.

In earlier years Tony coached little league baseball here in Upper Sandusky. And for hobbies he enjoyed reading, keeping up on politics, following sports especially the OSU football and the New York Yankees, and anything having to do with American Eagles. And those around Tony knew of his love of a good glass of ice tea.

A Memorial Service Celebrating the Life of Anthony “Tony” Lab will be held at 11:00AM Saturday, June 9, 2012 at the Lucas-Batton Funeral Home in Upper Sandusky with the Rev. Ken Wessler officiating the services. The Family will receive family
and friends following the memorial service at the funeral home on Saturday.

Message: We are both so sorry to hear about Tony's passing. I remember him so clearly from when he was little - always smiling. He was the delight of his parents I have been reviewing tapes of past reunions and I just saw him as he was about 18 years ago. It was such a treat to see him and Barb and Dick. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. We are sorry that we are unable to come but we will be in Ohio the following week. Love, Aunt Carol and Uncle Ed
