Anthony "Tony" Holzer, 43, of Eyota, died unexpectedly, Sunday, January 16, 2022. Tony was born December 13, 1978 in Rochester to Curt and Geraldine (Patzner) Holzer. He graduated from St. Charles High School in 1997. Tony and Michele (Allhiser) were married August 19, 2006. They made their home in Rochester until moving to Eyota in 2016. Tony worked as a HVAC Installer for Tonna Mechanical of Rochester for more than 20 years.
Tony was truly a one of a kind, tell it like it is kind a guy who liked to make people laugh with his witty and sarcastic comments. He had a rough and tough exterior but a heart of gold on the inside. He would do anything for anybody, although complaining all the while (if you knew him you know). He had a passion for snowmobiling, older cars, Busch Lite, tattoos and hanging with the family and friends he loved the most.
Survivors include his wife, Michele, two children, Tyler and Carly, at home, his mother, Geraldine Holzer of St. Charles, siblings, Mike Holzer of St. Charles, Mark (Pam) Holzer of Zumbrota, Janell (Mike) Sipe of Mankato, Joe Holzer of St. Charles, Otis (Pons) Mosely of St. Charles, and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Curt, and a sister-in-law, Lori Holzer.
Private services will be held. A public Celebration of Life reception will begin at 1 p.m., Saturday, January 29, 2022, at the Eyota American Legion. Hoff Funeral Service of St. Charles is assisting the family. www.hofffuneral.com
