Anthony “Tony” Santi

Anthony “Tony” Santi, 41, a lifelong resident of Kansas City, MO, passed away Thursday, October 6, 2022, in Independence, MO. Visitation will be 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 11, at The Rock of KC, 12750 N. Winan Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64163. Funeral Services will be 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 12, at The Rock of KC. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery, Kansas City North.

Anthony was born May 6, 1981, in Kansas City, MO. His career began in 2011 with the Kansas City, Missouri Fire Department. He was dedicated to helping people through his role as a firefighter and EMT. In his later years, Tony was an avid humanitarian changing many lives for the greater good. Tony was a dedicated father, and his daughter Jillian was the light of his life. He had a vast love for nature and being outdoors. Tony was happiest being at the lake paddleboarding, hiking and spending time with his beloved dog, Donnie.

Tony could be seen with an infectious smile on his face and was often the one to bring laughter into the room. He was very family oriented and loved family get-togethers. Tony enjoyed traveling and making memories with his mom, sister, daughter, niece, and nephews. He valued spending time on his father’s farm riding four wheelers and spending time with his thoughts. Tony has a special place in his heart working with the Florabama community. He was a true protector of his cousins and always looked out for friends and loved ones. Tony always stood up for what was right. He was very involved in his spirituality and wanted more than anything for world peace and people to be unified.

Tony was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Salvatore “Sam” and Josephine (Radosta) Pernice; paternal grandfather Jerry Santi; and his aunt Linda Pernice.

Tony is survived by his daughter Jillian Santi; mother Angel Pernice; father Theodore “Ted” Santi; sister Christina Raines (Philip); niece Ava Raines; nephews Samuel and Benjamin Raines; uncles and aunts Philip P. Pernice, Jack Pernice (Robin), Steve Pernice (Lori), Annette Silvio (Tom), Tim Santi, Victoria Tran (Hieu), Coleen Ward (Paul); and several cousins.

Pallbearers will be his cousins: Vincent Pernice, Salvatore Pernice, Dominic Pernice, Michael Pernice, Anthony Pernice, David Castro, Joe Mike Castro, Paul Silvio, Salvatore Silvio and Anthony Silvio.

Honorary Pallbearers: Shawn Collins, Chris Arzola and Woodie Bonds.
