Anthony De Arcos

September 20, 1952 ~ September 3, 2022 (age 69)

Obituary

On September 3, 2022, Anthony “Tony” De Arcos passed at the age of 69.  A loving husband and father, Tony is survived by his wife Audrey, three children, Elizabeth (Adam), Matthew, and Anthony (Jennifer), five grandchildren, and one forever loyal dog. 

Born in Miami, Arizona in 1952, he grew up in the neighboring town of Claypool.  The baby of the family, Tony grew up in a house filled with extended family members.  He loved the outdoors, sports, and playing cowboys.  At sixteen, he began his lifelong love of running.  Tony ran countless races during his 51 years in the sport, from an annual Cookie Chaser 5k to his crown achievement, the Wasatch 100 endurance race.  He was an active member of the Salt Lake City Track Club for many years and influenced a great number of other runners, including his own daughter and youngest son.

When Tony was not running, he was hiking with family, trading jokes with everyone he knew, spoiling his grandchildren, and enjoying a good (and not so good) horror movie.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 24 at 11 a.m. at Living Streams Church in Phoenix.
