Anthony John Grundy(Tony)

July 18, 2023


Anthony John Grundy (Tony) passed away in Virginia Beach, VA on July 18, 2023.  Tony was born to Frederick and Irene Grundy in Folkestone, England and had recently celebrated his 78th birthday. 

Tony started his career in structural engineering in England and moved to the United States in 1973 with his wife, Jill Jestes and two children.  Tony was a free spirit and enjoyed fishing and being around the water.   He loved camping and spending time around the Chesapeake Bay.  He also enjoyed watching his favorite soccer team, Manchester United. In his later years, he enjoyed quiet times outside in his yard watching the birds and tending to his garden. Tony’s life partner, Shirley Boyd, passed away earlier in 2023 and they resided in Cortland, OH. 

Left to cherish Tony’s memory are his children, Sharon Schwab and husband Robert Schwab (Etters, PA) and Ivan Grundy (Virginia Beach, VA).  His brother, Mick Grundy resides in England.  His five grandchildren will miss him greatly, Kylie Schwab (22), Devon Schwab (19), Aidan Grundy (18), Jordan Schwab (17) and Isabella Grundy (16).  Tony had touched many lives across states and countries.  

The family has elected to do a private service to honor Tony’s memory.  In lieu of flowers, please visit to make contributions to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Tony’s honor.
