He is preceded in death by his mother Ludmilla and father Anthony A. Kmush of Denville, NJ.
Tony was born in Denville, NJ to Ludmilla and Anthony A. Kmush. He graduated from Newark College of Engineering (now NJIT) in 1974 with a BS degree in Computer Science. He married Rosemary Thor in 1980. After they married, Tony and Rosemary lived in Dover, NJ before moving to Randolph, NJ in 1989. His children remember him as a supportive father who encouraged them to pursue their goals.
He was a loving individual who adored traveling to off-the-beaten-path destinations, especially visiting lighthouses that were not easily accessible. With the family, he enjoyed bicycling, flying stunt kites, and flying drones. Weekends would often find him tinkering on cars, working on computers, and watching whatever Mythbusters, Star Wars, James Bond, or Doctor Who marathon was on. While the children were growing up, he was an active member at the Mt. Fern United Methodist Church, volunteering his time behind the scenes for various church fundraisers and functions. He was also an Assistant Boy Scout Leader and a USSF Youth Soccer Referee.
