Memorial Tree in Loving Memory of Anthony J. DeFranco

Chip Holmes, CEO of Inter-Lakes Health, recently presented David DeFranco, of Hague, with a plaque in honor of his  father Anthony J. DeFranco Sr. Mr. DeFanco recently donated a tree to the Heritage Commons Courtyard in loving memory of his father and in appreciation of the great care his father received while an inpatient at Moses-Ludington Hospital.
The plaque will serve as a reminder of the donation and that tree stands in loving memory of Anthony J. DeFranco 1915-2011.

Tony W. DeFranco (Jr.) has planted many memorial trees over the years at DeFranco Landscaping. “It was a great honor to plant a tree with my dad for my grandfather. It brought back a lotof fond childhood memories of my grandfather teaching me the meaning of hard work- the only way- a hands on approach . Knowing who I was planting the tree in memory of, even with the tough soil conditions, I was able to get that hole dug for that tree in less than an hour, something I know my grandfather would have been very proud of. He was one who had a very hard old-school Italian work ethic and he measured everything in “work”. He would always ask ‘How you doing?’ and then follow it up with ‘How much work did you get done today?’ “, noted the younger DeFranco.

We are all certain that there are no leaky pipes in heaven now and the lake trout have better be on high alert.

Anthony J. DeFranco-1915-2011-"One of the Greatest Lake Trout Fisherman on Lake George" Thank you for instilling a hard work ethic in many generations of DeFrancos

Memorial trees seem to take on the personality of the loved one that they are planted for. It changes the way you look at that tree. Proper tree selection is also important.
