Tony was born on December 27, 1933, to Sebastian and Elizabeth (Wagner) Johs. He was raised on the family farm in Burnstad in Logan County. He worked on the family farm until he was 21 and then went to work as a carpenter.

He married Mary Lou Schneider on October 24, 1956. Together they raised their four children, Karen, Steve, Melinda and Donna. In 1976 Tony started his own business, Anton Johs Construction, where he continued working until his retirement. Even in his retirement years, Tony continued to work at least a few days a week.

Tony was a member of Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. He enjoyed his free time going camping and fishing. He was a great “fix-it” man – he could fix just about anything.

He is survived by his son, Steven (Jeanne) Johs, Bismarck; daughters, Melinda (Alan) Schadler, Fargo, and Donna (Tony) Wilson, Bismarck; brothers, Leo (Lillian) Johs, Mesa, Ariz., and Edward (Jean) Johs, Fargo; sisters, Mary Ann (Larry) Leier, Valley City, and Pauline (Tony) Fettig, Steele; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Tony was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Lou; daughter, Karen Johs; his parents; and sister, Lillian (Beanie) Scherr.
