Anthony “Tony” Francis Ingala, 23, of Southington, passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 24, 2021, after sustaining injuries from a motor vehicle accident.
Tony was born in Meriden on August 24, 1997, youngest son of Timothy and Amy (Truskowski) Ingala.
Tony graduated from SHS, class of 2015. Tony had a heart of gold and with his soulful, compassionate, and wise-beyond-his-years personality, he always made a lasting impression. He enjoyed thrill seeking activities on his BMX bike and skiing. On other days, you could find him in his garden with his headphones, listening to a variety of music and studying the soil or having a philosophical conversation with anyone and everyone. Tony always had an incredible inner strength to further his understanding of a deeper meaning to life. He was an animal lover to his pets Freckles, Lucy, Genny, Hannah, Louie and cousin Tiki, and enjoyed pet sitting for Willis, Tanner, Stoli, Samantha, Bella, and Molly. Tony was an old soul in a young body and was cherished deeply by his friends and family. He will be deeply missed.
In addition to his parents, Tony is survived by his brother, Nicholas Ingala and his girlfriend Aliyah Cirillo, best friend of Tony, both of Southington, and his paternal grandparents, Timothy and Paula Ingala of Farmington and Roger and Penny Anderson of E. Hampton. He is also survived by two uncles, Michael and Tammy Ingala and Joseph and Darlene Ingala, all of Meriden and several cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Mary King and maternal grandparents, Francis and Loraine (Mendel) Truskowski.
