Bayarri, Manuel Anthony, 83, of Boca Raton, FL passed away on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. He was one of 4 children born to the late Manuel Bayarri Hurtado and Mercedes Bayarri Calabuig in Valencia, Spain on April 28, 1934.

He came from humble beginnings and after his father's death he started working at the age of 13 to support his family. He was very driven to succeed and learned all he could in the hotel business and worked his way up in the industry. He took many jobs in Spain, Germany, England, Switzerland, Canada, United States and the Caribbean.
He exemplified the true meaning of a gentleman and was determined to make his mark as a Hotelier in the Dominican Republic and remains a prominate and well respected figure in the Hospitality Industry.
In his leisure time, Anthony loved listening to classical music, collecting movies, gardening, painting, watching futbol, bullfighting and attending Las Fallas in Spain. He was close to his sister despite the miles and felt his greatest accomplishment was his children. He was a proud abuelo and papa to his grandchildren. He will be unforgettable to all that knew him and will be greatly missed.

Tony was a loving grandfather to our granddaughters, Isabella and Alessandra. We were thankful that he was 'Papa' to the girls since we live too far away to be in their daily lives in person. He also was a wonderful 'father' to our daughter. We were glad to call him our friend. It is with great sadness that we share the grief of his passing with his family. He was a true gentleman, with quiet dignity and charming manners, and he will be greatly missed. May we all treasure the wonderful memories we have of him in our lives.
