J Antonio was born on July 20, 1928 in Trujillo, Peru to Daniel and Susana Gutierrez. He graduated from San Marcos Medical School in Lima, Peru with a Doctorate of Medicine. He came to the US in 1958 and did his training in Jacksonville, NY and Boston before returning to Peru in 1961 to marry Maria Rocchetti. The newlyweds moved to the US where he completed his residency and they welcomed two sons and a daughter. He finally settled in Virginia where he established his private practice in McLean as an Internist with a specialty in Gastroenterology and his youngest son was born. His undeniable commitment and devotion to his patients was his greatest passion, second only to his family. He retired in 1999 and moved from his home in Oakton, VA to Coral Springs, Fl where he remained until his death. The couple welcomed 4 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. His family remembers him as a loving husband, a kind and patient father and a wonderful Nonno who encouraged them to dream big and pursue their goals.

Jose Antonio loved to sing and would often sing at parties and to his lovely wife, Maru. He was a witty individual who always had a mischievous smile and loved to play jokes especially during canasta tournaments with family and friends. He was passionate about his soccer and basketball. He enjoyed coaching his children and watching his beloved Peruvian soccer team and the Boston Celtics on TV. Above all else, he loved being with his family . . . especially his grandchildren whom he would say “You love them double since they are your children’s children”.

Tony was a phenomenal doctor and an even better friend. He could embrace people into his family of friends in a way that was unparalleled. My wife met her best friend while working for him and our two families have remained close along with Tony and Maru for over 42 years. Many, many memories of parties and late night dancing with Tony adding the singing sound track. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gutierrez family.
