OBITUARY

Tony Lee Cayot

June 1, 1952October 8, 2021

Tony Cayot, age 69, passed away peacefully in his sleep on October 8th, 2021 at Grey Stone Nursing Home in Fort Wayne, IN.

He was the proud father of two children - Brett (wife, Belinda) of Fort Collins, CO and Stephanie (husband, John) of Bloomington, IN. From Stephanie, he had one granddaughter (Benezet) and two step-grandsons (Judah and Jasper).

Tony was preceded in death by his parents, Marion and Manford Cayot, and brothers Ron and Craig. He is survived by his sister, Carla.

Tony was a 1971 graduate of New Haven High School. With a family interest in photography, he went on to become a Nikon certified photographer and worked at McJon camera store. He almost always carried a professional camera and would often ask to take your photo. He later founded Caypin Industries and became a realtor at Century 21 Bradley. He enjoyed spectating and photographing the Indianapolis 500. With a strong will and spirit, his motto was to always smile, which he often did with an unlit cigar.

Visitation for family and friends of Tony will be held at Don Hall’s Gas House in Fort Wayne, IN on Friday, October 15, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please pass along a happy memory of him to his kids.

Tony,
Was always a good friend and would drop anything to help someone. Once when I first moved into a new condo, my furnace was not working. Tony came over in late evening to help get it started. He always had a great sense of humor and always greeted you with a smile! Tony will be dearly missed!

Steph and Bret, so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I always remember he had a smile and a good story. He'll be missed, just remember all the good times and treasure the time you had with him. May the good Lord keep him in his arms, and prayers to both of you. Bob and Cyndi Shippy

Tony was a totally selfless guy. He was always friendly with a good attitude, even after his health was no longer good! Those of us who knew him from the photography he did @ Bunt Realty in the 1970's to Century 21 Bradley, Inc. Our condolences to his son & daughter & granddaughter.
