Longtime Westporter Anthony F. Slez Dies at 84

Longtime Westporter Anthony F. Slez Sr. died Monday in Norwalk Hospital. Slez, who had been in declining health in recent years, was 84.

A veteran of World War II, Slez was a standout athlete at Staples High School, where he won 15 varsity letters. He held several school records in track and was captain of the 1937 state championship basketball team.

Slez operated Slez Garage, formerly known as Slez-Benos Garage and Service Station, with his brother-in-law Art Benos for many years at 791 Post Road East, near the intersection of Long Lots Road (now Westport Car Wash). Friends remember him as saying, We didnӒt have customers, we had friends.

Survivors include son Tony Slez Jr., daughter-in-law Peggy, a member of the Representative Town Meeting, brother Bernardin and grandson Adam.

Services are scheduled Thursday, April 10, at 10 a.m. at St. Luke Church in Westport. Friends may call at the Harding Funeral Home, 210 Post Road East, today from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
