Anton Babnik

Born in SentVid, Slovenia, Anton's normal youth was upended by WWII. As a Displaced Person, he came to the USA in 1949 and settled in New York City. Anton’s career in stainless steel fabrication was augmented by his work for Slovenian-American fraternal and Catholic parish organizations. By the time of his death (cancer) at Holy Comforter Field Home in his 96th year, his marriage spawned a family of 85 members.
