KHABBAZ, ANTOINE "TONY" 87 Born in Lebanon, one of 10 children. Antoine worked with his father and sister at the American Embassy. In his 20's he immigrated to the United States and became a citizen. Shortly after, he met Nina and proclaimed "love at first sight!" Tony and Nina were married and moved to Hawthorne in 1953. There they raised their two daughters Linda and Diane. Antoine worked as a traffic manager for Bedford Freight Lines. "Tony" as his friends know him, had a great passion for getting together with family and friends. He loved photography and took pictures at every occasion. In 1983 he and Nina rejoiced at the birth of their precious granddaughter Elaina. In 2003 they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Tony considered himself a very blessed man and thanked God for the life he lived. A memorial celebration will be held at Rice Mortuary in Torrance (310-792-7599) on Saturday Feb. 10th at 10am. Burial will be private.
