Eberle Design, Inc. Announces the Passing of Tony Eberle



CASA GRANDE, Arizona – Anthony (Tony) F. Eberle, 69, passed away on December 8,

2019 at his home in Casa Grande. Mr. Eberle, was born on September 16, 1950, in Casa Grande to Anton (Tony) and Virginia Eberle. He attended St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School, graduated from Casa Grande Union High School and earned a Bachelor’s Degree

in Electronics from Arizona State University. Tony had a natural aptitude for electronics,

which was fostered by his High School teacher, Charlie Staats. Tony began his working

career while in high school at Deno’s Music Center. His engineering skills and keen business sense afforded Tony a varied career that encompassed music, mining, aerospace and the traffic control electronics industries.
For thirty years, he ran the manufacturing side of Eberle Design, Inc., (EDI), guiding the company from a two-man operation, (along with his brother Terry), with electronics assembly beginning on the living room coffee table, to a global market-leading manufacturing firm, that provides mission-critical motorist and pedestrian safety monitoring devices at more than 95 percent of all signalized intersections in the United States and Canada. Mr. Eberle served as the company’s Vice President-Manufacturing, from the time of the company’s founding in January 1980, until it was purchased by a private equity firm in 2010, at which time he retired. Tony’s efforts while at EDI, no doubt saved the lives of many motorists.
Tony loved to fly and earned his private pilot’s license while attending ASU, as an incentive

for completing his degree. Later on, he discovered the thrill of helicopter flight and thoroughly enjoyed flying his “aerial jeep.” He had a passion for collections; cars, of which there were many, radios, watches, art glass and life-long friendships. He loved to explore the back roads of Arizona and traveling across country by train and automobile. Tony especially loved sharing these adventures with his family.
He is survived by his wife, Sue Eberle of Casa Grande, his children Crel Vogel, Nathan Vogel, Eric Eberle and Kathryn Eberle-Sero, and five grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 10:00 AM, Saturday December 14, 2019 at The Gardens Chapel – J. Warren Funeral Services – 525 North Peart Road, Casa Grande, AZ 85122
