FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS, October 27, 1955 - The death of Tony Padilla, 44, guide and fisherman, whose body was found floating in the Gulf off Boca Grande Tuesday, was attributed by authorities yesterday to drowning. Dr. Herbert Wilson, after an autopsy, said marks on Padilla's legs apparently were made by his striking the side of the boat in which he left the docks on Gasparilla Island about 6 p.m. Monday. Padilla went fishing alone. The boat washed up on Gasparilla, and the body was discovered Tuesday afternoon by a Coast Guard helicopter from St. Petersburg.

October 28, 1955 - Funeral services for Antonio Laurence (Tony) Padilla, 44, of Boca Grande, will be at 2 p.m. today from St. Luke's Episcopal Church with Rev. Richard I. Brown, rector, officiating. Interment at Fort Myers Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Brad Bylaska, Ted Bylaska, Sam Whidden, Louis Zinsser, Ray Futch, Coram Lanier, Lonnie Futch and John Knight. Funeral arrangements by Young-Harvey, funeral directors.
