Former Lander resident Anton J. "Tony" Radman, 59, of Ogden, Utah, died Monday, March 19, of an arterial blood clot while skiing.
Celebratory mass was Saturday, March 24, at Holy Family Catholic Church in Ogden, Utah. A celebration of his life will also be held in Lander this summer, at a time and place to be announced later.
Anton Joseph Radman Jr. was born April 17, 1952, in Rock Springs to Tony and Linda Radman and shortly thereafter moved with his family to Lander where he grew up.
He attended school at St. Stephen's and Lander Valley High School, and then attended the University of Wyoming from 1970 to 1974 on a skiing scholarship and later on a full ride scholarship from Schlumberger. He graduated summa cum laude with a mechanical engineering degree, reportedly the first student to successfully do so with a 4.0 GPA.
Mr. Radman was recruited by IBM from college and worked in research and development in their general products division.
In September 1974, he married Renee Niethammer of Casper and they spent six years with IBM before resigning to help start Iomega Corporation, where, over the course of nearly 20 years, he held nearly every executive position at the company. Numerous patents are in his name.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Renee; his parents, Linda and Tony Radman Sr.; his two sons, AJ and Shawn; his sisters, Cathi Hollins and her husband Eric, and Mary Sanderson and her husband Mark; many nieces and nephews.
Memorials in Mr. Radman's name may be given to the Catholic Charities or to the Lander Senior Center.
