Oxley Heard Funeral Home

June 1, 2022

A Note:  During the 1950s and 60s, the good old days for shrimpers, the Tringali brothers worked together to bring in boatloads of shrimp.   Many old-timers will recognize their white and green building still standing on North Front Street.  Our condolences to the Tringali family on the death of Tony. 


Anthony J. (Tony) Tringali, 93 born in Fernandina Beach on 12-20-1928, died Saturday, May 28, 2022 at Fernandina Beach Rehab & Nursing Center.
