Obituary

    Mr. Anton E. Kihyet II passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at a local hospital.  Born November 4, 1938 in Pascagoula, MS to the late Tofie and Melena Ladnier Kihyet, he had been a lifelong resident of Pascagoula.  Anton was a graduate of Our Lady of Victories Catholic High School.  Following graduation, he entered the apprentice program at Ingall’s Shipbuilding and was quickly promoted to the tool room.  He spent his entire career working second shift and retired after 36 years.  He was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church and a very kind man.  He often helped those he felt were in need.  Anton became a Pascagoula icon when he became the voice of Bozo’s Seafood Market.  All it took was one clear, distinctive, sharp word “Bozo’s” and you knew who you had on the line and you had better be ready to order, because he was busy.  Anton loved working at Bozo’s, and everyone loved him.  He will be deeply missed by all of us.

    In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his stepmother Mrs. Norma B. Kihyet, whom he loved and cared for until her death.

    Left to cherish his memory are his brother Walter Lee Pol and his wife Dolores of Pascagoula, MS; step-brothers, Alton Sacka (Deborah) adn Robert H. "Bobby" Hudspeth, Jr.; nephews Michael Pol, David Pol; niece Deanna Pol Sanders; his longtime friends Keith Delcambre, Sherri Thornton, Father Tom Fanning and the entire community. 

    Due to the current pandemic, a private burial has taken place.  We will celebrate Anton and his life in the very near future.  Details for the celebration will be made available as soon as possible.
