Man with cancer turns 300 bowling ball into urn

WILKINS TOWNSHIP, Pa. —

A Wilkins Township man with stage 4 prostate cancer is planning for the inevitable in a very unique way.

Tony Guarino received his diagnosis four years ago. Now, his love for bowling is part of his dying wish. When the time comes, Tony will use as an urn the ball with which he bowled his only 300 game. The ball was customized so that his wife can place his ashes inside.

“I’ve been bowling for 44 years. When I was 4, my grandfather used to take me up to my uncle’s place,” Tony told Channel 11 News.
