TURTLE CREEK, Pa. – A Pittsburgh-area bowling fanatic has gotten a Utah company to fashion a bowling ball urn for his ashes.

Tony Guarino, 48, told KDKA-TV that his wife Stacy called Storm Products Inc. of Brigham City, Utah, when he began wondering if the bowling ball company could make a container.

Company official Mike Stewart said Storm was “honored” by the request and has since delivered the ball.

Guarino, of Wilkins Township, who has terminal prostate cancer, is an avid bowler whose only perfect 300 game was bowled using a Storm ball.

Stacy Guarino says the ball urn won’t be used for bowling — it will go into her husband’s bowling bag along with a ball his father used.
