Tony Guarino Orders Customized Bowling Ball Urn For His Ashes

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

Company official Mike Stewart says Storm was "honored" by the request and has since delivered the ball.

Guarino, of Wilkins Township, is an avid bowler whose only perfect, 300 game was bowled using a Storm ball. But he can no longer bowl because his terminal prostate cancer has spread to his lower back and pelvis.

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.
