Cigar Aficionado spoke with Fontana last week on his birthday. "The cigar industry will never, ever die," he said. "It's been going through a lot, but it's never going to fail."
Fontana is survived by five children; Bonnie, John, Jim, Robert, and David; and 17 grandchildren. His son Stephen died in 1993, and his wife, Connie, died on his birthday in 2005.
A viewing for Fontana will be held on February 11 at Taylor & Modeen Funeral Home in Jupiter, Florida, with funeral services the following day at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Palm Beach Gardens.
