Mr. Anthony 'Tony' E. Hughes, age 60, of Acworth, GA., passed away on Thursday, July 20, 2017 surrounded by his loving family. Tony was born on November 4, 1956 in Marietta, Georgia, a son to Carl E. Hughes and Glynda Byrd Hughes.
Tony retired from General Motors Automotive Co. after thirty-one years of dedicated service. He worked in numerous divisions of GM. Though Tony was retired, he never stopped working, from taking on part-time jobs to doing odd and end construction projects. He most recently worked as a maintenance technician for CBRE. If Tony wasn't working, he could easily be found doing one of two things, spending time with this family or fishing. Tony loved to fish, and especially enjoyed the countless memories made in the boat with his family and friends. Tony's personality was incredibly contagious, always being the life of the party and being a friend to everyone he met. He loved playing his guitar and singing any genre of music with friends and family by his side. The Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs undoubtedly always carried his support. Though all of his work, hobbies, and passions brought him great joy, spending time with his children and grandchildren was by far his happiest and most cherished moments. Tony was a wonderful son, father, grandfather, and friend; he will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Tony is preceded in death by his father, Carl E. Hughes.
Along with his mother, Glynda Hughes, Tony is survived by his three children, Dustin Hughes,wife Melodie, Kristen Moran, husband Josh, and Paige Whitehouse, husband Neil; five grandchildren, Clara, Caleb, Matthew, Francesca, and Teddy; three siblings, Mike Hughes, Jeff Hughes, and Carletta Woodall; several nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends also survive.
