Tony was born in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 30, 1955. He later moved to Texas and has had a good life. Tony was a wonderful husband, father, son, grandfather, son-in-law, brother–in-law, employee, and friend. Tony, being responsible and diligent, worked all of his life. He started working at the age of 12 years old, saved his money, and bought a car at age 15. He moved out on his own, kept an apartment, worked a job, and finished high school. His main concern was to provide and care for his family. He was the salt of the earth to all. He touched many, many lives. Our Beloved went to be with God on June 10, 2012, and he will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife, Katherine; three children, Shannon, Brianna, and Hayden; son-in-law, Carl; grandson, Collin; his mother, Lou Ella; mother-in-law, Peggy; two sisters, Lou and Gloria; two brothers, Leroy and Leon; brothers-in-law, Todd, Mike, and James; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.
