    Norma Chuck and Savannah, I’m so very sorry for Your loss of Tony’s passing. He gave a life long battle and in all accounts he did have some quality of life, child, grandchild and a lot of normal things we all cherish that his health issues never could rob from him. I have many many great memories of being with Tony I will always hold dear. My prayers are with you all and Tony. I’m sure he had a straight shot North, he deserved it!

    Please accept my families sincerest condolences. Tony was truly one of a kind. I never saw him without a smile on his face. He treated people with respect and courtesy. He was especially a great friend to my ex husband, Coy. They worked together for many years and enjoyed each other’s company often. We all will truly miss him. We want to extend special prayers to his beloved daughter and granddaughter whom he loved so much. Heaven has gained an angel.
