Tony knew the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ as his savior. He would always look forward to Bible Study every Thursday even when his phone was not working he would call his sister Denise to do a three way call to make sure he was included.

He went on to work for U.S. Air in Washington DC for over 14 years and was recognized and received the Care Bear Award for his honesty in returning a customer’s handbag, which she was so grateful to him. Then he continued on to Barber School and became known as the “barber”.
Tony loved all sports, but football was his favorite and his favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys. You better not talk bad about those Cowboys, because he would sure let you have it. Tony had many talents. He was a DJ and was in a band, and he used to sing. He also used to draw. He was really good.
Tony always had jokes and enjoyed hanging out with family and friends. One of his famous sayings was he was the dominologist and no one could defeat him in dominoes.
