Anyone who knew Tony knew that he had found the true love story of life with his family. He was so dedicated to Diane, Ally, and Ants and loved them without a doubt. Everything he did was for them! He was truly living the American Dream with his family! The arrival of his granddaughter was icing on the cake. What a proud “Poppy” he was! Anyone who was a friend knew Tony as a man dedicated to his job when at work then dedicated even more to family. They also knew he was never far from his smoker/grill. Tony loved to cook and his family and friends loved to see that pit fired up! You never knew what you were going to get but you knew it would be finger licking good! What a LSU FAN heaven has gained!!
The family would like to thank the EMT personnel and ER staff who tried to help Tony and for your kind words of support. To Shaun Lasyone and the deputies who took Ants aside and spoke to him one on one after he found out that his “HERO” was gone, words cannot express our appreciation and gratitude for your words of support and encouragement to him.
To Tony’s military family we also thank you for helping us through this very difficult time, especially SFC Zander who shared memories of “SKI” with us.
To family and friends who have rallied around us with prayers, food, and kind thoughts thank you so very much.
