He was always giving to others and helped raise many other children that came to stay at his home. Tony went to work in the oil refinery straight out of high school. He ran and owned his own logging truck for a while until he returned to work for Starcon International in the oil refinery business. Tony fought a courageous battle with cancer for two years and never stopped working up to the day he entered the hospital. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend and will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
