Our deepest condolences. We met Tony when he brought Tracen to our son Rylan’s birthday party. He was so nice to talk to and every time we passed at daycare he always had a smile on his face. May your family continue to heal with God’s love. The Shelly Family

My heart breaks for Tony’s family.  I have many fond memories from school and FFA with Tony.  Our trip to nationals would not have been the memorable event that it was with out him. God bless you all thru this time,  Tony was always such an awesome guy, and I am glad to have known him.
