Tony was born on September 6, 1930 at home in Villa Grove, Colorado. When he was in elementary school, the family moved to Aztec, New Mexico. He graduated from Aztec High School in 1949. Upon graduation he entered the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany. When he returned to the states, he devoted his time to contracting work in the construction industry. When he wasn’t working his full time job, he was always helping one of his kids, grandkids, relatives or friends with projects. When he had his children in St. Therese Catholic School, there were always projects that Sister Cornelius would call upon him to do. After retirement, he enjoyed playing the slots at the casino, attending Lobo Basketball and Football games, visiting friends and family. Then when he moved in with Lena and Michael, his favorite pastime was eating out, traveling and being on the go!
