Tony enjoyed the simple things in life, family, music, sports, shadows from the sun and moon, and sweet tea. He graduated from Bailey School in 1984. He was a charter member of the Special Olympics in Nashville. He also was active in Metro Parks' disABILITIES Program for many years, where he participated in bowling and swimming. He retired from Rochelle Center after 30 years of service. He spent his summer vacations at Camp Richmond with the Bryan family enjoying many outdoor activities. Tony lived at home until the passing of his mother. He then went to live with the Starr family, where he was cared for and loved dearly. His greatest joy was making those around him feel loved and happy, as he was in life.



He was a teacher without a degree.



A special thank you to his MTA Access Ride drivers, friends at Rochelle Center, and his Alive Hospice nurses.
