Tony was raised in the Babb and St. Mary's area along with his brothers and sisters. He attended school in Babb and Browning, graduating in 1985. Tony worked as a wrecker driver for Jim Jay, a cook for Park Cafe, a bartender, a long-haul truck driver and logged for several years in Oregon. He moved to Great Falls for medical reasons. He was active in the Vineyard Church of Great Falls. Tony had a natural talent in auto repair and auto body. He enjoyed fire fighting, taking hikes in the mountains and spending time with his family.
