Christopher Anthony (Tony) Rasmussen passed away Sunday, December 8, 2013 in Sacramento, CA, three days before his 40th birthday. Tony was born in Lancaster, CA on December 11, 1973 and was raised in Newhall, CA. A graduate of Hart High School, Class of 1992, Tony ran Cross Country and made socializing a varsity sport.

Tony had a passion for life and it showed in all the different careers he chose. He attended L.A. Film School and earned a certificate in Producing in 2003. He worked for several years as a casting director in Los Angeles and also in music production in Santa Monica. In 2010 he attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Pasadena, focusing on restaurant management. He became a restaurant manager in San Francisco during the last three years.

Tony loved to snow ski and had many happy times with his family and friends in Mammoth and Park City, UT.

His sister Lauren said, "Tony was the best big brother anyone could ask for. He made friends everywhere he went and was the life of the party. He lived life to the fullest and there was never a person he met who didn't become his friend."

Tony is survived by his mother Susan of Grass Valley, CA; his father Larry (Peggy) of Newhall, CA; his sister Lauren (Shane) of Truckee, CA; his niece Shiloh, his beloved Chihuahua, Madison, and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins who will miss him greatly.
