Tony received his formal education in Albemarle County Schools. Graduated Albemarle High School Class of 1985. He was employed with the City of Charlottesville for the past 4 years as a Maintenance Worker III.

Tony loved spending time with family and friends. He had a special connection with all children he came in contact with. He was a gentle giant that touched everyone's heart. Even when he called you " Knuckle Head"," Chicken Head", " Chump" and "Bum" it was always received with love even when he grabbed you on the back of your neck with his heavy hands. Besides spending time with family Tony was an avid motorcycle rider. He loved to meet up with his fellow bikers to cruise the streets of Charlottesville as well as the surrounding counties. When he wasn't riding his bike he enjoyed playing poker, spades, chess, horseshoes, and corn-hole. He also enjoyed his weekly dinners with the fellas. Tony was well-loved and will be missed by all.

I have worked with Tony for about a year or so and loved the fact that even when a miserable day was ahead of you , it was going to be full of jokes and laughs. His words will always be talked about at work, Funny sayings and likable personality. Even though we knew alot of the same people we only had a short friendship but it was one that will be always be remembered. Prayers and condolences to all of Tony's family and friends. May god and family embrace you on your next journey. Ride free my friend.
