Tony was an member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a lifelong resident of Carbon County and a graduate of Carbon High School. Tony was larger than life to his family, and he always had a smile on his face and love in his heart. He never saw obstacles in life, he just found different ways of getting around them.
When Tony turned 18 he got a job and moved into his own apartment in Price where lived until a couple months ago. Everyone always looked forward to their first car, but for Tony his came a little later in life. His had four wheels, red in color, and it gave him the freedom to go where ever he wanted to.
Family and friends meant everything to him, and his scooter allowed him to travel and visit with everyone. His endeavors may have seemed impossible to many, but for Tony it was just another day and his rewards were the friendships he made along the way.
