Tony was known as the “Bait Man”. Tony made and hand-painted baits and fishing lures. He was an avid painter and hunter and his greatest joy was homeschooling his children. He loved to garden and raise chickens. He enjoyed family time with his wife and children. If Tony were talking to a friend, everyone was called “Bubba”.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Tony to an account established for his children at Alabama One Credit Union. Our family would like to express our appreciation to the physicians and nursing staff of both Northwest Medical Center and UAB MICU. Until your family sees you again, we know you are “Gone Fishing”.
