Tony has lived in many places but he always called Amarillo home. Tony was a lover of the outdoors. The mountains and rivers were his favorite. He lived life in the fast lane. He enjoyed riding his side by side and motorcycles with his numerous friends and family in many beautiful places including the Enchanted Circle NM, Taylor Park CO, Palo Duro Canyon, the Canadian River, Lake Mackenzie and several places in Arizona. He was a lover of water sports and snow skiing. He was always in search of the “perfect rock” in his travels. Tony was a great jokester, he always had a smile on his face and laughter in his heart. All of his adventures included great food! His favorites were Guadalajara Cafe and Outback Pizza in Taos NM, Aylin’s
Cafe in Tulia TX and the Skillet in Las Vegas New Mexico. Tony loved animals, he would find every zoo within a 50 mile radius of wherever he was. Tony enjoyed woodworking and building many beautiful and unique homes. He was never still. He made friends everywhere he went. Tony was the life of the party. His love of friends, family and fun was his core. He taught his kids to laugh and love everyone. His message to all was to get outside in the sunshine and enjoy life. He will be missed greatly.
