In January of 2001 he married Iretta Lathon (née White) after being together for over 20 years up to that point. Prior to his passing Iretta and Tony’s loving relationship spanned 4 decades and as each year passed their bond grew stronger and stronger. Together they enjoyed attending church, watching Ohio State football, and family gatherings.
Tony never met a stranger and had a way of befriending just about everyone he met. Tony enjoyed photography and sharing memories of time spent with family and friends. The highlight of any family gathering was when Tony broke out the pictures and took us all down memory lane reminding us of the good times, we all spent together.
