After receiving his honorable discharge, he moved his family to California to complete his education and become a Master Machinist. In 1978, he and his family moved back to Texas where he began working as a Master Machinist for Linco Electromatic until he retired. Tony served as a deacon and an elder for Christian Church of Midland for many years. He was devout in his faith, and a loving man of God. He was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was a kind gentle soul loved by all. He cherished and was devoted to all his family and friends. He loved his bible; teaching and preaching was his passion.
