Tony worked for Jan Tran in Rosedale for 8 years before his illness began in 2016. He loved working on the river and could always find peace there. Tony was a hard-working, selfless, and giving man of God. He loved his family with his whole soul, especially his children. He fought to live and to care for them as long and as hard as he could. He will truly be missed here on this earth, but we know he is no longer in pain. He has now been made whole, and this gives us peace. The Lord Jesus has been so good to us and has truly guided his departure.
Memorial services will be held at his home church H.O.P.E (located at 201 S Bolivar Ave, Cleveland, MS 38732) on Sunday, January 5, 2020, at 2:00 PM. Officiating is Brother Crockett Kennedy his pastor that has not left his side.
