He loved his dogs, western movies, and singing and playing his guitar. He had a passion for sports, especially baseball and the Denver broncos. If he wasn’t in the back yard barbecuing with a lemon in his hand, you could find him freely driving in his mustang, at a fast speed. He loved to live life! If he was at home, you could be sure to find him in the kitchen making his famous flour tortillas listening to his favorite singer Antonio Aguilar or watching his favorite actor, John Wayne. Tony had many friends in Greeley and the surrounding area, making friends wasn’t hard for him, he would make friends wherever he went. He was known for his great sense of humor and very distinctive laugh. He will truly be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
