Tony was a Christian and member of the Assembly of God Church in Sullivan, MO. During his working career he was a self-employed owner/operator of both Tony Young & Son Painting Company and T & T Paving. Tony enjoyed tinkering with motors, lawn mowers and pumps for there wasn’t anything broken that he couldn’t fix. He also enjoyed doing carpentry work around his home. He loved the outdoors and fishing and hunting were two of his favorite hobbies, especially when his son and grandsons went with him. He was a good man that loved his family. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and the many precious memories they created will forever live on in their hearts.
A loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great and great-great-uncle, cousin and treasured friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
