Tony's passion was his wife and family, creating art and teaching others, reading to his grandchildren, and building things with his hands. He was a professional artist with a degree from Bristol Art College in England. He came to the United States after seeing the Beatles on the TV exploring the States. He travelled to the US in 1976 and hitchhiked until he came across his first job in America painting fair rides for a traveling amusement park, which brought him to meet Marilyn. Some time after his visit to Kentucky and meeting his future Wife he returned from England to pursue a life with her.
