Tony was a voracious reader and student of history. After high school he studied Philosophy, Economics and History. He earned his bachelor’s in history from the University of Oklahoma in 2008. It was Tony’s dream to write a book.
Tony was a lifelong fan of Superman. When he was small, he would run around with his arms extended, making noises, as if he were flying. When he was older, he enjoyed Superman films and comic book heroes. Not unlike Superman – Tony was kind, intelligent and handsome. He will be dearly missed.
