Married Beda Swanson on January 1, 1933.Worked as a tree cutter, a mold setter, a farmer, a Merchant Marine, and in maintenance for the Los Angeles County School District until his retirement. He also talked about "riding the rails" as he traveled across the country. Tony developed a love for the game of golf and wore out several sets of clubs attempting to learn how to hit the ball straight.

Preceded in death by his parents, brother, and great-grandson, Scotty.
