Killed by gun August 3, 1998, at age 25
Tony was born in Kansas City, Kansas on May 9, 1973. When he was seven-years old, we moved to Torrance, CA. Four years later, we moved to Palos Verdes, CA, where he attended Ridgecrest Middle School and graduated from Peninsula High School in 1992. Tony played ice hockey and wrestled in high school.
Tony was murdered on August 3, 1998, in Harbor City, CA. No motive, and no one has been arrested. Tony was a gentle and kind young man. We can not imagine living without his beautiful smile and kind heart. Our hearts are forever broken. He taught us lessons of the heart. Goodnight, sweet Prince.
