Tony grew up in Mount Holly, NJ and earned quite a reputation. If you are wondering if you met him, you didn’t—because you would definitely remember. Much to the surprise of many, Tony met his soulmate, settled down (a little), and raised a family. He planted roots in Maple Shade, NJ and Delanco, NJ before finding his true home in the mountains of Virginia. Over the years, he made hundreds of friends, played in a dozen bands, and made countless memories, many that should not be shared until the statute of limitations has expired. In his words, he grew older but never grew up.
Tony was a legend- a hopelessly romantic husband, a loving father, a devoted brother, the world’s greatest Poppy, and one hell-of-a-friend. He enjoyed jam sessions in the basement, dozing off to the sounds of Turner Classic Movies, leaving “just because” love letters around the house, sharing his plethora of trivial knowledge, spending time with his girls, and playing pretend with his grandchildren. He left behind big shoes to fill as well as a garage full of his rummage sale treasures and a handful of DIY projects.
Tony is survived by his wife Dawn of 30 years, daughters Kacie (Dan) Brown, Jessica (Jessica Mullins) Hubbs, and Jaimie (Isaiah Downs) Hubbs; siblings Frank, Rusty (Vicky Collins), and Rose Deaver; grandchildren Vera and Colin, as well as many loving relatives.
