A little bit to know about our beloved Tony Barrow.
-Tony had many names, some we called him, some he earned from total strangers that he made smile along the way… Tony B, Tony-Tony, Tone-Tone, Tony the man, BrerBear, and many others, but the best ones of all was Dad, PaPa, brother, son, and GrandTony.
-Tony was a caring man, who was always willing to lend a helping hand
-Tony was typically a quiet man, but would definitely tell you how he felt on any subject, even if you didn’t like his opinion
-Tony had a great sense of humor that was always accompanied by a funny facial expression
-Tony liked to dance and believe it or not, he could hum or sing a song quite well!
-Tony loved to go fishing, and occasionally leave a boat motor in the river!
-Tony Served in the U.S. Navy
-Tony Served as a Police Officer
-Tony drove the Big Brown truck for 30 years!
-Tony was in the Crestview High School Band, and he played the trumpet
-Tony could out run most of us, at the age of 70!
This list could go on an on…
One of our favorite things about him was that if you needed a buddy to jump in the truck and go do something, Tony was ready!
We know Tony touched a lot of people’s hearts over the years, but it’s not surprising because he had a heart of gold himself!
We will miss you Tony, until we meet again, keep the lines wet for us up there in heaven!
