On Feb 5, 1995 he was united in marriage to Traci L. Stricker in Mellen. He was a Lieutenant with the Ashland County Sheriff’s department for almost 30 years. Tony’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his family. The life he built with Traci, raising their children together, and time with his grandkids were all treasured in Tony’s life, as he loved his family very much. Time spent outdoors fishing, hunting and especially playing disc golf with his boys were a few of his many cherished memories. Being at Bear Camp with friends were also some of Tony’s favorite times. Tony was quick to pull up a chair for a game of cards and winning was the ultimate goal. His soft spoken manner, kindness and humor will be greatly missed by many.
