Anthony Dewayne Swaney was born on May 30th, 1990 and although The Swaney Family thought they were having a baby girl, they were blessed with a baby boy. Tony, as many people would end up calling him, grew up to be a loving son, brother, grand son, nephew, cousin, husband, and father.
Tony was a loving and caring friend and would give you the shirt off of his back.
Tony had struggles in life, like everyone else, but he always tried to make the best of every situation.
Some of Tony's hobbies included fishing with his Uncle Curtis, gold panning with anyone that had the patience to do it with him, checking out women and hollering at them on the side of the road, and spending quality time with family and friends. When Tony loved, he loved hard. Tony was an amazing man and his memory will forever live in our hearts forever.
The death of Tony Swaney was tragic and unanticipated. None of us were ready to say goodbye to the man we all knew and loved. Although his life was cut short, Tony impacted so many lives while he was here on Earth.
I know Tony is looking down on all of us smiling. Tony is an angel now and he walks with Jesus. Rest in Peace Dear Tony.
