Tony’s childhood was spent in Billings until joining the army in December of 1964. He married the love of his life, Ruby Albrecht, on April 16, 1969, in Billings. Together they had two daughters. He had various jobs until moving to Red Lodge in 1978, where he found his calling in law enforcement in 1979. He worked his way up the ranks and retired as Chief of Police in 1999. After retirement, Tony and Ruby moved south for five years before returning home to Montana to be closer to family.
Tony loved fishing, riding motorcycles, golfing, traveling, playing cards, and spending time with family. He was always ready to share an off-colored joke with anyone who would listen, especially his grandsons.
