Tony proudly served in the United States Army and Air Force as a Gun Crewman and Radio Radar Tech. He served in the Korean War where he was awarded the Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Good Conduct Medal. Tony enjoyed working on electronics. He was an avid Razorback fan and enjoyed playing jokes on his family. Upon discharge from the Air Force, Tony went to work at Lockheed and some of his work actually went to space. He was given an opportunity to own a printing company, so Tony left Lockheed and opened A-1 Printing company in Fullerton, California. Tony worked very hard and was successful in this venture for over fifty years.
