Antonio was proceeded in death by one of his favorite cousins Kirsheika Turner & her daughter Lanyah.

      It was at an early age Antonio with his siblings and cousins were baptized at the Brandon View MBC (God’s House of Restoration) where he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. Known to most as just “Tony” or one of his other many nicknames; Breeze, Cheese, RackedUp, Tony Breeze and The General was educated in the Rutherford County school system and graduated from Riverdale High School in 2008. While in school, Tony played football and was a member of many student body clubs and activities. You could always count on Tony to be the one that would encourage and help his classmates anyway that he could. Tony and his most contagious smile and those big brown eyes could light up any room he entered. Tony most enjoyed spending time with his daughter “T.T.”, Nieces, Nephews and of course fighting with his brothers as well as Sheika & Quitta! Tony was a part of extended family of friends;

Howard, Millwood, Code Red, B. Howard & Snatch; They called themselves “The Team” and anytime The Team got together jokes, arguments, rap battles and a good time were bound to happen. And after Tony’s hot-headed personality got in the way, it would only be a matter of time before they too were fighting. Then they would just smile look at each other and say “It’s Funny!” Tony Loved football, whether he was overwhelmed with joy cheering on Alabama (ROLL TIDE) or nearly crying in pain from the multiple upsets by the Tennessee Titans, Tony was a die-hard fan until the end! To know Tony was to truly love him. He was a 1 of kind genuinely good hearted person whose life will be cherished by all those he came in contact with!
