Tony has left behind his siblings Patty Mendenhall (Robert), Arthur King (Irene), Kathy King and Celia King. Most importantly, his legacy continues through daughters Meredith King, Alison Croll (Ben), Sarah Hall (Tristan) , sons

His family and friends are glad he is at peace, but we will miss him very much.
