After graduating he accepted a call from the Hill City South Dakota Assembly of God Church where he ministered for the next 12 years seeing the church grow from about 12 members to over 100 members and building a new church building.

Later, he was employed by Heartland Hospital in Nevada as a mental health worker, rising to the position of C.O.O. and did marketing.

In April 2001 he was employed by Freeman Hospital as Administrator of Turnaround Ranch in Joplin serving there until his employment at Ozark Center in Joplin where he was responsible for construction and remodeling of several office and service structures.

Tony was a voracious reader, a fan and collector of Civil War Artifacts. He was also an accomplished artist. He became a very skillful carpenter and wood worker over the years.

Tony was a very pleasant man who loved his family dearly and was so very proud of them all, and was especially proud of his wife and daughters who are all registered nurses with one becoming a nurse practitioner.
