In the early afternoon of Monday, November 13, 2023, Antonio Aleman, went to be with the Lord. Tony was born on April 11, 1963, in Slaton, Texas to the late Gudalupe Sr. and Virginia Aleman. The loving grandparents of Tony, Leonardo and Luz Aleman had an everlasting impact on his life.
Tony’s journey throughout life was one filled with dedication, perseverance, and wholeheartedness. After graduating from Tahoka High School in 1981, Tony embarked on a prosperous career. From a young age Tony was a very diligent worker, which carried over into his adult life. Tony became a long-tenured worker for the McWhorter Tire Company, Southern Tire Mart, and Pete’s Tire and Service. “T-Bone” dedicated his life skills and expertise to these businesses.
Outside of his professional life, Tony had a passionate and doughty spirit. He enjoyed spending time with his loved ones. Being a brother brought him strength, being a father brought him direction, and being a grandpa brought him gratitude. His grandchildren Malarie, Xylie, Mauracio, and Penelope will forever hold a special place in his heart. Tony always doted each one with immense love, joy, and happiness, creating everlasting memories with them.
Tony was also an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers. He would often be found cheering them on, displaying unwavering support for his two favorite teams. Sports are all about passion and excitement, and Tony knew how to enjoy each game to the max. Additionally, Tony developed a deep love for all of his gallos. His gallos were incredibly beautiful birds with the colors in their feathers ranging in extraordinary variance.
Tony will forever be missed by all who knew and loved him.
