He had the voice of an angel, and he was always the life of the party. He inspired fun and good times wherever he went and always had a smile on his face. He always encouraged everyone, striving to try and make everyone feel as best as they could. He never said a critical or condescending word about anyone, and would always try and find the good in everybody. No matter what physical pain or struggle he was having, he always remained happy and loving. He was an angel on earth and touched numerous lives. He will be sincerely missed by all those who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, as well as his infant sister, Tracy. He is also preceded in death by his sister-in-law, Deborah Henderson.

I remember Tony well. I remember once at Sprayberry I was feeling down and kind of depressed. Tony lifted my spirits. Always had a smile on his face. I thought of him often through the years. Fly high Tony. You've certainly earned your wings.

Uncle Tony,

I’ll always remember you as the jovial, laughing man who who let me and my brother climb all over his chest and face when we were babies. Thank you for trusting me to write “True Love” on your hands in the hospital. You’re lucky I spelled it right lol. Say hi to Memaw, Papa, and Mom for me.

Love, Jennifer

I remember meeting Big T like it was yesterday but 20 years later, I still smile when I think of him and Carol. They quickly became very dear to me. I moved away from GA but anytime I came to town, I always had to make sure that karaoke 🎤 with Big T and Carol was part of my trip. I had not seen T in a long time but he and I on occasion would drop a line on each others FB page to say hello. Every time I hear “My Best Friend” by Tim McGraw I think of Big T singing it to his love Carol. He will be missed from this Earth by so many but NEVER FORGOTTEN!!

My earliest memories of Tony Queen and his brothers centered around early Sunday bus rides on the blue & white, Shiloh Hills Baptist Church buses that rolled into our neighborhoods. Beeping the horn and waiting for us to climb aboard. It was in those early years the lives of us boys changed forever because of a lot of men whom continued pouring a Godly example into our young lives. Most of those men are now gone, Tony can now reconnect with them and our Savior. May God richly Bless your family until we see you again! With much Love, Ray

Oh my goodness where to start? Lol! I will never forget the day you proposed to me! We laughed about it just a couple of weeks ago, arguing about my age at the time. You say 16 and I say 14/15 so you finally gave in to say “ well ok you may have been 15 “ LOL!!! We also had our own karaoke show in your room there at the hospice. We sang our song one last time “ Let me be there “. I will cherish that memory always! That was one of the best days I have had in a long time and it’s because you were being you and made me laugh and smile!!! I could go on but you already know all of it lol. I will think of you often my friend and know that you are singing with the Angels now! ❤️ I love you!!
