He grew up in Boonville, NC with his sisters Kay and Nan. He graduated from Boonville High School, attended Catawba College where he received his undergraduate degree and then went on to receive his MBA from Wake Forest University. He served 3 years in the U.S. Army Intelligence. Tony worked at Winston-Salem Dental Care for over 25 years and retired as their Director of Finance.
