He was a home delivery milkman for Cass Clay Creamery for 38 years, retiring in December, 1981. He loved his job, especially visiting with his customers and the kids on his route.
On June 13, 1944 Tony married Anna Janousek at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Waubun, MN. They celebrated 66 years of marriage before her death in November, 2010.
Dad loved John Deere tractors, new cars and tinkering, lots of tinkering.
