Hi I'm Tony

I'm an Active Mormon, Bishop, Scout Supporter, Harley Riding, Entrepreneur, Family Man.

About Me

I was brought up living in many areas. We were not a military family but we lived like one for the first years of my life. We started in Utah and then at age 9 we lived in the Panama Canal Zone for three years. Two years in Great Falls Montana before moving back to Utah. At age 15 we were settled in our hometown in Utah. After graduation I worked for a year for an alarm company and then was called to serve a mission in Lisbon Portugal. After returning and marring my high school sweetheart we started our family in Southern California. I was working for a security manufacturing company and traveling the world. With the "gipsy" blood from my youth we had the opportunity to move to DC area, then to Utah for 18 months, Cincinnati OH, and back to the DC area where we currently live. I enjoy scuba diving, golf, shooting sports, hunting, boating, camping, outdoors, fixing things, travel, family activities and my freinds. One of my sayings is WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) I am pretty much straight forward.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to 'Goodly Parents" who taught me in my youth to follow the Prophet and strive to be like Jesus. As I now teach my own children I see wisdom in the LDS church programs to strengthen families such as, Scouting, For the Strength of Youth, Sunday School, Young Women and Aaronic Priesthood.

How I live my faith

A drink from the Living Water on a regular basis is a good start. Having a celestial marriage and wonderful wife helps keep me on track. I try to follow the Savior and DO unto others as I would want them to do unto me. Finding way to serve my neighbors and be kind to all helps me reflect the love I feel from God.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

To be happy or have Joy! I have been asked why I am so happy all the time. It comes from a deep knowledge that if I do what is right then I will be blessed. I have been blessed so much in my life, with health, safety, wealth, and happiness it is almost too much to comprehend. Of course there are the times in life when things are not all roses, but they are there to test me, give me strength and provide learning. I know Heavenly Father is watching out for me and he blesses me each day. If I can live here to the best of my ability and participate in saving ordinances then through the power of the Atonement I can return to live with my Family and Savior again. Show more Show less
