    You were the best Dad I could have asked for. You taught me so much in life and helped me become the man I am today. You taught me to never give up and to keep trying to realize my full potential. You had a good heart and had a positive impact on so many people. I am going to miss you
    so much, but I know you are in a better
    place now. May you rest in peace. <3 your son.

    He was my Brother, grwoing up, he was my best freind. I Love him so much. Being 22 months older than me, he always took up for me and watched out for me. I am giong to miss him so much. He could fix anything, and I could call on him anytime for help. I am going to miss him so much. But, I know he is in a better place where there is no sickness, no sorrow, no pain, and no sadness. And Jesus himself will wipe away every tear from our eyes. I will see him again and we will spend quality time together for an eternity at the feet of our Savior Jesus Christ.

    Dustin, you and my son, Danny Baker, grew up playing in the local baseball league together, but mostly on opposing teams. Tony and Danny’s dad, Ed, were rival coaches in the Dixie Youth baseball program in Fairview. Tony was intense about the game, but mostly about you, Dustin. He loved you very much, and I know he was a good father. In recent months, we talked whenever I saw him at church. He talked with me one day about the peace and assurance God has given him that his heart is right. All was well with his soul, I know that. I will long regret that I did not go to see him before he passed away. I am very sorry your family is facing this deep loss.

    I worked with Tony at genesco for several years. I’ve received several inquiries from fellow employees expressing their surprise, regrets and desire to know what happened to him. We did not learn of Tony’s passing until several days after the fact. We are sincerely sorry to learn of his passing. Most Sincerely, Jim Hardin Mgr. Genesco Printing 352-2397
