As a young child Tony’s magnetic smile, infectious laugh, and unwavering spirit manifested throughout his life. Growing up in Central Park Black he was a youth league football and baseball star, he relentlessly excelled and loved everything he did from sports to music. Black was loyal and loved his family more than anything, he kept that same love and loyalty to his childhood friends who were also like family to him. Tony graduated from Crossland High School in Temple Hill, MD.  His greatest joy was becoming a dad to his daughter, the love of his life, Quaneisha.


Tony enjoyed a rewarding career as a Plumbing.  His work ethic and passion for his trade resulted with him running a lucrative business doing what he loved best.
