Tony was born in 1936 at his Mémère and Pépère Labossière's home. Tony had many fond memories growing up in St. Léon with his siblings and many cousins where teasing and hard-work would go hand in hand. On June 5, 1965 Tony married the love of his life Cécile. Together they raised two children Denise and Martin on a farm outside of Notre Dame de Lourdes. Tony and Cécile moved to town in 1998. He continued to help on the farm during seeding and harvest. As time went on Tony and Cécile could be seen cruising the countryside to check crops or pick up parts.
Tony volunteered his time on the Foyer Notre Dame Board, the Hall and Hockey Committee and helping out at the Agricultural fair.
Tony's favourite pastime was playing snooker. One of his proudest moments was when he won the Championship at the Cartwright Snooker Tournament. He also enjoyed spending time at the coffee shop sharing the latest local "news".
Above all else, Tony loved spending time with family and friends. He especially loved making memories with his 6 grandchildren and more recently with his 2 "petits bonhommes". Tony was a loving husband, Dad and Pépère. He left a lasting impression to all those who knew him.
