Anthony James Madison, age 33, of Minneapolis passed away on Thursday, January 3, 2019. He was born on December 27, 1985 in Minneapolis the son of Angel and Wanita Madison. Anthony was employed as an exterior/interior decorator.
How can someone describe such a man? Tony was a man who appreciated many things in life. Food, travel, cooking, music, fishing, and being part of any new experiences. At the center of all that was two key factors, friends and his family. With that being said, he was that kind of guy who could pick up a conversation with people like it never ended and it could have been years in between.
Tony appreciated the value of family and putting it first. He was a spiritual man and a lover of Jehoveh God. His values of justice and doing things that were right were important to him, no matter the cost. He always kept that at the forefront of his decisions. That may mean at times he would go against the grain, but you always knew where he stood on those matters. Tony left his mark with his family and his friends by how he touched each and every one of our lives and the memories he gave us. In the end that is what was most important to him and what he would wish us to remember him by.
He lived life to the fullest. He did it with class and he did it with style. We will always miss him and the many memories that we could have made with him were taken away too soon.
Let’s continue to cherish him and take comfort in the laughter, memories and stories we have with our beloved Anthony James Madison “Tone G”. We Love You!
