Tony was born , Jan. 20, 1961, in Boise the son of Dwayne and Margaret Mills Welton. He was raised in Meridian, graduating from Meridian High School in 1979. Growing up Tony enjoyed working at his father’s service station and racing cars on the weekend. He began farming, ranching and custom farming in Marsing where he raised his three beautiful children.
Tony was a friendly and outgoing person who made many friends during his life time. He loved to talk and during a meal, he would have to reheat it his plate because his food would get cold while he was telling a story.
Tony’s greatest pride was his children, and he was a devoted father who spent a lot of time with them. Many hours were spent boating, tubing and skiing with his children and coaching their basketball teams. He also had a very close relationship with his parents and was always there to lend a hand. Many trips were enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. His dad, brother and he were avid trap-shooters and spent many weekends at local gun clubs competing for the prize. He was a member of Deer Flat Free Methodist Church. Tony will be greatly missed.
