Tony was born in Hobbs, New Mexico on July 2, 1962 to Michael and Sherrie Bostick.

Tony married Regina Cappelle on July 1, 1989 and they celebrated over 25 wonderful years together. He loved his Gina "Bear", his animals and his family, always being attentive to his elderly grandparents. Tony called his mother every Monday to say "I just love you Mom". He enjoyed spending his time with Gina whether it be just cleaning the house or vacationing. Tony's favorite saying to Gina was "you and I are partners; we are a team babe, I have your six". He loved being an uncle and spending time hunting, fishing, playing games of any type with family, especially with his nieces and nephews. Tony enjoyed grilling for all friends and family as he was most happy when he was giving of himself to show love to others. Tony was a natural gardener and green-thumb; he could always be found in his yard as the earth, soil and living things made Tony happy.
