August 17, 1984 — July 19, 2021

Tony was born on August 17, 1984, to Lisa Melton. He grew up in Davis, Oklahoma graduating from Davis High School in 2003. After high school he lived in Sulphur, Oklahoma with his parents, Lisa and Jim Garrison. In recent years, Tony lived in Ardmore, Oklahoma with his girlfriend, Toni Gothard.
He worked for the United States Postal Service in Ardmore.

Tony was a voracious reader and student of history. After high school he studied Philosophy, Economics and History. He earned his bachelor’s in history from the University of Oklahoma in 2008. It was Tony’s dream to write a book.

Tony was a lifelong fan of Superman. When he was small, he would run around with his arms extended, making noises, as if he were flying. When he was older, he enjoyed Superman films and comic book heroes. Not unlike Superman – Tony was kind, intelligent and handsome. He will be dearly missed.
