Antonio (Tony) Morales, Jr. was born in Oakland, California on February 22, 1961. He studied Art at San Jose University CA with major in History and Photography, and Mechanics at ITT Phoenix, AZ. He later served as the Maintenance Manager for Hertz in Las Vegas, Nevada.
While living in Nevada he met and married his wife Adriana. Tony and Adriana later relocated to Oregon, where he developed a passion for quilting and gardening. He especially enjoyed contributing to the Community Garden in Lincoln City.
Tony had a warm, humorous presence. Throughout his life, he was wonderful with children and animals and equally delighted with him. Though he suffered from kidney failure and cancer for the final 13 years of his life, he never let himself get down. His family will remember his strong spirit in the face of this illness.
He is preceded in death by his father Antonio and his mother Martha and survived by his wife Adriana, his brother Adam and his sister Ava, a lot of nieces and nephews, and parents and sisters-in-law.
