Tony was born on October 15, 1955 in Coleman, Texas to Thomas Bertrum Heiser and Carol Marlene Mitchell. He married Louisa "Shelly" Boyd on June 18, 1990 in Abilene, Texas. Tony was a professional welder his entire life. He worked for the City of Abilene Water Department for 14 years. He then moved with Shelly to "The Land" after building their home. Tony enjoyed his time serving his community as a volunteer fireman with the Novice Volunteer Fire Department.
Tony thoroughly enjoyed hunting, welding, cooking on his pit, foosball, cornhole, and spending time aggravating his family. Tony's true passion in life was loving, spending time with and taking care of Shelly. She was the love of his life. Tony was a great Father and Grandfather who always had a listening ear, a witty response and wasn't afraid to use tough love when he felt it was necessary. Tony was a prideful, hardworking man who did not like asking anyone for help.
