Anthony ‘Tone Bone’ Walker Sr. was born on February 29, 1968, in Neptune, NJ to Brenda and Ronald Walker. With grace and peace, Tony went on to be with the Lord on July 15, 2023, surrounded by loved ones.

Tony grew up in Lakewood, NJ. After high school he attended St. Peter’s University where he earned his Bachelors in Business Administration. He played semi-pro basketball in Germany for a brief time before beginning his entrepreneurship.

Amongst being a father of a big, blended family, he had many business ventures over the years. Three Gems Entertainment; named after his three oldest children, Bellissimo, & World Won Records to name a few. He has also received Hall of Fame inductions at Lakewood High School and St. Peter’s University for his outstanding performance and breaking records in basketball. Amongst being a businessman, he worked as a paraprofessional in the Lakewood School District as well as a basketball coach for Lakewood High School and Ocean County College.

In his own words, “I am not a man of major words, but a man of action.” When business needed to be taken care of or things needed to be done, it was done. Tony wasn’t that much of a talker in a crowd but when comfortable with loved ones he had a sense of humor out of this world.

He is predeceased by his grandmother Ethel, his father Ronald, and his granddaughter Halo.

Tony leaves to cherish his memories mother Brenda; his brothers Ronald and Thomas, his children Shakira, Anthony, Shavonne, Amir, Amare, and Aidyn; his grandchildren Mark Jr, Anthony Jr, Prince, West, Kingston, Karter, and Mila; as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends that will miss him dearly.

    Tony was always a stand-up, good guy who always helped the “other guy” when I knew him at SPU. He provided so many great memories and will be missed by the Peacock community. God bless.

    To the Walker family, including children, grandchildren, mates, and mother. I will feel that void of Tony (Ton Ton to his aunts and uncles) forever because he’s no longer with us physically. But I will not miss his love. That we will always have and nothing or no one can take that. When he was born God gave that to us. So, though I physically can’t talk to him spiritually we’ll always have those memories that he made with the family. And so if We can’t have him physically we’ll take his spiritualness with the memories he so lovingly gave to us knowing in that day we would not have him physically he’d be with us spiritually. Brenda, Ronnie thank you for allowing us to share life with Tone Tone. Nephew you’re gone but you will never ever be forgotten! Love your Aunt Linda.❤️❤️=♥️

    A life long friend that never had anything bad to say about anyone. We spent years playing together when he was living in long branch but did weekends at his grandmom’s in lakewood before moving to lakewood . Tony grew physically to 6’6 where i didn’t stopping at 6’3 so that was the only thing i disliked…lmao…He became a very good basketball player going all county and all shore then excelling in college at St. Peter’s but still he never ragged to anyone. Even when i went through sports burnout and people were putting me down for leaving college he never judged me. Ironically he never pushed his sons,because of my experience with a parent pushing me too much he gave the boys a choice and i was in their lives giving tips to them with Tony. He was a guy that had a dream and took chances like he did we the music studio. He was a great parent, excuse my was cause his soul is alive and well. Years later we found out we’re cousins as my grandmother dot crippen’s maiden is Walker and was going to the same family reunion in South Carolina. I hope i make it to the memorial today, if i don’t please forgive me….your friend for life, our friendship was more than backyard basketball. The community will be there well after this day to make sure your kids have someone there , obviously it won’t be your impact but we will be there knowing your spirit is with us.. Much love and memories Tony “skywalker” Walker….love Mike Boom Richardson McNeil
