Anthony Walker Sr.
February 29, 1968
~July 15, 2023
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.
