Services will be Friday, August 11 beginning with visitation at 11 am and funeral service to follow at 1 pm at Bates Memorial Baptist Church, 620 Lampton Street

Antonio  was born November 27, 1958, to Barbara & James E. Smith in Louisville, Kentucky. Both parents preceded him in death.

Tony was a great basketball player. He played for St. Ann’s and the Cabbage Patch. He was a jokester and loved being the life of the party, when he entered the room you would know it. He never met a stranger and had an impact on everyone that he met.
