Tony married Reba Ann Copeland in Lawton on July 21, 1972. The young couple had more than 40 years of joy together.

Tony was a Mason of Lodge 183, where he received his 50 year pin in 2010. He also became an India Lodge Shriner in 1984.

His lifelong love of sports included playing slack pitch ball, golf and watching OU basketball and football.

Holt of Lawton; four grandchildren: Maria Smith, Jana Buksh, Jason Buksh and Connor Holt; a great-grandchild, Caden Smith; two sisters: Priscilla Haugen of Parshall, N.D., and Shasta Johnson of Marlow; and numerous nieces and nephews and other extended family members.
