Tony was born on October 9, 1981 in Escondido, CA and departed this life peacefully on Sunday, May 12, 2019 in Denver, CO with his mother by his side at the age of 37.

Tony graduated from Wiley High School in 2000 and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. Tony’s Facebook profile stated “I love God, family, and work. Plain and Simple.” Whatever work Tony was doing, he always did it well.

Tony was preceded in death by his first Dad – Mario Gutierrez; maternal grandparents – V. William “Bill” and Jeanne L. Sharples-Smith; by his paternal grandfathers – Clifford “Gene” LaCost and Genaro “Joe” Gutierrez; and by his Uncle Mitchell “Trent” LaCost.
