Antonio Villalpando (Tony), 54, of Arlington, Texas, gained his wings to be with the Lord on Monday, November 30, 2020.
He was born October 11, 1966 in El Paso, Texas to Octavio and Maria Villalpando. Survived by his wife of 25 years, Edelia Villalpando, sons Antonio Jr., Marc and daughter Claudia, brother, sister, numerous nieces, nephews and friends and preceded in death by his sister, Rosa.
Tony attended Woodrow Wilson High School where he played football. He loved watching sports just as much as representing them with his favorite teams being the Cowboys, Rangers, Longhorns, Stars, Mavericks, and Kentucky. He was the most giving, positive, outgoing person, but most of all was really devoted to God and always kept his faith with him. He loved his family so much and would do anything for them. He enjoyed going out for drinks with friends and if someone felt down, he always found a way to bring their spirits up. Tony’s work ethic was beyond amazing, he worked in the sprinkler industry for 38 years and even on vacation, he would still answer calls. Tony was one of a kind and showed his love for others and respected anyone no matter what the situation was. He was a true friend that anyone could turn to. Whether you knew him personally or not, he impacted your life in a way that won’t be easy to forget. He will be deeply missed by family, friends and coworkers and will be forever in our hearts.
