A graduate of Aiken Technical College, his achievements also included over 20 years of experience as a Quality Auditor and CMM programmer with Aiken and Augusta’s top military manufacturers. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, and husband as well as a very proud father. Tony was an avid photographer and musician, using the camera to express his talent in pictures and the dobro and pedal steel, and his love of music. He was a master carpenter, who could build practically anything. Tony wanted most of all to be close to his family and enjoyed leisure time with them grilling, camping, hiking, boating, and fishing at the lake. Tony was truly loved and will be missed by all.

Tony is survived by his father and mother, Benjamin F. and Geneva H. Rhoden; sisters, Debra Hackworth (John), Port Charlotte, FL, and Julie Woodward (Bill), Evans, GA; daughters, Sierra Nicole Rhoden (John), Longmont, CO, Katherine M. White (Patrick), Charlotte, NC; Linda Rhoden (wife of 32 years) and Brother-in-law Ben (Brenda) Newman, Aiken, SC, Brother-in-law Mark Scott, St. Petersburg.

My prayers are with family. I remember Tony growing up we were born in the same year. His Grandparents were members of Redd Branch Baptist Church. I remember his parents to. Grew up knowing them. My God Bless y’all through this time.
