Tony Lee Wilkerson Sr., age 57 of Lebanon, TN passed away in his sleep on March 13, 2017.
Tony was a free spirit at heart who loved to share his passion for life with those he loved. Tony never knew a stranger and has friends from all over this great country. Although he loved seeing new sights, his heart was ever ready to be back at home with his family. Tony loved nothing more than his kids and his grandkids and he would move mountains just to make them smile. Tony was greeted in Heaven by his sweet momma Barbara Ann Wilkerson, who left us 11 short months prior, and his heroic first grandson Austin Peyton Wilkerson, who passed away just two-and-a-half short years ago, as well as his twin baby girls Amy Yvonne Wilkerson and Angela Dawn Wilkerson.
Tony was born on June 2, 1959 in Orlando, Florida. He is preceded in death by (daughters) Amy Yvonne and Angela Dawn Wilkerson; and (grandson) Austin Peyton Wilkerson. He is the son of Johnny Wilkerson and the late Barbara Ann Wilkerson. He is survived by his wife, Beth Wilkerson and his pride and joy, his children: Tony Lee (Angela) Wilkerson, Jr.; Jill Nicole Wilkerson; Brianna Walden; Wesley Holliday; Lori (Heath) Watkins; Katie Holliday. He is also survived by the 12 grandchildren he adored; as well as his three sisters: Jackie (James) Slayton; Jamie Bennett; Penny (Glenn) Wright and a multitude of cousins, aunts, uncles, an abundance of loving friends and family members.
