Anthony (Tony) Howard Taglavore, 78, was born on October 10, 1944 in Shreveport, Louisiana and fell asleep in Jesus on November 6, 2022 at his home in Gallatin, Tennessee.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Chattie LV (Brown) Taglavore, step-mother Joyce Taglavore, and brother Tommy Taglavore. He is survived by his wife Ruth (Butters) Taglavore, son Trent (Chrissy) Taglavore, daughter Tracie (Taglavore) McClure, grandson Ashton McClure, granddaughters Caroline and Adelaide Taglavore, siblings Alphonse Taglavore, Virginia Taglavore, and Patrick (Jean) Taglavore, and many nieces and nephews.
Tony was a lifelong educator, inventor with patents, photographer, and a firm believer in the unwavering love and compassion of his Heavenly Father. We take comfort knowing that when he opens his eyes again, he will see the loving face of his Creator when Jesus triumphantly returns to this earth to take His people Home.
