Antonio Tyrone Sessions

Antonio Tyrone Sessions, affectionately known as Tonio, was born in Dallas County, Texas, on December 3rd, 1978 to Anthony Tyrane Clark and Kim Sessions. He passed away in Paris, Texas, on March 8th, 2024.

Tonio had a vibrant personality and was a joy to be around, leaving a lasting impact on all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He graduated from Quitman High School in 1997, where he showcased his exceptional athletic talents by excelling in football, track, and basketball.

In addition to his athletic achievements, Tonio had a deep passion for cooking. He was appointed head of the kitchen at Muddy Creek Baptist Church, where he poured his heart into preparing meals for the congregation. His dedication to his church extended to his love for worshiping and finding comfort in the Word of God. He joined Muddy Creek Baptist Church at a young age and rededicated his life to God on December 21, 2008.

Family held a special place in Tonio's heart, and he cherished moments spent with loved ones. Gathering with family and friends brought him immense joy, as he enjoyed recounting shared memories and creating new ones together. Apart from family gatherings, Tonio found peace and enjoyment in fishing.
