Sirikone Tony Choummanivong was born on December 6, 1982 in Nong Khai, Thailand, to Dalone and Bouavone. He received his degree from The Art Institute of Atlanta in 2005 and went on to pursue a successful career in Web Analytics for the next 15 years.
Tony, as he was fondly called by his family and friends, was a benevolent and selfless soul who did all he could to make sure those closest to him were happy at all times. He constantly fought for what was right and tried to impact the lives of those around him, positively and in his own unique ways.
Tony had many passions. From a young age, he developed his love for music, tech, food, and sneakers. He shared his passions with everyone he met throughout his travels. If you ever needed a restaurant recommendation or a hot tip on how to get those exclusive sneakers, he was your guy.
He spent the last few years of his life doing what he loved most; traveling, playing his favorite music, eating the best foods and collecting an extensive inventory of sneakers. He was, indeed, living his best life, all while sharing it with the people he loved the most.
Tony is survived by his parents Dalone and Bouavone, his sisters, Amie, Sandi, Audrey, Dari, his brothers, Andy and Cody, his nieces, Melody and Penny, his nephews Emrys and Jaedyn, and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
