Mansfield: Hail to the victors valiant! Hail to the conq’ring heroes! Hail! Hail to Michigan, The champions of the West! Tony Browning loved all football, however, Michigan Wolverine football was his life!! From a young age he cheered for the maize and blue, even studying the great Michigan football teams from past decades. He proudly passed his passion onto the next generation….his children. A bit opinionated and boisterous, Tony was also a family-man. He always had unconditional love for his family and friends. If he called you friend…you were a friend for life.
Anthony “Tony” Browning, 47, of Mansfield passed away unexpectedly in Avita Hospital Bucyrus, Monday morning, April 5, 2021 from complications following surgery.
Tony was born February 3, 1974 in Trenton, Michigan. For nearly 25 years Tony worked for General Motors, most recently as tow truck operator at the General Motors Parma, Ohio plant.
Tony also loved to fish, at Charles Mill Lake.
When it came to music, he was all about hard rock. Metallica, Pantera and Lynyrd Skynyrd were just a few of his favorites. The harder and louder the music was, the better.
