Tony A Mortimer
(23 May 1963-08 Jan 2008)


Webmaster note:  Thanks to Tony's wife Francelle for this posting, and for Steven Farnsworth who sent mission pictures to Francelle (scroll down to view.)

Tony (Mortimer Choro) joined the church while a student at BYU. While performing with the Lamanite Generation, he was encouraged by his friends to serve a mission. His call to serve in Japan was literally his dream come true. After his mission he finished a degree in theater and performed with The Young Ambassadors as guitarist. He felt privileged to have seen so much of the world and to have made so many friends. He was especially in awe of the blessings he received from membership in the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ. We can't remember very many days that he didn't express that in one way or another.

Tony and I were married in the Mesa, Arizona Temple and have five kids—4 boys and 1 girl. The last 3 are triplets. Family life was the purest entertainment to Tony. There was never a dull moment with him. He has been the best husband, friend, and father—not to mention chef, trivia master, and imitator. No one could sing Pavarotti like Tony in the kitchen!

Tony's callings in the church included Elder's Quorum President, Financial Clerk, Gospel Doctrine Teacher, Seminary Teacher, Stake High Counselor, and last but not least, Youth Sunday School Teacher, which he taught until two weeks before his death.

His career and passion was making music and teaching music. In the last few years he finished two albums of his own instrumental music, under the title "King Wah". He taught commercial music classes and studio recording for the last 9 years. He treasured his close friendships with students and college employees.

Tony fought cancer for three years. He counted his doctors, nurses, and other patients among his friends. He lived life fully and made others laugh as though he didn't have a care in the world. He was very sure of God's plan and grateful for the Savior. He wanted to do His will, whatever it was. He came to exemplify his favorite scripture, Mosiah 3:19.

Besides his wife and children, he left behind a loving mother, father, brother, and sister, and many close relatives and friends. We all miss him more than we can express. Tony has a page with some of his music on Myspace (under Music), thanks to Bogdan. Thanks brother J
