In loving memory of Jose Antonio “Tony” Medina, who departed this earthly life on Monday, November 6th, 2023.

Known for his passion for weightlifting, Tony’s strength was evident to all who knew him. His heart extended to volunteer firefighting in Georgia before relocating to Florida. In Panama City, he owned a business for 13 years and dedicated time to volunteer efforts, particularly in beach cleanup initiatives. A devoted Georgia Bulldog fan, Tony’s greatest joy was being a Superman to his daughters.

At this time, no arrangements have been made, and the family plans for a private ceremony on a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks you to honor Tony’s memory by expressing love to those close to you today.
