Almost nothing is known about Big Tony's life before or as the outbreak began, all that is known is that he ran a gas station and auto repair shop in or near Barnesville, Georgia with his family.
Big Tony is found as a walker, trapped beneath a collapsed fan and other debris behind the counter inside the auto repair shop. He had hung himself from the ceiling fan using a wire, until the weight was too much for the fan and he fell to the ground, already dead. Bob and Daryl find Big Tony inside the auto shop. Bob feels bad for the trapped walker and stabs him in the head with keys, finally killing him.
This list shows the victims Big Tony has killed:
- Himself (Suicide)
- Possibly a few zombies.
- Himself (Alive, Suicide)
- Bob Stookey (Zombified)
When Daryl and Bob are going through the gas station, they find that Big Tony hung himself, fell, and turned. Bob takes the keys to the men's room, and stabs him in the head, killing him.
