The family extends an open invitation to all who wish to attend. Arrangements are under the direction of Trout Funeral Home & Crematory, 505 W. Grand Ave., Ponca City, OK, 74601.

Tony was born in Ponca City, on October 24, 1947. He graduated in 1965, from Ponca City High School. He attended Oklahoma State University and graduated from Central State University, now the University of Central Oklahoma. Tony married Jean Ann Hinton on August 26, 1974, and they had two children, Gilles and Lauren, who currently reside in Oklahoma City.

Tony was a lifelong fan of Formula 1 racing, Bob Dylan music, Sooner football and loved photography. He greatly enjoyed and appreciated nature and wildlife and was blessed with many travels. It was the sand and surf he gravitated to the most and was able to accumulate many memories on the beach. His family meant the most to him and home was where he was the happiest. He loved and cared for many cats during his life, but the kitten he rescued from a tree (Lucy Gooser), always had the most special place in his heart.

Tony is preceded in death by his parents, Louis “Lou” and Virginia “Ginny” Weingart and his youngest sister, Jann Weingart Lyon. He is survived by his wife, Jean; his son, Gilles and daughter-in-law, Rebecca and granddaughter, Luna, along with his daughter, Lauren and her fianc√©, Caleb Masters. Tony also leaves behind four sisters, Joy Scott of Virginia, Diane Riley of Colorado Springs, CO, Patty Weingart Diaz and Dottye Allen of San Diego, CA.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Northern Oklahoma Humane Society, 900 W Prospect Ave, Ponca City, OK 74601.
