Anthony Allen “Tony” Jennings, 47, entered into eternal rest suddenly on July 13, 2014 in Yucca Valley, CA. He was born on April 14, 1967 in Antioch. In heaven he joins his father Gordon Jennings.
Tony leaves behind his adored mother, Janice Murillo, and stepfather Steve, his best friend and loving wife of 28 years, Dawn Jennings, their children, Anthony Allen Jennings Jr., Heather Biegler and Brittany Jennings. Tony was blessed with seven grandchildren: Lilly, Aaliyah, JJ, Adam, Cater, A.J.III and an addition on the way. In addition he has three surviving siblings: Christy Leaver, Roylena Estrada and Robert Jennings.
Anthony was a Manteca resident for over 20 years. He attended Golden West Elementary and went on to Manteca High School. He met the love of his life at the young age of thirteen. Tony had many struggles in life, but always made the best of any situation. He loved his wife dearly and together they raised their children to be respectful and caring individuals. He was hard-working, he drove countless hours working for Esties Express Lines Trucking Company. His family was his everything and his reason to accomplish all that he could in life. Tony was a faithful Catholic, having become Catholic this past Easter along with his wife, Dawn. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren especially while riding quads. He will be remembered for his perseverance and the zest he had for life. He will be missed, but his smile will live on forever.
