Tony had lived in Middleburgh most of his adult life. For over thirty years, he was a truck driver for Mayflower. Most recently he drove for Rist Transport.

A collector of model cars, he also enjoyed his 1999 corvette and listening to rock music on his compact discs.

From his son, Alexander Kouse, who survives him: "You taught me how to survive in today's life, taught me what it means to work hard. I don't know where I'd be if you didn't come into my life and bring me in to yours. I will always continue to strive and make you proud. I love you, Dad."

Tony is also survived by his girlfriend, Karen Williams, of Middleburgh, and several aunts.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 10:00 am at Our Lady of the Valley, Main Street, Middleburgh, NY.
