Tony Marchant was born January 6, 1942, in Lusk, the son of James and Pauline Marchant. He died at the Weston County Manor after a lengthy illness. He grew up and attended grade school on the Cheyenne River in Niobrara County and the Morrisey Community in Weston County. He was an active 4-H club member and participated in the first junior rodeos held in Newcastle, winning honors in both. He graduated from the Newcastle High School in 1959 with honors in F.F.A and wrestling.
Following graduation he worked on ranches and participated and helped with many area rodeos. As an avid sportsman, he enjoyed hunting and fishing.
He and Geraldine Bigcrow were married February 6, 1962, at Hot Springs, S.D. They were the parents of two sons and two daughters. Spending their first years working on ranches, Tony went to work for Updike Brothers in 1974 where he was a rig operator at the start of his illness in 1979. He spent the remainder of his life at the home of his parents in Newcastle.
He is survived by his parents Jim and Pauline Marchant, his sons Michael and Jacy, his daughters Brenda Townsend and Paula Brown, two sisters Annette Marchant and Jeanette Patik, two granddaughters Brandy Townsend and Elissa Brown and one niece Michelle Patik.
