Tony was born in Lancaster, Calif., on December 11, 1973, and was raised in Newhall.

A graduate of Hart High School, Class of 1992, Tony ran Cross Country and made socializing a varsity sport.

Tony had a passion for life and it showed in all the different careers he chose. He attended L.A. Film School and earned a certificate in Producing in 2003. He worked for several years as a casting director in Los Angeles and also in music production in Santa Monica.

In 2010, he attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Pasadena, focusing on restaurant management. He went on to become a restaurant manager in San Francisco during the last three years.

Tony loved to snow ski and had many happy times with his family and friends in Mammoth and Park City, Utah.

His sister Lauren said, “Tony was the best big brother anyone could ask for. He made friends everywhere he went and was the life of the party. He lived life to the fullest and there was never a person he met who didn’t become his friend.”

Tony is survived by his mother Susan of Grass Valley, CA, his father Larry (Peggy) of Newhall, his sister Lauren (Shane) of Truckee, CA, his niece Shiloh, his beloved Chihuahua, Madison and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins who will miss him greatly.

Tony is preceded in death by his grandfather, Carl Rasmussen and grandmothers Hazel Rasmussen Parks and Peggy Joiner.

A celebration of Tony’s life will be held on December 20, 2013 at 1:00 PM at Eternal Valley Memorial Park in Newhall, CA followed by a reception at the home of Charlie and Patti Rasmussen.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to your favorite charity in Tony’s name.



Bio: Born in Lancaster, CA, Tony was adopted by Susan and Larry Rasmussen. Tony was raised in the Santa Clarita Valley and attended Hart High School.

Currently, Tony is involved in extras casting and is in development for an untitled feature film.
