Obituary Viewed 230 times
Tony Lee Rabon, born March 2, 1957, went to see Jesus on Jan. 27, 2024, he lived a long, full life and loved his family and friends. Tony was born with cerebral palsy. Nothing stopped him from having a rich, love filled life. He was a high school graduate from Auburndale High School class of 1976. When asked if he wanted a wheelchair to receive his diploma, he proudly said “No, I’ll walk”. 
Tony also participated in the church play; he played the “cripple man”. He knew he would walk perfectly in heaven one day. 
Tony was preceded in death by both parents, Bill and Ann Rabon, stepmother Maudie Rabon and his loving aunt, Sue Sweeney.
He is survived by one sister, Alicia Deleon, two nephews, David and Christopher Hardman and many cousins. 
The family wants to thank Palm Garden Nursing Home, Winter Haven and Hospice House in Auburndale
 and last but not least, his court appointed guardians of Polk County.
There will be a private graveside service at a later date.
