Antonio Tyrone Copeland, 39, was born on February 11, 1980 in Ft. Pierce, FL, to Vanessa Watson and Eddie Tyrone Copeland.  

Although he was a man of few words, he had a huge heart and loved spending time with his family. His adoring love for his mom earned him the title of being a “Mama’s Boy.” He was affectionately known as Tony by most and “Tee Tee Baby” by his auntie Angelia. His favorite hobbies were bowling and playing board games.

Antonio quietly passed away at home on Friday, July 26, 2019. He is survived by his mother, Vanessa Watson (Columbus) and father, Eddie Tyrone Copeland; sister, Kristicia (Kris) Jackson; brother, Jermaine Prince, maternal grandparents, William and Gussie Forts; paternal grandparents, Tim and Irene Copeland; aunts: Angelia (Joseph) Anderson, Barbara (Melvin) Scales, Tara Forts and Tamia Forts; uncles: Clarence Davis, Donald Forts, Tom Green, Wesley(Darlene) Green; nieces: Anaria Jackson, Leilani Jackson and Alexis Watson; and a host of other beloved relatives and friends.

Antonio is truly missed by his family and friends.
