Tony Hasti, 51

Tony Hasti, famously known as “Big T,” age 51, of Cokato, joined his brother, Jerrod, in heaven Saturday, April 28, 2018, to spend eternity with Jesus.

A celebration of Tony’s amazing life will take place across the street from the Irvin residence, 3275 Newcomb Ave SW, Cokato, Saturday, May 12 at 1 p.m. At Tony’s request, please do not dress up. Tony was very confident and comfortable in his own skin and would like you to be the same.

Tony lived life to the fullest, enjoying every day. He was larger then life; left no path untraveled and no rock unturned.

He dearly loved, and was loved by his wife, Shelly of 28 years; three children; five grandchildren; and countless relatives, friends, neighbors and other acquaintances.

All who knew Tony appreciated his sense of humor, his raw honesty, his work ethic, his insights, and his opinions. You never had to wonder where he stood on an issue.

Tony loved the outdoor life, including spending time at his cabin, hunting, snowmobiling, riding his Harley, 4-wheeling, dirt bikes, and just being with his family and friends, having fun.

Tony is survived by his wife, Shelly, sons Brandon and Jordan; daughter Ariana; grandchildren Calie, Hudson, Grayson, Everley (who was born just six hours before her Grandpa Tony passed into eternity), and a grandson due in July of 2018.

He is further survived by his parents, John and Mary Hasti of Green Valley, AZ; brother Richie (Heather) Hasti, and sister Julie (Casey) Jaeger, of Apache Junction, AZ.

In addition to his brother, Jerrod, Tony was preceded in heaven by grandparents John and Vi Hasti, and Wally and Helen Harris; and uncle Mark Harris.
