Tony was born on December 27, 1960 in Bladen City, NC, the son of Paul Braye and Pauline Jones.  He attended school in Bladen County, NC and later received his GED.  He worked in the bean fields in North Carolina and later moved to Minnesota in 1994 with his cousin Lawrence to plant trees.

He married Robin Sather in May of 2003, they later divorced, and he married Jennifer Mondt on February 20, 2015.
