Obituary – Tony Nales




Tony Nales of Fort Lauderdale, Florida passed away on August 2, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Tony, age 67, is survived by his wife of over 35 years, Terri Nales of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, along with four grown children, Anthony, Jr., Justin, Laura and Amy.  He is also survived by four young grandchildren. 

Tony was the owner of Desarata Construction Company of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a company that specialized in the construction of luxury homes in South Florida. For over 30 years, Tony regularly attended the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.  He was an ardent supporter of the industry and loved the beauty and grace of the Tennessee Walking Horse from the trail to the show ring.  Tony loved nothing more than scouting for promising young colts in partnership with his long-time friend, George Zamora, putting the colts into training, and later watching them enter the show ring. All who knew Tony Nales appreciated his generosity, wit, humor and ability to put a smile on the face of those around him.
