Aristide "Art" Earl Ton

 

Aristide “Art” Earl Ton, 93, passed away on June 30, 2022 in Shreveport, LA following surgery from a fall.  He was born on April 29, 1929 in New Orleans, LA.

As a child, Art attended Gulf Coast Military Academy in Gulfport, MS.  He graduated with a B.S. in Physical Education from the University of Mississippi where he was a member of Sigma Chi.  After serving as an investigator with the U.S Army, he earned a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Louisiana State University. 

Art retired as a senior engineer after 25 years with Texaco.  He loved playing tennis. In 2009, at age 80, he and a friend won the 2009 LA Super Senior State Championship in doubles tennis.  He was a caring, inquisitive gentleman who was always ready to crack a joke.  He was a thoughtful, friendly, giving man of morals who always showed love and gratitude to others.

Art, also known affectionately by his family as “TD,” is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Yvonne McCabe Ton. He is predeceased by his parents, Graeme M. Ton, Sr. and Grace Barthelemy Ton; and his brothers, Graeme M. Ton, Jr. and James H. Ton.  He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and close friends.
