Tony Eaton
Funeral Director

It was 1976 when Tony's parents, Chuck and Margye Eaton, moved their family to nearby Segno, where Tony attended the Big Sandy school system, graduating in 1988. He then went to work for Pasadena Funeral Chapel in Pasadena, Texas as a student apprentice. This was while he was attending the Commonwealth College of Funeral Science in Houston. After graduating and getting his Texas Funeral Director's licenses, Tony joined Turner Funeral Homes in Freeport, Texas. It's also where he met his wife, Hope. Their family now includes four children: Wade, Blake, Dalton and Faith. Hope is a registered nurse with the Timberwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, specializing in certified wound care. Tony and family have now returned to Segno. In fact, they live just across the street from his parents. All of us Pace Funeral Home are pleased to welcome Tony into our outstanding team of caregivers.
