Antonio "Tony" Niño

February 28, 1953 ~ April 4, 2021 (age 68)


Antonio "Tony" Niño, 68, passed away on April 4, 2021.

“Well, there goes our beer money,” Tony, who did not actually drink, would always say. With a happy go lucky spirit and a charitable heart, Mr. Niño was not only a loving husband and great father figure to his beloved grandson, but he was also the type of person to give the shirt of his back to those in need. He loved to joke and tease and was well known at the Laredo Medical Center where he worked for over 25 years for his signature colorful tennis shoes. He loved his 50’s and 60’s oldies music, was an avid picker of collectibles and just about anything he came across, but his best therapy and pastime was the Zoom meetings he had with his Humboldt State University family, from where he had received his nursing degree in California.

Antonio lived an exceptionally good life. No words can express his loss, and he will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him and those whose lives he touched in one way or another.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Jesus Niño & Consuelo Niño.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, San Juanita "Janie" Niño, sons: Adam Oso Niño, Sergio (Estrella) Ayala Sr. from North Dakota, Ernesto (Marisol) Ayala from Florida & Steven (Colleen) Ayala from Laredo, Texas; beloved grandson, Sergio Ayala, brother, Carlos (Betty) Niño, sister, Ruth (Jagjit) Chatrath, other grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives, friends, & his Humboldt State University family.
