Anthony John Hallermann was born March 18, 1981 in Seoul, South Korea. Tony was adopted in February 1983 to Wayne and Darlene (Boeckers) Hallermann. Tony was a down to earth young man. He lived for his parents, helping them out any way he possibly could. They were his world, as he was theirs. Tony had an outgoing personality from little on and would spark energy in others. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. His words of wisdom and friendship will be dearly missed.
Tony was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church. Tony was an active outdoorsman. He loved NASCAR, go-karting, stock car racing, playing poker, and spending time with family and friends. Tony’s passion was racing. He started racing when he was 17 years old. Tony’s racing number was 37 and was called “Tony the Tiger.” Every time he and the U-Cars came out on the track the song “Eye of the Tiger” would be played.
Survivors include his parents, Wayne and Darlene Hallermann of Sauk Centre; aunts and uncle, Rose Rooney of Belgrade, Eileen (Reggie) Vasser of Lakeville, Wilfred (Janet) Boeckers of Sauk Centre, and Mary Ann Boeckers of Sauk Centre; and many cousins, relatives, and friends.
Tony was preceded in death by his infant child; grandparents, Ben and Nothburga “Sally” Hallermann and Leander and Amalia Boeckers; and uncles, Eugene Boeckers, William Rooney, James Hughes, and Carl Hoffmann.
