Antone Cruz was born March 21, 2023, to the late Eva Lupe and Nelson Lupe Sr. Antone spent many of his earlier adult years rodeoing and made a living as a logger in the great outdoors of the White Mountain Apache Tribe. He also enjoyed playing his guitar, listening to Indian contemporary music, and as a hobby he collected tapes, puzzles, and cultural inspirational items. He spent many of his days in the presence of his companion, the late Caroline Dickey. Antone was a man of strength, fortitude, and faith. He leaves behind his siblings: Leo Cruz, Annette Tenijieth, Everett Lupe, Pastor Gary Lupe (Berlita), Neysa Aguino, Minda Truesdell, Arlene Natan (Burton), and Vallery Bead, his uncle Patrick Cruz (Loretta), and Aunt Reva Burnette.
