The world has one less true gentleman. Always positive, always the problem solver, always the hard worker. I am so saddened to lose my friend.

RIP to a great guy. Tony always had a smile and kind word when we saw him at the Moose. We loved watching him and Sarah dance. He will be missed.

Tony was my brother from another mother. We lived across from each other until they moved when I was in the 1st grade. Our families were neighbors and I considered them my family. I'll always remember the times we visited throughout the years. Tony was a sweet and loving human being. God speed brother! My deepest sympathy to all of the family.
