Tony was a loving and caring man who would give the shirt off his back to help others. His smile was contagious. On any given day, if you asked him why he was so happy, he would reiterate how grateful that he was able to get out of bed and see another day.

It was almost expected that it would be one of the first things he said when he saw you. He loved spending time with his family and friends.

This has been a hard one to comprehend. Such a kind person to everyone. He loved sharing photos of his family and grandchildren, but quickly in the next breath he asked about your family. My heart goes to your family, he has certainly left an empty space in many hearts.

I's so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. I worked with him as a teenager and very much looked up to him. He was such a fantastic and funny person and even though I haven't seen him in nearly 20 years I know that would still be true today. I will continue to remember him fondly. I'm so sorry to the family for your loss.

Tony and I grew up as childhood neighbors and friends. He would always see what he could do to help my mom or keep an eye out as my dad worked nights. Apparently he never lost that quality of kindness and helpfulness. The many good memories and friends who loved him will help you all during this upsetting time. ❤️
