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. An avid Red Sox and Patriots fan, he was always sporting a hat to reflect his love for his teams. He always had a joke ready to tell. 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. Whenever he was with them, he had stories to tell, happiness to share, and he lit up the room. Words can’t express how much he meant to every person he met. He will be missed by many.
