    I will always remember getting hugs from Tony. He would then genuinely ask me how I was doing. We always had good conversations.

    I wanted to express how grateful I am to have known Tony. He always greeted me with open arms and a big smile. He made sure to play by his own rules in life. Carefree and loved the outdoors. So caring and was very selfless with his family and friends. Always there for anyone that needed him. Uncle Tony adored his niece Norah, they had a very special bond. He was so easy to talk to and fun to be around. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
