Dear Donna & family,
So sorry to hear of Tony's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. He was a wonderful neighbor and friend. Tony would go the extra mile to help anyone he could help. He had a warm heart and a kind soul. Many a morning I remember having chats and a few good laughs with him while walking Spudley. He was a great guy and will be truly missed. May peace, strength and your beautiful memories of him live in your hearts forever. Carol & Mike Falls

Uncle Tony I will forever hold you close to my heart and always remember the great times we had as a family growing up! You were always one of my most favorite uncles and also one of the coolest uncles I had! To this day every time I hear a song by the band Chicago I think of you and remember how much you loved all their songs and knew every word by heart! You will be missed in this life but the hope we have is that we will get to spend eternity with you someday. Cousin Carol and Donna I am so sorry for your loss and I pray for the peace and comfort of Jesus to be with you both during these difficult days ahead. Much Love to you both and may God's Blessings and protection from above surround you now and always.
Love from your cousin Joann

He was one of the most peaceful and LIFE LOVING men you could ever hope to know. To see him would always pick up my spirit. I count it as a true blessing to have had him as my uncle. I believe that the souls of great people are the CANDLES of God. The world has less light in it now that Tony is gone. But his light will always shine brightly in my heart at the mention of his name. I love you Uncle Tony.
Always your beloved nephew,

Donna, So sorry to hear about Tony. I don't know if you remember me. Tony worked with my Dad "Vito" at FD Rich years ago and you and he would often stop by our house to visit with my dad and mom "Marie". They shared many stories, laughs and good times. My father has been gone 30 years now and I know he and Tony are probably smiling and talking about the old days. I often think back about that time and remember how many good times you all had. May you find peace and healing with your family. Lisa Polestra, Stamford, CT
