Tony was such a kind and loving person. Yes he could be a little goofy at times. He was only 12 when I first met him. He would always be there if you needed him. He was a great uncle to my girls and son. He loves his family.
Rest in Peace Tony.
Tony: A life spent in service to others. His career choices, his faith, and his enduring need to put helping family above his own needs. He never seemed to meet a stranger, and once you were a friend you were family. A movie buff who could quote so many films by heart. A fan of his Cowboys, the Stars and Nascar. Rest well friend.
