Tony was my best friend, and his passing has left an emptiness in my life that can never be filled. Tony and I talked or texted two to three times a day about everything. Tony was my go to friend and he is missed dearly.

I know Tony loved his family, as he always talked about their concerns and always wanted to help.

Tony never served in the military, but supported them 24/7. I respected Tony for his patriotism and love for America. I would have been proud to have served with Tony, and would have made a great leader.

He is with God now.Goodbye my dear friend and Rest In Peace.
