    So sorry for your loss Sarah and Ben. Tony was one of a kind. So many fun things we did together and he was so very thoughtful. Used to love riding in the car with him and talk., talk, talking about the many things we believed in and listening to our books. Going to Toronto was up in the top 5 greatest things I’ve done in my life. Tony’s determination to do whatever he put his mind to was to be admired as was his ability to suit up and show up and be totally reliable and always do the right thing. Even though we didn’t see each other much you will be greatly missed. Gone to soon, Love Always, Kandis

    Tony was a great guy! One of my favorite people. Tony is the reason I met my wife Betsy. Tony coached a co-ed softball team and was having trouble finding a pitcher! I came out of retirement to pitch for him after he informed me that we had courtesy runners! My 1st base person was this tall 6ft. blonde. I knew she was out of my league, I told a joke in the dugout, she came and sat by me and slapped my leg and said “Weathers that was funny!” Nineteen years later we are celebrating our 16th anniversary in September! Rest in peace brother and thank you for allowing me to play Softball with you! Much Love! Jim
