Tony was a friend for over 60 years, and despite his trials and tribulations, he was always optimistic and cheerful. We enjoyed every visit, having a beer, talking old times, and solving the world’s problems. Our N P visits won’t be the same, he was a good man, who enriched many peoples lives. Our sincere condolences to Tony’s family.
