Our sympathy to you and your family. Tony will be missed by so many. Cherish all the good memories.

Sending our love and strength during this unimaginably painful time. Known to me as “Carlos’s Grandpa” Tony will remain an admirable influence in my childhood memories forever. Chasing us kids off his boat in the driveway, allowing us to cause ruckus in his giant back yard, him mowing (all the time), spotting me behind his house when I ran away that one time and then telling on me. (; Always waving every time he came home for the day or when he left. Coming to Carlos’s aid every time we convinced him to do something that got him hurt, which was a lot. The laugh or concern he showed in those moments. Most recently, his welcoming hug when we finally reconnected in FL this year. He truly was one of the most caring people I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. I am so sorry for your loss, I hope you find peace in the fact that he has touched the lives of so many.

To Tony, Stephanie & Frank,I am so sorry for your lost,may you have the comfort of knowing that your dad is at peace with Jesus.

Yolanda so very sorry to hear about Tony, condolences to you and all family members in their time of sorrow. God be with you all and may he help you through this so very sorrowful time. Hugs to you
