Whether working out at the Racquetball Club, Wrestling, going to parties in the summer or playing cards until 6 in the morning with your uncle Gary. I wouldn’t change it all for the world. You were truly one of a kind Bonehead! You will be missed. Rest In Peace my Brother

    candle 6My condolences to his family. I went to high school with Tony, he was a few years older than me and I didn’t “know” him well, but everyone “knew” him. He was the popular cool good looking nice guy. 🙂 Too young to leave this world; may he rest in peace and may memories bring comfort to his loved ones.
