I have known Tony about 35 years through his music. He taught my son Ben to play guitar. A very talented man that has always been kind. Prayers for his wife and other love ones.

I spent quite a few afternoons sitting with Tony in his lesson room talking about music and life. I loved to hear him tell old stories. I was never his student but he taught me a lot. I will miss you my friend.
