I was shocked when I saw this in the paper. Although I knew Tony from years back growing up on Blythe Island, I got to know him him best from my game warden days when I'd see him out enjoying God's creation, especially deer season. We'd talk sitting on the tailgate of a truck and I always joked with him about dressing him like "Hank Jr." and taking him out and getting him to sign autographs for folks, since he resembled him somewhat. He had a good sense of humor and I will miss seeing him around...Godspeed Tony.

I am so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. While I had not seen him in many years, I remember our elementary school days and playing in the neighborhood. I pray the Holy Spirit will comfort you in the way that only He can. I love you, all.

Tony, I was so saddened to hear that you were gone. It has been years since we have seen one another, but I will always remember how you always put a smile on my face with your jokes. I pray that your family finds some peace with your passing. I enjoyed all the photos, but was surprised that there are not any of your daughter. I would have loved to seen some of her. She was always so sweet and respectful when I would see her out and about. Again, I am praying for your family.
