My daughter, Katie and I were so sad to learn of Tony's passing. We had the privilege and pleasure of becoming great friends with Tony while he worked at Gentlebrook in Hartville. Eating lunch together was the highlight of our day as we shared stories of our beloved pets, made light-hearted jokes about our life's misgivings, and even contemplated taking polka lessons together. Tony was such a supportive friend, he even drove all the way to Berlin Lake to be with Katie and our family during the estate sale of her grandparents. He was, without a doubt, our "favorite" of all people at Gentlebrook. We feel so blessed to have shared friendship with Tony, and our wonderful memories will keep our dear, sweet friend close to our hearts ALWAYS!
Our sincerest condolences to the Grossi family. The world has lost one very wonderful person!
With kindest regards, Gail and Katie Hartzell

I went to elementary school with Louie and Tony. Their home was on the corner of our street. Tony was a wonderful friend as he was kind to everyone. I wish I had had the opportunity to tell him how much I appreciated him.

Was a very special loving person who loved life.
He loved line dancing. Spending time with his friends. And spending time and caring for his animals. Rest easy Tony. As you will be propped up against the jukebox in Heaven.
Love you,
