To Tony's family. I worked with Tony for several years in Nebraska, Virginia, and Colorado Springs. He was not only an extremely smart engineer, but a very generous and kind human being. I am better for having known him. I am sorry for your loss, and my prayers and best wishes go with you.

I was saddened to learn of Tony's passing. I've known Tony since we worked together at SAC Headquarters in Omaha over 20 years ago. I was fortunate to have Tony as my lead electrical engineer when I was the CEF Commander from 2001-2003. Over the years Tony was a leading authority on many ICBM real property engineering issues and the fruits of his work live on for years to come. My condolences to Tony's family

Tony was a very special guy--he didn't talk much but you always knew that he was deep in thought. While visiting the end of May, Tony decided that he would play a board game with us, with every move you knew that Tony would know the answer before you finished reading the question-but he was patient and never offered an answer.
I think that all the nieces and nephews thought that he was the "smartest uncle ever"
My deepest sympathy to Connie, Megan, Angie and Mike, you guys are "special" family to my kids and I. Love Sheila

I am sorry for your loss and Tony will be missed. The over 12 years I worked with Tony, I found him always ready to engage in a hardy¸ enthusiast discussion on just about any subject and most times he would win or hold his own. He was an excellent Engineer and always knew the right solution to fix the problem. God Bless you and your family.

My name is Mark Kjosen and I worked with Tony from 1996 to 2010 at missile engineering in Colorado Springs.
My first experience with Tony was an educational one, probably because I was a civil engineer and he was electrical! After a few learning sessions, I learned how smart Tony was and how little I could remember what he told me! I was always amazed how Tony could recall technical information and provide data without most of the time looking it up! Over the years as I traveled to the missile bases I often heard people say, "what does Tony think". Tony was a huge asset to the missile engineering world and will be greatly missed.

I'm sorry I am traveling and won't be able to make the funeral services. I would like to offer my condolences to Connie and family.

Farewell to one great electrical engineer!
