We were so so saddened to learn the bad news. Kristen and family, please know that you are all in our hearts and prayers. Our memories of Tony are the best. He was so kind, considerate and sweet. He made all the years we played volleyball together so special. Yes, he sometimes managed to steal the ball from my spot but always with his sheepish smile!!! We watched you and Tony grow from kids to parents. We have always loved you both. We are so sorry for your loss.....and ours.

With heartbreak I send my condolences to the family.
When I think of Tony, I think of someone who just wanted to do what was right.
He was raised by loving parents, had an older brother that set a great example and in turn set a great example to his younger brother.
He married a wonderful woman and was blessed with beautiful children. He had it all and deservingly so.
But now we have lost him, but forever remains in our hearts and in our memories.
Tony was friendly and kind, honest and polite, smart and competitive. Tony was loved and respected by many.
I truly believe that when the gates of heaven were opened for Tony, that after God himself, his cousin Carlos Jr. was the first one in line to embrace him.
I'm proud to say I was his Uncle, as I enjoyed our conversations about baseball as we were both Met's fans.
He also had a great sense of humor and though I didn't share the same interest he had with Star Wars, I admired his passion when speaking on the subject.
Love for you will not rest, from your family, extended family, and friends. You will surely be missed.
Rest in peace Tony, you wanted to do what was right in your life and I think you succeeded.
May the 4th will forever be with us.

My favorite memories of Tony are of playing Volleyball in Norwalk. I always hoped (and I think it was planned) Tony was next to me on the court because I wasn't very good and he was the best on the team. He was always quietly waiting to pick the ball up and get it over the net, making rec ball really fun and not stressful. We all secretly fought over standing next to him. The trunk-party after was the best part, just hanging out with Kristen and Tony laughing and enjoying life. Praying that Tony rests easy knowing that his family is surrounded by love and support always.

It was with great pain that I heard of your passing. I will never forget our childhood memories together,especially the day you came to say goodbye to me when I left for Portugal. My heart goes to your family. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Rest In Peace, buddy. You were a great friend to me when I first moved to this country. I’ve never forgotten those times you, me, Roger and Ricky would play basketball in my driveway on Comstock St... I’m sorry we didn’t stay more in touch, but from what I’ve heard, you stayed the same great dude you were, even back then. When we were young. You will be missed, Tony.
