I had the privilege of working with Anthony at the NYC DEP.
His humor and quick wit would always put a smile on your face and set an enjoyable tone for the day.
Anthony will be dearly missed by all of those who lives he has touched.
May God welcome you and grant you eternal peace.
RIP my friend!

The memories with Anthony and Donna are just some of the happiest times we can remember. Two people who just loved each other endlessly. His days with us were so happy. Ed Norton retired and we laughed about that for a long time. His love for Donna was just insane. They just worked so well together. Donna and her family and friends will live through his laughter and love. May you Rest In Peace our dear friend.
