Dennis, Gary, Bonnie, Muriel, Aunt Nancy and Uncle John,

We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Tony's passing. He always greeted us with a big smile and hug when we were able to visit.
We treasure the toy box that he made for our son, Stephen. Tony, your Dad, Companion and Brother will always be remembered for his kind heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you honor his life.

Dennis, Gary and Bonnie,

Please accept our deepest sympathy on Uncle Tony's passing.
He was loved and will be missed.

He never forgot my mother and father. He kept in touch and visited. Even after dads passing, he would visit and keep tabs on mom. Now they are together again.

Rest in peace Uncle Tony!
