Tony had many talents. He was a speed swimmer and lifeguard in his younger years, an excellent cook, photographer, writer, carpenter and plumber. He was also a graphic artist (designed the Conard Corp company logo). He could design and build almost anything. Tony was a rescuer, everyone who knew him could call on him for anything. He was a superb gentleman and intelligent man you could always count on to do the right thing. Tony enjoyed the little things in life and it didn't take much to make him happy. He especially adored spending time with his grandchildren and nieces. He enjoyed reading books and learning and teaching. He also was an avid Uconn Women's Basketball fan .

His family wishes to give a special thanks to Bill Fox and all the associates at Conard Corporation for their kindness, appreciation and respect for Tony, as well as Dr. Menon and the staff at the Wethersfield infusion center. We all love and will miss you, Tony. A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.
