I had the pleasure of working with Tony for a short time at Best Buy - his ability to make you feel welcome and comfortable was unmatched. I will cherish some memories of the hardest laughter I’ve ever had during some extremely long shifts at work with him. Tony was such an absolutely genuine, caring human being. My heart aches for his friends and family, he will be sorely missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone touched by Tony. Especially Diana and their kids. Tony was a straight up genuine person. Always put his family first. After that, he was a kid at heart like myself. We shared a lot of the same sense of humor and outlook on things. He will be missed greatly.

My best memory of Tony was one evening we met up for drinks and food at a local establishment. I was dating my now wife, whom had two children at the time, and he could tell I was nervous and scared about taking the next step. He said, in his usual jovial manner, "you got this, man! Don't even worry about it! You're going to be a great dad."
I married that special woman and we now have three kids together.

There are many other great memories, but that is one that really hit me when I heard of his passing. Going to miss you, Tony. I'm sorry we were not able to connect and get together in recent times. But know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May you rest in peace.

Tony worked for my family dealership for many years, starting as a porter and working his way to salesman. We became VERY good friends through the years. In fact, he became "the little Brother I never had". During many a lunch hour, Tony would accompany me to my house to let our new dog "Maui" out so she could take care of business. For whatever reason (I assume excitement) Maui would greet Tony by peeing on his shoes EVERY time I let her out of the house. She never did that to anyone else's shoes except for Tony's. They too, shared a special bond. He was always a good sport and carried on with his day, as did Maui! Have you ever had one of those side-splitting laugh attacks that made you buckle over and cry for 15 minutes straight? I experienced one of those gut-busters with Tony about 20 years ago and credit him with my Number #1 Hall of Fame Laugh Sessions! I still crack up, to this day, whenever I think about it! I will never forget his "drier than a martini" sense of humor. By ALL the posts I've been reading, he sure was a great husband to Diana and a One-of-a-kind, WONDERFUL Step-dad to Alyssa, Julian and Addison. Love You "Little Brother". R.I.P Tony (Torch) and may Maui welcome you by re-christening your shoes, one more time.

I will always remember all of the fun times at Kurt and Michelle’s house. We loved to visit when Tony and Diane were there. Eating, drinking and dancing in the kitchen. Tony’s kind and gentle heart will always be remembered ❤️
