The hardest part is never getting to say "Goodbye." My heart aches for everyone......family, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and Oh so many friends. He was always "Whitey" to me because I could not remember the nickname of "Cotten" given to him by all the firefighters who adored him as a little boy. It doesn't seem real that he won't be here anymore to spread his kindness, generosity, and that smile of true love. I miss you already Whitey......I love you long time.....and forever.
Jeff, Nay, Mom, Dad, I love you so much.

Tony was truly one of the nicest people I have ever had the honor of knowing. He was a sincerely caring man and always had nice things to say about everyone. My heart goes out to all of Tony's family. Take comfort in knowing how much Tony was loved by all who knew him.

Tony was my maintenance man at GE for many years. I absolutely adored Tony at work and spending time with him at benefits and his BBQ restaurant. He will truly be missed by many people. Tony always had a joke to tell or funny comment to share. Tony lit up every room he walked in to. We love ya my friend. RIP! 😘

I was blessed to have met "Tony T" through some great friends of mine. He never greeted you without an "hello, beautiful", a big kiss on the cheek followed by a big bear hug. I'll sure miss seeing his bright smile at the many benefits he was passionate about. I know he'll be with us in spirit going forward on the bike. You will be fondly remembered always. Watch over us all until we see you again. Fly free & ride free, Tony, T!

Brother..... your smile was always inviting, and worth a million bucks! And you always met me with a hug. I'll miss that.
I'll always remember the day you showed me your newest tattoo, my wife's name, "Kelley", to honor her. Man, what a big heart you had.
I love you, Brother! I will miss you, but will see you again!
Fly High, my friend!
