Thoughts and prayers are with Tony, Bonnie, and all of your families. My sincere condolences to all. I was a young architect with the Corps of Engineers when I first met Tony. He was a very kind and gentle man who became a friend and mentor to me and a number of architects and interior designers. I had a number of things in common with Tony, especially our European heritage. We frequently shared stories about our families, food, mushroom hunting, golf, sports, our family histories and many other pleasant memories that I frequently share with my family and friends. Tony spoke frequently about his family, Bonnie, his sons Justin and Alex, and his mother. We think of Tony often and he will truly be missed.
