I remember playing side by side with Tony when I was little - he loved his He-Man! And I remember how much he loved his musicals. Tony was gentle and a sweetheart and a big part of my happy memories with the Lettieri, Eck and Millard families. Hugs and kisses to all of you; I am sorry I cannot be there for mass.

I met Tony when I was a kid in Oak Lawn since my family was friends with the Myers and Ecks. Then I got to know him more when we moved to AZ.
He was always fun and I do remember the singing and dancing. He was pretty good in the pool as well, especially doing cannonballs!
Tony was always nice to me and we liked the same action figures.
Please accept my condolences and take care everyone.
Love Steve Yontez
