What a smile he had!!!! Uncle Tony was such a good and hard working man. I remember how excited we were to go visit him and the Weenie dogs when we were growing up. Christmas at the Tortessi house was always the best memory of the year. Thank you for all of the love and laughs Uncle Tony. You will be greatly missed but joyously celebrated. Whenever I hear thunder, I am going to assume that it is you up in the clouds driving a big rig. Love you dearly.

Tony has been a part of my life since about 1956. More than family friends, we shared celebration of all kinds with the Tortessi’s. Tony was always there when you needed a friend, a helper, a joke, and someone to lean on. I have so many happy memories of time spent with Tony. I will miss my dear friend. Jeannie

I remember him at Christmas with the small children and talk to them in a funny voice. He just made us all smile and laugh.
