So sad to hear of Tony's passing, I too used to work for Super Shops in the late 80's and early 90's in Texas, sported the mullet right along with Tony. He was an amazing person, big heart, and so selfless, one of those guys that always made everyone smile. We were friends outside of work, and definitely had some great times together. My thoughts and prayer's are go out to your family and loved ones. He will surely be missed, God-speed my friend.

so sorry to hear of Tony's passing, I worked with Tony at super shops in Dallas back in the late 80's, even shared an apartment for a while. Tony was one of the best people I have ever met. He recently got in touch with me after many years. I wish we could have caught up more. I know he will be missed.
