Tony was a brilliant, unique individual, always interesting to talk to on almost any subject. We worked together at Sperry for many years, and he was a very productive, helpful colleague with a good sense of humor.
We shared technical interests, Go playing, and an East New York background - I grew up on Logan Street, not far from his long residence on Pine Street.
Tony will often be thought of and always missed.
