My condolences to the Paashaus family and all close to them. I consider myself to be one who was close to the family. Nana was always quick to whip up a snack or a cup of tea, late nite jam sessions in the attic are fond memories. I’m a bit shocked to hear of Tony’s passing he had been one to take creat care of himself. May he Rest In Peace.

Deepest condolences to his friends and family. Tony and I had become very close shorty after high school. I got him a job where I worked and we became very good friends and have remained so up until his passing. I visited him many times him Tuscon, and he I. We were talking quite a bit lately as I was considering moving to the Tuscon area.

His passing came as a shock, as we had just talked and Tony said he was in good healt, excising, and weighed around the same he did in HS. Still in shock. Love you my brother. Rest in peace

My condolence to Family and all friends.

I'd like to share some of my history memories and thoughts.

I first met Tony in 1967 when he was in the 2nd grade of St.Leos as he was the younger brother of Rocco with whom I had established a friendship.

I enjoyed most weekends in sleepover parties at their residence / house from circa 1968 through approx 1973.

Tony and I grew up together sharing many friends and enjoying the same types of music, we were both initially instructed in how to play guitar by his older brother Charlie and enjoyed going to many concerts together with family and friends.

We both shared an interest in growing plants and gardening.

We enjoyed a lifelong friendship, shared with older siblings knew parents, grand Aunt "Nanny" who was a fantastic cook and owned the house that the Passhaus Family lived in and with whom Tony enjoyed a special loving relationship
I got to know his extended family of cousins and piblings , and they were all as a 2nd family to me.

Our mothers worked together as waitresses for caterers.

Tony's father was a professional clarinetist who was a member of General Pattons marching band while he served in WWII .

I became very interested in Yoga in 1972 and shared my interest with Tony which resulted in both of us being initiated into Kriya Yoga in the summer of 1976 after being made aware of Yogiar (i.e., Yogi S.A.A Ramaiah) by our mutual friend Neal and Tony remained devoted to the cause of Kriya Yoga.

So, after Tony moved to AZ in the mid-1980's we stayed in frequent contact throgh telephone calls and he often stayed at my house when he came back to NJ to visit.

Tony was like a brother in whom I could confide and share my deepest thoughts and feelings.

I am glad that Tony was able to host Thanksgiving and Christmas at his house in Tucson where many were able to Celebrate a Communion of Life .

I will miss our decades of sharing and marathon telephone calls .

Tony was sensitive , kind , generous and shared whatev
