Tony was a good friend during our years at Washington. He had a wonderful sense of humor and just a great guy to be around. I am sorry to hear of his passing.

I will always remember Tony fondly.  Another of the 'good guys' is gone.

I am saddened by the loss of another one of our classmates. Rest in peace, Tony.

Tony and I were close friends. We certainly got in our share of trouble. He was a great friend funny and very smart. I had tried several times to contact him without any luck. I did talk to Beth about him this week.

It was always a pleasure to speak with Tony. In the summer of '61, I got the idea to get a motorcycle. BSA,Triumph, Chrome Norton. Those were the vehicles for male teenagers' dreams. I knew Tony loved motorcycles and I respected his opinion, so I asked him what he thought of my idea. Without blinking, and with a full smile and friendship pouring out of his eyes, he looked at me and said "Ben, you are not the kind of guy who would take kindly to falling and everyone who has a motorcycle falls." It has been many years since he told me that. Since then, I have had too many friends seriously hurt in motorcycle accidents, even killed. And, have seen cyclists picked up on the highway and taken by helicopter to hospitals. So, Tony was right. I am NOT the kind of guy that would take kindly to falling and had I got one of those motorcycles, I probably would have. It is no surprise that I have thought of his warning to me many, many times. It worked. For that and his smiles and friendship, I again thank him. His wisdom for me is forever.
