Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to Tony's family and friends on their loss, having known Tony and his brother Joe for many years from when they had their business to lately with him being the building inspector in Easton whom I would see to get permits, Tony was always friendly, proud of his family, affable, a pleasure to talk to and work with. May he always be in your hearts and live on in your memories.

I am very sorry for your loss. I only knew Tony briefly but it didn't take long to see what a wonderful person he was.
Rest in Peace Tony.
