Tony was a special friend and co-worker at ATT. I first took up skiing with Tony and thanks to him it become a lifelong sport. Tony had a great sense of humor and love of family. He came to my 50 Aniv party and I went to his.We spent many good times together and I will miss him but more so I will remember him.
