We now have another angel to look down on us and keep us safe. Tony would sit with me for hours and tell me stories on just about anything. He was a great person to talk to and a dear friend. Thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends. RIP Tony my friend - I will miss you!!

We'll miss you, Tony. Especially at Cabin Fever. It won't be the same without your smile and your jokes. Rest in peace, dear friend. Your family has our prayers.

Our family, including Tony's Uncle Bernie in Mishawaka and Aunt Bernhardine in Arizona, were all greatly saddened by the passing of our cousin and nephew, Tony. Our deepest sympathy is also extended to Tony's mother, Aunt Deannie. As a Cousin and fellow ham, may I say, "Rest in peace, Tony, keep the smiles and laughter coming, and may The Good Shepherd be with you always".

Cousin John, N7LQR
