Tony was married for 34 years to his wife who he loved dearly and she will always remember his love for her. He was a proud father of his girls and his grandchildren were his world. He loved his mom with his heart and soul they had a wonderful relationship and he loved talking to her. She was always there for him and without a doubt he died knowing that. He was a kind hearted man that would give you the shirt off his back. If Tony had something and you wanted it, it was yours. He was a hard working man who worked at construction and carpentry. He loved to have company the more the merrier. His loyal companion, his dog Sky was by his side right until the end, he loved and took great care of his dog. Tony will be remembered by his granddaughter for buying them Happy Meals he delighted in that. He had a great sense of humor and loved playing match maker and to joke with mother Bessie who he loved dearly. He also spent lots of time with his dear friend Brian Abbott going for coffees and having Brian helping him out in the garage was something Tony loved. He was a strong willed man but his family was his everything. His love and dedication to them will never die and he will be forever missed and his memories will be cherished forever in their hearts.
