Although his official title was Operator, he was also a confidant, mentor, cook, gracious host and trusted friend. He will be truly missed by all who were fortunate to work with him.
Tony (TR, Rocket, The Brain) wore a warm smile on his face and his heart on his sleeve. He enjoyed talking with everyone. A trip to the corner WAWA would take well over an hour. His pantry was always stocked with canned tomatoes and pasta bought in bulk. He just could not pass up a good sale. His greatest joy in life was sharing a delicious meal with family and friends. If you knew Tony you more than likely knew his fried peppers as well. His stories and words of wisdom will be missed by many. Through his life, Tony taught us all that in kindness and generosity comes real strength.
