BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
To Tony's family, friends, all that loved him, his kind & gentle spirit, his dry wit and love of comedy & sci-fi. We also remember Tony and how he inspired each of us in his own special way. He was always calm. One of the most gentle people I've ever known Tony was born in Long Beach, CA on February 25, 1960. He grew up in Lakewood, CA with two sisters and one brother. Tony attended St. Pancratius grammar school where we was also an altar boy. His two best friends from childhood, Brian and Mark, have shared many stories of all their adventures and fun they had. He went to St. Anthony's High School in Long Beach where he was a member of the school band. Tony moved to NY in 1978. He was married and had 5 children. Four boys and one girl. On the evening of February 21, 2017, Tony passed away after a long struggle with colon cancer. Tony will be missed for many reasons. His smile, his laugh, his reassuring inner strength and love of family and friends. In his memory, a donation of any amount is appreciated.
