  1. I am who I am because of the influence that he had on my life. He was a wonderful man, a fabulous cook, gardener and listener. He was loving, affectionate, funny, kind, caring, generous, patient, sensitive, and very strong. Everyone’s life that he touched was made better by knowing him. He will be very, very deeply missed. His passing has left behind a hole in our lives but all of the wonderful memories we created with him will hopefully fill this hole. May he rest in peace with his beloved wife Angie until we all meet him again.

  2. My Uncle Anthony was a wonderful man. He had such a kind and loving heart and made people feel valued and cared about. He will be greatly missed.

  3. To Uncle Tony, We are so grateful to have known you, to have loved you, and been loved by you. There are very few people in the world with a heart as big as yours. We will miss you.
