Tony was a devoted father, grandfather and a beloved friend to so many. His presence will be greatly missed. He and Joanna raised five children by the ocean, where he loved to fish and take long walks on the beach. He particularly treasured the close group of friends with whom Tony spent years traveling with, entertaining with and sharing family events with. He was an avid golfer, hunter, gardener, photographer and he enjoyed music and sunsets.
