Wow, I was so shocked and sad to hear of Tony’s passing. He was one of my “major crushes” in High School, one of his many admirers! I would have loved to have gotten to know him more as post-high school adults, but since I moved away distance did not allow it. I’ll always have fond memories as Tony was a friend to all and a great guy. I know he’ll be missed by his family and friends alike.
