I have known Tony since Junior High School.  Quiet, unassuming, yet extremely intelligent.  If you wanted an engaging conversation Tony could give it to you.  Tony was an avid tennis player participating on the tennis team all three years at Woodward.  A member of Hi-Y and the W club.

I am very sorry to hear that Tony passed away. I remember him to be one of the nice boys at Woodward. It is so difficult losing someone you love. My deepest sympathy to Tony's family and friends. All the best, Marsha Goldsmith Zahler

Tony was my best friend for several years. I remember him accompaning me to a basketball game at Wyoming High, I think, while I was Sports Editor of the Bulldog Barks, and everyine getting stuck in snowon the way home.  Tony  was trying to push a pickup truck out from a small ditch when another car rammed the truck from behind - the truck's bumper broke Tony's front tooth.   When we got home his mother swooned and his father took us into the basement with a bottle of whisky, and asked, in very broken english "... You make fight somebody?"  He was the uncanniest ping-pong and basketball player I ever met.  Tennis - of Course!  And selfless.  I remember him saying the "high Y" saying (or some such organization) that "I am third."  God is first, and Country is second, and "I am third."
