Our family is sadden to learn that your beloved Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather has passed away. Tony was a wonderful, kind, welcoming, generous, faithful and gentle man to our family. We have fond memories of him and were blessed to have known him in his retirement years. Our children took some of their first steps in your family home and we will be forever thankful to him for his generosity and kindness. We will never forget the time he visited us in Timonium and we were able to take him to see Pope Paul II in Baltimore. And his home made New York cheesecake is the best we ever had. A devout and steadfast Roman Catholic, Tony will be remembered as a faithful and spiritual member and participant of St. Ignatius church throughout his adult life. While your Father may be gone, know that his legacy and spirit lives in the beautiful families that you all enjoy and in the very bright futures of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Jim, Aurora, James & Nina

He was much more than my father-in-law of 40-plus years - a father and advisor and the most loving and caring husband, parent and friend / neighbor all wrapped with a great sense of humor. When I married his daughter Deborah and we would visit on weekends, breakfast conversations with Dad were special even though no one else in the family were morning talkers. So, here is to you DAD and to crossword puzzles, Fordhook lima beans and good ice. I miss you already. Love Ed
