Proud husband and father, dedicated his life to God, family, friends, and work, showed us an example of how work and prayer are inseparable, and that there is no such thing as love without sacrifice. He was a dedicated member at St. Mary’s Visitation for many years where he would be seen ushering families into their seats for over 30 years. He owned and operated his own insurance business for decades, and was known for treating his clients as friends. He was also a member of Opus Dei and a Knight of Columbus.
“Tony was a loving, generous, selfless, faithful servant of God who was full of joy, and he will be deeply missed by many.”
