He was a disabled Vietnam war veteran and retired diesel and marine mechanic. His mechanical knowledge and skills were extraordinary and highly sought after. Tony never met a stranger; he had an incredibly large and diverse group of friends and treated people as he wanted to be treated. He was known for his generosity to family, friends, and strangers. He loved to travel, drive fast cars, eat good food, show people a good time, and so very much more. He is loved and missed by many.
