Tony was and will always be the salt of the earth. He is one of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege to have known and worked with. His positive outlook on life with an inspiration to me and likely everyone else who ever had the fortune to have met and gotten to know him. Tony will always be with us in our hearts and memories. Please accept my deepest condolences for your lost but find solace in knowing how many lives Tony has touched and how the world was and will always be a better place thanks to Tony. John Bell

Tony was one of the most positive thinking and nicest person that you would ever what to meet and work with. I am so sad to hear this news. He was a bright light to the day. Please accept my condolences.

Condolence from Carol Martinelli Sharma on December 13th, 2016 5:00 pm

It is with great sadness that I read of the passing of Tony. I still have such vivid memories of summers and Christmas times spent in the home. Even as a young child I knew Tony was a kind and loving man. I am so sorry for the family’s loss as his presence in your lives can not be measured. I lost Dad about a year and a half ago and the loss of a strong and loving person is without compare. My love to each and every one of you as you go through this difficult time. Tony was a blessing as a husband and father and grandfather, of this I have no doubt.

Condolence from Pete Gores on December 16th, 2016 6:16 pm

On behalf of all his friends on the Mohawk, Adirondack and Northern Railroad I would like to express our sincere condolances to Tony’s family on the loss of this great man. He was a gentleman, a mentor and a friend; who was always there to help and guide you when it was needed. Tony was always generous with his knowledge of railroading, an industry that he grew up with, and obviously enjoyed. I am indeed grateful for the memories and the knowledge gained from this great man.

See you at the end of the line, Good Friend.
