Tony enjoyed life at his fullest. His special friend and companion was his dog, Shiloh. He will be dearly missed by his friends, Brian (Michele), Steve (Darlene) and Jerry (Holly). Tony enjoyed spending time on his computer, playing tv bingo and playing games. He especially enjoyed watching the hockey games with his son and wrestling matches with his wife, which truly entertained him with lots of laughter.
