Family was the most important thing to him, the driving force of every decision he ever made. He will be immensely missed but his legacy will live on forever in our hearts and our memories. Tony was an avid golfer, enjoyed coaching Little League for many years, was the self-appointed “techie” amongst his friends, an expert researcher, a terrific host, and an Olympic level downhill skier. He fought a valiant battle against Acute Myeloid Leukemia since he was diagnosed last September. In line with how he lived his life, he spent the last year continuing to create memorable moments and making sure everything was in order for his family. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (cmtausa.org).
