    Tony and I played a lot of baseball in our early childhood in Aberdeen SD. In High School we were partners on in the interior line of the football team where we enjoyed double teaming our opponents. Tony was a great friend.

    Tony was a kind and very gracious man. I am proud that he was my uncle.

    I worked with Tony at NW Bell during the early 1970s. He was a solid thinker and a good friend. He will be missed.
