    Tony will be dearly missed at Mahogany Prime Steakhouse, where he worked. He had a way of always making us smile and laugh. He was very humble and giving. We have been talking a lot of him these last couple days and everyone says the same thing. A big heart, great story teller, and a great love for people. The family will be in our thoughts and we pray you will all find strength to you get through the next couple of days and the weeks to follow!

    Dearest Kathi and Dana,
    You are forever in our prayers. The loss of a child is too much. Keep all your sweet memories of Tony close in your hearts. We are sorry we hadn’t met him but he had a beautiful smile. We love you.

    My heart goes out to Tony’s family.
    Tony was my friend. To say he will be missed is an understatement. I can hear his silly laugh, his voice ,and his quirky sayings. “This is my jam” to ANY song he heard.
    . He would lift me up when I needed it.He was there for me during some of my darkest times. He had a profound sense of spirit, and I know he is in a better place; but that doesn’t dismiss how much we are all grieving. It is a rare occurrence in my lifetime that I meet a person who understands me on a level that most people can’t. Tony was that person. He was deeply aware and so kind and caring. I will never forget him as there will never be another Tony. I will miss his jokes, his crazy stories, his laugh, his giant smile when he would see me.
    We all loved you. We all miss you. The impact Tony made with all us at Mahogany will last forever. He will not be forgotten.
    Hey lady, thanks for the ride! (our last inside joke) Love you buddy

    My sympathy to Paul, (Debbie), Kathi (Dana) and all of the family. Sympathies to Shanna, Pam, Corrine and Angie. And to all of Tony’s many, many friends throughout the country. He touched so many lives. Thank you Fran for having the party in May, the memories and photos we took will be invaluable. Tony had so many friends. We are all in shock. Nearly everyone who knew Tony, loved him. He was that type of person. Tony, you were so wise beyond your age. I will miss our texts about the Dodgers, Yankees, Huskers and life. I will miss you SO much. Love, Uncle Joe.

    Tony was an amazing writer and filmmaker. We would talk about movies all the time. He had so much passion. He will never ever be forgotten and his spirit will live on.
