  • One of the kindest men anyone will ever meet. My favorite memory will always be dancing with him at every family wedding. My thought and prayers to all the family. Much love, Gail Costa

  • Uncle Tony was a wonderful man in so many ways. He loved to make people laugh with his stories of life on the farm or his wild antics. His laugh was contagious. There are so many who will forever think he was "39" yrs of age because that was his response when asked how old he was. He loved the outdoors, sitting under the shade trees in his yard with a can of "Geritol". John wants to thank you for the beers & great talks. He was deeply loved by all of us who knew him. We will miss him dearly. Rest in Peace.

  • We are so grateful for all the wonderful memories we have with Uncle Tony. From the great cookouts to the quiet visits under the tree. Al will treasure every conversation whether funny or serious. Our lives are better because he was part of it. His hospitability was second to none. Uncle Tony was loved by many and will be greatly missed especially by us. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael, Michelle, Ron and the girls. Love, Al, Sharon, Jay, Jen and Nathan in SC
