We were so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I remember going to school and church with Tony, being in Boy Scouts, and riding my pony and cart with him. We saw him a couple of years ago and picked up right where we left off. He was so proud of his daughter. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
My deepest condolences for your loss.

I went to school with Tony grades 1-12. Haven’t seen him in about a year but I am sorry to hear about his passing. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
I don’t make it back to Conway very
often and,consequently,I don’t hear a lot of news from home. However, I just heard this sad news and I am deeply saddened. Tony and I grew up across a field from one another in Conway and spent many afternoons after school playing football and basketball with Steven, Stewart, and Mike. Played football together at NCHS. Will always remember the good times.
I will be keeping all of the family in my thoughts and prayers.
I’m sorry Tony is no longer with us. I remember the good old days and baseball.
