A longtime friend, John Lewis, wrote: Tony was a great man and the best friend you could have. He was not afraid of hard work. The best memory I have of Tony is how he treated me when I returned from my first deployment. At that time being in the military was not cool. People hated us, but not Tony. He gave me the best welcome home party. He didn’t care who you were or what race you were. He welcomed my wife from Asia as if she was a long lost sister. When a man treats you like that, you never forget him.
