    Ruth,Sandi,and David. Love and prayers to you and for you. I have known all of you forever and I can say your dad was good through and through he was always the same always smiled talk and laughed. Never nice and friendly then the next time you see him not friendly not talkative. He was a good guy and I know you all are missing him terribly, but don’t we know how overly excited he was to meet Jesus! Love you all. Kim Dickey

    Tony was such a fun man to be around. He always had a quick smile. He was a truly good man. Ruth could not have picked a better husband. He cared for Ruth faithfully. He was a great father for their children, and a great friend to many.
    He will be missed.

    Tony will always have a very special place in our hearts. He was a wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather and friend. Most of all he loved Jesus and was a great example of how to be a follower of Christ! Hugs to Ruth, Sandi, David and the other family members.

    Kathy Heitman: Tony was a great person. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He had many friends. We all loved him. He loved Jesus, and he lived a life that was a true testimony of a Christian. Love, hugs and prayers for my long time friend Ruth, Sandy, David, and the rest of the family.

    Sandy, Thank you for sharing Tony with us here at Shawnee Gardens. I had several opportunities to spend time with him and every time I took him out and was “late” picking him up he would always assume it was because I was getting him some coffee. I only made the mistake of showing up without coffee once. I enjoyed talking with him and getting to know him. His smile and bubbly personality will be missed. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
