    I miss Tony, my friend and co-worker.
    He was always in a good mood, with a smile for everyone, and he was the gold standard in his work ethic. We at Hy-Vee all enjoyed his company and friendship. We have lost a beloved friend. And we know The Broncos have lost their greatest fan. But more than anything, we feel the pain and loss for his children and family.
    Our prayers are with all you in this time of great sorrow.

    My prayers go out to all of Tony’s family and friends. I have had the privilege of working with Tony in Garden City. Tony always came to work with a smile on his face and had such a positive attitude. I had the opportunity to attend several Broncos games with Tony. I know there is no better Bronco’s fan out there. Tony, you have been a great friend to my family as well as myself. You will be missed. Thanks for the memories.
