Tony, you were the always the best part of my day. I’m going to miss you terribly. I’ll never forget the “log cabin” you made out of rocks on the slope of the house complete with a tv, radio and chair. All of which you found on your travels. Or how you would always hit me up for a toonie for a pop. Or when I heard a smash only to look out the door and see your radio roll down the hill because it wouldn’t play Bob fm. You were the best tree doctor even when you put racks in the trees or when you watered them with Pepsi. The “lazy” work crew at the psych will no doubt miss your hard work which made their days easier I’m sure. Tony, you were a special man to me and so many others. I love ya

I have so many wonderful memories of Tony, and will cherish those quiet mornings when we would hang out in the living room at Edward Street chatting together over a cup of coffee. I would frequently see Tony walking through the city, along the paths when I was out for a run, and he would enjoy when I would stop to chat. I could always relate to his restless nature and need to be doing some form of work. He was in his happy place when he was outdoors seeing the fruits of his labour, and this often brought out his mischievous side, which made him so unique and special. I will miss you Tony, but I will never forget you.

I remember Tony very well when I worked at the hospital here in Brockville, he would go around picking up the garbage that was laying around and throw it in the garbage cans where it was supposed to be. Rest in peace now Tony, don't worry it's time for everyone else to clean up the world and you to relax now my old friend. My sincere condolences to Tony's family for there loss.
