You have our deepest sympathy on the loss of your brother. After reading his obituary it seemed he led a pretty adventurous life. We will keep Anthony and all of you in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless and stay strong. With deepest sympathy and friendship. Mickey and Joyce Muto.

So sorry to hear of Tonys passing. He helped coach my daughter Katie and so many kids in special olympics. Tony put so many smiles on the kid's faces. May he Rest In Peace.
