The obituary says it well that he had a big heart and never met a stranger. I’ve known him since kindergarten, roomed with him in college, he was in our wedding, and we still kept in touch after all these years – you can’t say that about many. He was one of (if not the) the nicest persons I’ve ever known, and was always positive and smiling. I will miss my friend.

Thank you for those very kind words Brian.

Tony always was ready to mix a perfect Manhattan, and engage in lively conversation. He genuinely cared for his patrons, who quickly became friends, and was ready with a sympathetic ear, and I always tried to do the same for him. He is missed…

Thank you for your kind words for my nephew.

Tony was a knowledgeable costumer and one of our favorites. i will miss his bright smile!

I never missed a chance to talk to Tony when we went to Oahu to eat. My wife loved his margaritas! He did have a big heart and it was always a joy to chat with him. He made sure he acknowledged us when we walked in the door. He will be greatly missed. RIP Tony

Thank you Scott

Tony was a great inspiration to my kids sporting events and lives he made them feel impotant and pushed them further. It wasn’t going out to eat it was visiting Tony. They loved a chance to sit in a booth by the bar and order directly from Tony. I respected Tony he will be missed by my family. We will never forget the extra rice and emergency soda’s to keep everyone happy back in the early days when the kids were a little more antsy and tears were possible. I just can’t believe how time has flown.

No one will ever be able make a better jalapeño and cilantro Margarita than Tony. He was always very friendly and kind.
