Tony was an avid sportsman starting as a junior regional swimming champion of the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy in the mid 1950’s, and after he and his family immigrated to the United States in 1956 continued with speed skating, soccer, tennis and finally skiing being his greatest sports love, which he enjoyed with friends of long standing.
Tony loved his family before all, and he liked to tend his azaleas and geraniums. He also enjoyed reading, good food, good wine, and especially he loved classical music and the opera. Before his illness took control, he liked nothing better than to sit by the pool and drink Porto and smoke a fine cigar.
He will be missed by his family and his friends. Rest in peace, always in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, you may wish to make a donation to your favorite charity in Tony’s name.
