Not sure what to say?

My dad was the greatest bowler ever and not too many people can relate. The times I can remeber the most were when he would take me to watch on Thursday nights at New Hope and the team (Jim,Bill,Tom,Tony N.,and Dave) would kick the crap out of the other teams. The team won two championship titles in the Classic League and were in a tight race with the Italian Pie Shop team a couple years ago. My dad had two 300's and had a personal best of 804 which is pretty good. I just hope I can continue...

Patty, Patrick and family and friends
I just stopped by the shop and learned of Tony's passing . I will never forget the wonderful conversations we had. I know he is in heaven. I will never forget him and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers

I just learned.....Tony, I shall miss you. Your spirit continues to enrich those of us priviledged to know you. Let's see, you would fix "unfixable" things at your shop, boom out greetings (you knew everybody), roll 18 strikes in a row, simply be a real good ear. Just a few examples of how you truly loved this life. Yet, on one occasion, I saw you angry - a fleeting bit of anger directed at yourself. You immediately apologized to me (lest I would think you were angry with me). I...

Patty Patrick family and friends,

My family and I are very sorry for the loss of Tony, but he for surely is in a better place. Tony and I have had many discussions but the most important were the talks we had about God and the need for Jesus. He knew Jesus and accepted him as his lord and saviour and I am confident he is in heaven with his father(Andy) and nephew (Nicolas Nelson).

Tony led an extremely busy lifestyle as shoe shop owner and part time...

To Patty, Patrick and the rest of the Anderson family:

Tony was one of those individuals that comes along only once or twice in anyone's lifetime. The shock of his passing has left everyone in my family numb, and I still have difficulty believing he's gone.

I now have lost two such individuals, both way too soon.

From the time I met Tony, we developed a bond that one would think could only happen with family...The amazing thing is that...


You always greeted me with a smile and a handshake. I will miss you.

Patty, so sorry to hear about Tony. We knew Tony and his father Andy, we did all of our business with him. Our father (Bill Ankrom) bowled with Andy and knew him well. Truly sorry for your lose. The Ankrom Family

Patty and Patrick ~ Tony was a rare breed, the kind you never see anymore. He was a gentleman. He was kind and respectful to everyone he met. A true friend, always willing to help out when needed, even if he really didn't have the time. He embraced life, always with a smile even when the chips were down. We know he loved his family more than words could ever express. We will remember Tony with smiles and laughter, always fondly, and never far from our hearts. To borrow a line from the...
