Tony, as he was affectionately called, moved to Syosset in 1959 and remained there until retiring to Santa Fe, N.M. in 1997. The jewelry business was his life's work which included 25 years as a Manufacturer's Representative for HONORA in Manhattan. A Yankee fan going back to Joe DiMaggio's arrival in 1936, Tony was a frequent contributor to the popular "Mike and the Mad Dog" program which ran for 19 years on WFAN debuting in 1988. His son Christopher was the "Mad Dog" part of the equation and ironically enough a Yankees hater. Tony and his wife Molly celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary on the 19th a day after he turned 82. Besides wife and son, Tony leaves behind daughter-in-law Jeanne, four grandchildren and four nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held this Friday the 30th at St. Mark's Church in New Canaan, Ct. at 11.00 a.m. A rception at the Roger Sherman Inn will follow
