Not sure what to say?

It's been 6 years now since Tony departed this world, and 41 years since I met him at the Wharf, but that meeting will always be a highlight of the several months I spent in the USA back in 79. He was a really nice and happy guy, and I wish his family all the best in coping with his loss. His smile was one in a million.

A great American

I am a 62 year old Australian who passed through San Francisco in 1979. Tony had been on Quantas commercials, so I tried to find him at his workplace. I found him OK, and he was a hell of a nice guy. I was just looking through my old photographs when I saw his picture, so I Googled him and I found his name and the fact that he just passed away on 30 July, 27 days after my wife did the same. RIP Tony. You left a great impression on this wandering Aussie, and you were a fantastic advertisement...

Maria, with this note comes a heart filled with love and sincere sympathy at the passing of your father. May you and your family find comfort in knowing that during this difficult time you are all in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless

I worked at Cresci Brothers in the 1970's. I have very fond memories of Tony, he truly was one of a kind. My deepest sympathy to the Cresci family on your loss.

Thank you Uncle Brother for everything I learned from you. I always looked up to you and proud to call you my Uncle. You were always caring and loved making everyone happy. You always made customers feel special too. They always came back and asked for you.
You are one of a kind and a very special Uncle to all us. I love you. May you R.I.P. Uncle. You will be missed. You are in my blood forever. Xo

Thank you Uncle Brother for the love you gave to your nieces and nephews all through the years, we will always love you and Auntie Pauline. Love Denna

I worked at Fisherman's Wharf for 45 yrs. so of course I knew Tony, as well as Domonic and Frank...all 3 were great down to earth guys. I think Tony was the most photographed man in SF, with his rakish mustache and red, white & blue crocheted hat. Like many, many others, I will always remember him fondly.
