Tony was a beacon of love, kindness and selfless friendship for everyone in his life. Regardless of who you were Tony welcomed all into his heart with a charm and charisma that only he possessed.
He was a proud Marine, and a 1978 graduate of Holy Cross High School, but more importantly Tony was loving nephew, a caring son, and brother, as well as a loving father and uncle. To those whom Tony shared his life with he was more than a friend he was the cornerstone of our family. Inurnment to follow on Wednesday July 30th at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery.

The time is passing quickly since you've passed away and it's still hard to believe that you are actually gone. I do pray that you are watching over Christa and her babies. Charlotte just recently had a really tough time, her seizure's became so violent that she broke her left left/femur and is in a full leg cast. She's on a new daily medication now and we're praying that she never has to go through another seizure! That poor sweet babe has been through so much in her life already at just 7 years old. I hope you are celebrating my Dad up there today is his 99th birthday, weird how you passed on his birthday.

Tony, six years already...Charlotte was born the year you passed, she was one month and two days old that day...she was still in critical care in the hospital but fighting like the warrior she is. She will be repeating kindergarten this year Christa and Jeremy think it best for her even though she excel's in learning and love's it as much as her big brother JJ does. Jacob will be in 4th grade, Elle 8th grade, Eva will be a Junior. Things are hard right now for all children and going back to school during this virus COVID-19. Please watch over our grandchildren during this school year and every year throughout their educations/lives. Amen. Tamme

Tony, it's always hard for me to acknowledge the day you passed away and left this world behind. You died on my dad's earthly birthday and that day is always tough on me but now there are the two of you on July 19th that I mourn, but you are both in Heaven and I try to focus on the beauty and comfort of that instead of the loss. I do hope that you are together with all the other relative's in heaven who look after our grandchildren and Christa.

Happy Heavenly Birthday! You would have been 60 here on earth. Continue to look after Christa and your grandchildren. Baby Charlotte will be 5 on June 17th! All of our grandchildren are so wonderful and so perfect in their own individual ways. Of course this school year is almost done and that will put the two oldest in 10th and 7th grade and the two little's (not so little anymore) in 3rd and Kindergarten!

Hey Tony, i miss hanging out with you. You were a good friend when we were growing up together in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You were taken too soon but God has a plan for us all and I guess He needed a stellar individual in His house, so He hand chose you. What an honor. I love you little brother from another Mother and miss you just as much.

Another earthly birthday for you has come and gone. I have never forgotten the date. I know you visit here often when I have the baby, she's very aware of the spirits of those family member's who've passed and I so enjoy watching her during those visit's with that huge smile plastered on her face and all the happy giggling that she does. It's a shame that you are not in the physical world to enjoy your grandchildren they are wonderful souls. Christa is a great Mom. Please continue to watch over them. Tamme

You are gone but not forgotten, so cliché but very true. I know you are able to see your beautiful daughter and her big family and I know you are here visiting Charlotte with her other grandparent's from Heaven when I am caring for her here. Isn't she such a joy! A happy and content Hydro warrior, love her so much! And of course JJ and the girls, Eva and Elle. I would like to think you are with JJ with every step he take's and his schooling, he's doing such a wonderful job walking in the shoe's of autism, please stay with him and protect him always! The girls are getting so big, Eva will be 14 soon, she has a shy demeanor, where Elle is just the opposite, Taurus! ha! Christa is a wonderful young woman with such strength and personality, be proud, she deserves it for sure! Wish things had gone differently but the Lord knows His plan and now you are everyone's angel. RIP Love, Tamme xo

My dear dear friend Yolanda,

It is with sincere sympathy that I offer my condolences on the loss of your son, Tony. He will surely be missed.
It is important that we celebrate Tony's life as well as celebrate his going home to be with the Lord. I know this is extremely difficult for you and should you need anything, or need me just to talk to please don't hesitate to contact me. You raised a fine young man, and not a day will go by that you won't think of him. He has left an indelible mark on all of us who knew him and loved him. I love you my friend and GOD will see you through this difficult time. Tony is free of pain and is smiling down on all of us who will never forget him.

He touched us all. May he rest in peace.

Yolanda, I was saddened to hear about the loss of your precious son, Tony. Even though we are miles apart you and your family are in my thoughts every step of the way. When your heart is empty , filling it with happy memories can help. When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange so hold on to your memories and let them guide you during this time of sadness. Your memories are the legacy of love that you shared with Tony and I pray that when you reminisce that a smiles will come upon your face just as the beautiful smile that Tony always displayed. Yolanda, I cannot take away your pain but I can listen if you want to talk. I wish you and your family strength and peace and may angels walk with you today and always.

Tony was everything & more there are truly no word's to describe this amazing person. He was a very loving person & he always made sure to acknowledge people. Personally, I know this hit his Holy Cross Brother's in the heart. He was loved & cherished & if Charlie Collazo & frank Collazo had a gathering Tony was on their guest list. He was family and my heart truly goes out to each & everyone whom loved Tony because he will really & truly be missed. God Bless the family & extended family. I especially send out a hug to his children & grandchildren. I always thought of him as an Angel ... now he truly is An Angel! His Blue eyes will look Amazing with his wings. Thank you Tony for being the man that God wanted you to be. You will live in everyone hearts forever. Your smile & memories will be an everyday thought for many.
