I had the privilage of working for Tino and Oscar at the Gulf Station in 1969 and 1970 while I was still in High School. Tino was a kind and understanding boss. When I put a car on the lift one day, I left the drivers door open and when I raised the car, the door hit the tire rack between the bays, damaging it. I thought I was going to be fired. Tino came into the bay, was quiet for a minute, then said "I knew that would happen sooner or later". I continued to work there until graduation. Tino helped me out many times and was a prime example of a good man. Many good times were had there working with my freinds Harry, Gary S, and Toch. Fond memories of simpler times.

Mr. Vitali, Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USN during the Cold War. Millions of Americans slept safe at night because you and your fellow Servicemen stood ready to defend our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
