I was shocked to open The Victoria Advocate Death Notices today and see that the list was headed by Tony. I considered Tony a special person and friend as we always talked for at least a few minutes every time our paths crossed at the Healthplex. The coronavirus pandemic interrupted those meetings in early 2020 and I had no idea he was afflicted by cancer. He always seemed so active and healthy and I am sorry that I never made the time to target shoot with Tony. Victoria and the world has lost a good man and our thoughts and prayers go with you and your family. The obituary was a fitting tribute to a very good person.
