He is survived by his wife and four loving children.
He passed away early Sunday morning on the 18th of February with absolutely no warning. He died from congestive heart failure at the young age of 57.
Congestive heart failure claims about 55,000 lives a year, the sometimes silent but very deadly reaper. Tony died without life insurance. We're creating this Go Fund Me page to support the family during this very rough time. He will be sorely missed. Tony was truly a family man like no other. He was devoted solely to his wife and children.
A little bit about Tony:
In Tony's early adult life he was a soldier in the US Army for about four years. After this chapter in his life he went on to live his life long dream to become a musician and live performer.
Tony became an entertainer/musician for Carnival Cruise Line where he met his soulmate and wife of 28 years. These two love birds sailed the Caribbean Seas for three wonderful years, together, where they built a bond and a love to carry them through the rest of eternity.
Tony and his wife Suzanne were foster parents for five years where they were able to touch the lives of 12 different children. Tony took pride in being a father figure and a role model to these children and was overjoyed to be able to provide a love that many of them had never known. He taught them life lessons and a kindness they will carry for the rest of their lives.
Tony was the kind of man who would quite literally take the shirt off his back to help someone in need. This is a man who didn't need anything except family to make him happy. He always put others needs before his own.
This man had an unshakable faith. He would give away his last dollar because, "the hardships in life are nothing to stress about." When everyone around him bore shaken faith, he would simply say, "Don’t worry, God's got us."
