It's with great sadness that I write to everyone today.  Myself and everyone 
in Chapter 91 are still numb with disbelief at the loss of Tony.  For those 
of you who were lucky enough to cross his path in life, I'm sure you have 
many fond memories of Tony and are feeling the same as I. He was a great 
friend, a kind, caring man and a gentleman aviator.

Anyone who attended the Northeast Aerobatic Championship will remember Tony 
for the awesome techie's he would do for Chapter 91 and the contestants every 
year.  They were more like an annual, his sharp eye and unbelievable 
knowledge of Pitts and Eagles giving the aircraft's owners peace of mind once 
Tony looked over them. He also hand built from scratch and flew an awesome 
Christen Eagle. It's the one he sold to Tony Lore who then competed in it 
around the Northeast for years.

Viewing will be at the Wagner Funeral Home, 125 Old Country Road, Hicksville 
Thursday from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.

Funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Brigid's Church, 50 Post Ave., 
Westbury NY
Friday at 10 a.m.
