Tony worked at Revere Copper & Brass for over 35 years. He loved to ride his Harley, fix up old cars, mow his lawn, try new recipes and make people laugh. He always had a story or a joke but he was always willing to lend a hand. He had many close friends that he cherished. He adored his wife, Elaine and missed her greatly. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Valerie & Paul for the never-ending help during these past few years.
