    Jean and family- I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Tony at CES for years at Rochester Telephone. He was a great man with a great laugh! I know he will be missed. God bring you comfort in the days ahead.

    Jean, and Family, So sorry to heard about Tony’s passing! As you know we have been friends for many years. Tony and I worked together many years at Rochester Tel. and later Frontier Comm. We had some challenging jobs but they were done and some rewarded for the excellent way they were completed. Our God has him in his hands and will Bless him forever! Amen!
