I worked with Tony at GE for several years. You could not ask for a better boss and friend. We had such good times going to lunch, setting up his equipment on Fridays so he could be ready for playing at the VFW. He was such a prankster when we used to go out at lunch and move his car at the supermarket so Loretta couldn't find it when she came out with the groceries. He was good at magic tricks but would never share how he did them. He was an excellent musician and singer. I will miss him immensely. To Loretta and the boys accept my sincere condolences. Lynn Eddy

Loretta and family, I knew Tony for many years from the musician's union and he replaced me as the keyboard player for the Fifth Wheel which became Chimes when I left the band. He was a talented musician and a kind and gentle friend. I am saddened to hear of his passing. I pray for comfort for you and the family in the difficult days ahead. May your many fond memories of happy days soon replace the feelings of loss you now experience. I am honored and privileged to have known him and call him my friend. Gary Perugini Melbourne FL

Words cannot express the loss that Karen and I felt upon hearing of the passing of Tony. Tony was a great patriot, an adoring husband, a loving father and quit simply one of the best persons I have ever known. The world was a better place while Tony was here and it will be a sadder place now that he has left us. I will always think of him as the young and vibrant man who came to call on my young, beautiful sister Loretta. For me he will always be here making us all laugh. Rest wrapped in the wings of Angels, brother. Gary and Karen Taglieri
