Tony, you are still in the hearts and minds of everyone that knew you. You are not a forgotten number. The service you gave to the Glendale community was nothing less the excellent and outstanding. I supported your fellow officers and your girlfriend at a car wash held in your honor, shortly after your death. I will continue to support you with your memorial sticker proudly displayed on my rear truck window. Rest in peace Tony!
