I met Tony in the summer of 1984 and like so many others, found him to be a gregarious, outgoing, positive person, who not only enjoyed his profession but truly served the public. On the morning of his death, prior to boarding a plane back to my duty station, on Christmas leave, I picked up a newspaper and was dumbfounded by the headline. Many, many years later I had the opportunity to meet his son Anthony while attending a course at Northern Kentucky University. Tony would be proud of this young man to say the least.
