  1. So sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. Terry and I send our thoughts and prayers to your family.
    I have very fond memories of Tony while working on the treadmill next to him at Performance. And of course from Motor Wheel.
    My grand daughters took such a liking to Tony. They were only about four when they met, and would get so excited when they saw him. After their skating lessons we would see Tony at Tim Hortons and he always had a friendly smile and story for them and sometimes a treat. They would ask me every week if they were going to see Tony. Even after skating stopped they often talked about him.

  27. A few years ago, we were visiting in southern Ontario and travelled to Tony’s place with Lee Ann and Grant for a family gathering. It was a delightful afternoon of friends and family getting caught up with each other, some after many years. The tasty treat of the day was Tony’s perch, that he cooked up fresh and with pride. Good memories to hold dear as we remember him.
