Greg Pearson on Sep 13, 2018

Notice of Tony's death was passed to me by our classmate Ruth Goldberg. As you may recall, Tony and I were roommates for two years at Swarthmore. Although we did not keep in touch after graduation, I will always remember him for his calm demeanor, great sense of humor, and warmth.

My condolences to you and your children during this trying time.
