Pat, I was saddened to read of Tony's passing. I think back to our college days with fondness and his wit and smile will remain in my thoughts. My prayers to you and your family. Ken Leith
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.
Patricia, you and your family have my deepest condolence. May the perpetual light shine upon Anthony. May his soul, and all of the souls of the departed rest in peace. God Bless. John Schmitz (Alliant Energy)
