On behalf of the Shirley Thursday Night Ladies league, I wish to say that Tony was a part of our lives for many years. His easy smile and his concern for each of us was always evident and I think he enjoyed watching us bowl and have fun. He frequently joined us at Christmas parties shared a few laughs as well. We will always remember him and want to express our condolences to his family. Rest in peace Tony! We will all miss you! --Jackie, Roberta, Amy, Carol, Pat, Ruth, Rosemarie, Karen, Diana, Becky, Linda, Diane, Pam, Alicia, Rachel, Caelan, Jess, Ashley, Liz, Judi, Joann and Donna

Bowling on the Shirley Women's Bowling League has been the highlight of my week for approximately 25 years. Tony was always happy to see us, give us a smile, sing a tune, give a hug , commiserate or celebrate with us and always wish us well. He is dearly missed. So sorry for his family's loss and ours.

A kind, gentle man who enjoyed his bowling alley. My 34 yr. old daughter still remembers her birthday parties there. I think the majority of a certain age bracket of kids in Harvard had birthdays at Tony’s. And in recent years I enjoyed bowling with the ladies every Friday. An icon gone but he will not be forgotten. I send my sincere sympathies to his family.
