My deepest sympathies to the family of Tony. I just heard about his passing this morning. I had many conversations with him about real estate here in Gardner and he was a lovely person, easy to talk to and so very pleasant to me. Each time we traveled through Harvard past the lane we would always mention his name. He will be missed by many people who knew him here.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Tony’s family and friends.
As a bowler at Harvard Lanes on a league for 30 years I saw Tony at least once a week for 9 months of all those years.
He always had that big smile and always singing to his favorites at the end of the day.
He would be concerned if anything happened to anyone on the league and would ask if they were okay. He had a big heart to go with that big smile. May he Rest In Peace. He will be very much missed and remembered by many.
Thoughts and prayers.🙏🏼

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.
