Tony was an advocate for nature and loved to be outdoors, as its wide-open freedom appealed greatly to him. Going on long walks gave Tony much needed headspace and helped him connect with himself. He held a passion for being creative and was quite a talented sketch and drawing artist. He also loved to play the ukelele (and was pretty good at it), he enjoyed thinking of unique, useful things and then building them, and he enjoyed collecting unique rocks and gemstones found on his walks; from which he would create beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. And, of course, he’d never turn down spending time with good friends.

Memorial donations may be given to Tony’s family.
