    What a wonderful man and influence on youth and the value of athletics on their lives. I had the pleasure of working with Tony at a few state volleyball tourneys…those times form great memories. My condolences to Kathy and family.

    Tony and his family always made me feel at home in Montana. I’ve never met a kinder man. Although we lost touch in the past several years, I’ve often thought about him. Here’s to a great, great man!
    Rest in peace Tony.
