Anthony would later develop a true lifelong passion for motor racing, specifically Formula One, to which he was an avid fan and viewer. Anthony had even participated at a driving school held at the Watkins Glen race course. Among his other interests were traveling, carpentry, and a strong love for animals. Anthony is survived by his dog, Patrick, whom he had loved and adored for the past 11 years.

Anthony was a well respected man throughout his community, and was deeply loved by family and friends alike. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association on Anthony’s behalf.

    We’re saddened deeply. We will miss his warm friendliness, wit and gentlemanly way. Tony was part of what made the MG Car Club as good as it is. We often followed him on driving tours. There will be a bit of a hole in the club without him! We’ll remember him fondly.
