Default Nice post Vlad for Tony

Vlad well said and our thoughts go out to you and his family. I will call you in a week or so, we can get together with the other guys to celebrate Tony's life and tell stories.

The services were very nice for Tony, he will be missed.

Take care

Guy and I are thinking about you from here at the Balloon Fiesta. You have many more second-cousins thinking about you.

Take care my friend, and join us again next year! I flew my RV out this year and this morning we did some air-to-air photos. I told Ralph thanks again for the ride he gave us last year. He really enjoyed meeting you.

Default Thanks !!!

Thanks Vlad for these moving words.

I didn't meet Tony personally but did exchange a few mails with him as a fellow air traffic controller and builder.

I can only say that despite the limited contacts I had the priviledge to have with him, I highly appreciated his inputs and followed with great interest his progress on the 8.

We would tease each other as to who would finish our build first, he going the quick build way and me going the standard way.

I'm still disturbed by his passing away, and I can only imagine how Amy, his family, you and his close friends must feel. I truly wish the best to all of you and if I can be of any help, please let me know...

He is to this date, the last to post on my "My RV Build Project", and as I continue my work and post my progress there, I will be thinking of him and always be inspired by his work as I finish my RV.

I also believe finishing his project would be a fantastic tribute to him.

Rest in peace Tony, my sincerest condolences and best regards to your family, your friends and Vlad.

Default Dear Lord

I've been out of the country for a few weeks and I'm just seeing this thread now. I can't believe what I'm reading. I flew with Tony a few times, and had he and Amy to my house one day to take a look at my build.

Amy - I am so, so, so sorry. Tony was one in a million, but I'm not telling you anything you don't know. Please let me know if there is anything I can do - you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Default TK Checklist

I was looking for this one for a while.
In 2011 After a visit to my hangar to check things out TK was making his way home.

Check out the matching pen !

Here they are leaving Stanley in June along with Rich and Dan. Looks like Humptybump just may have a similar video.

Smile Vlad for Tony

To my cousin Vlad - you are a brother and I am so pleased with your honorable and heartfelt memory of Tony. I know you miss him as much as I do. To all - cherish every moment and kiss those you love. Take nothing for granted.
My ATC opinion is NOT an official FAA recognized opinion, so any advice you get from me is ONLY my opinion.

Track my RV7A!!
