Default Tony, you WILL be missed..

To Amy, Tony Jr., Vlad, family, friends and VAF Family, my sincere condolences.

Tony was an excellent human being and a very good friend. I had the the extreme pleasure to meet him. He and I were partnered in a SportAir Workshop in Frederick, MD. I enjoyed working with him on our new adventure. I am building my -7A and he was building an -8.

He will be terribly missed by all. My heart and prayers to his family.

Godspeed, Tony.

Default Sad News

Found out on Saturday from Paul Tuttle the sad news. I wasn't able to make it to Stanley on the weekend that Tony, Vlad and everyone visited. Like everyone else I was shocked to learn about the sad news. The Vans community is a tight group that all share the same passion, so when we get news like this it hits hard.

My condelences to his family and friends and like it was said earlier, we are all her for you.

Like many of you who have expressed such sincere words about Tony, I would like to add my condolences to Tony's family. I did not know Tony although I have read many of his posts here. Cindy and I will be praying for him and his loved ones.

Very sad and shaking news. My condolences to his family, friends and the entire VAF community. I was keeping close eye to his RV8 build thread and his trips write ups and can not believe he passed away in another RV accident

Oh, Man! This is really a shame. I hadn't met Tony but everything he wrote here was of interest to me. His ATC wisdom will be missed. Condolences to his wife and son.

Default TKATC Tony

I am so sorry to hear this. I finally got to meet Tony a couple of weeks ago at an EAA fly in at Sky manor (N40) after reading and enjoying his post on here and trading emails and pm's over the last few months. I snapped a picture of him exiting "tweety bird" My condolences to his family.

You know....... Reading all these posts about Tony, I wish I could have actually known him. I'll miss seeing TKATC on VAF. Prayers for his family and friends.
