Default I can't believe what I'm reading

Tony was building a -8, as am I. For a time I was just ahead of Tony in my build and was able to offer small bits of advice on those little gotcha's. Recently, Tony's build had rapidly progressed past mine and he was providing guidance to me.

While I never met Tony, he was a friendly, knowledgable guy. It is so very sad to read this. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tony and his family.

Blue skies TK.

Default A Good Man

Terrible News . . . Heartfelt Loss . . . Always Contributed . . . Always Helpful . . . Always Positive.

Tony was obviously A Good Man even to those of us who never had the privilege of meeting him personally . . . We feel we got to know Tony through his posts and messages . . . We miss him.

Default Sucks...

This kind of thing really makes you stop for a few. Love our hobby but dont forget its a dangerous one. Fly safe all.

So sorry for his family. What a terrible tragedy. Will miss his input on the forums.

Although I never met Tony, or even talked to him one-on-one, I felt like I knew him as part of the family. As many have said, he was always quick with a post - and had good information to share. I subscribed to his, "ask a controller" thread and always looked forward to his insight. My heart aches for Amy and Tony, Jr. - and all of his family - and pray for God's grace to be with them. Godspeed TK.
