My dearest cousin Letty. We are so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. We send our deepest condolences and prayers of God's comfort to you and his family during this difficult time. I remember when my Mom would come and visit you from San Diego it was always a welcoming gathering of family around the table with delicious Filipino home cooked meals and singing karaoke 🎤 after And the first person to sing was Tony! He wasn't shy at all when he was singing in his mild voice. I will always remember him at his happiest times. May your dear Tony rest in peace...
Tony was such a bright light every day and always had that awesome smile on his face. His ability to sing and make people smile was far beyond measure. I had the pleasure of knowing him for 10 years and working with him for half of that. He was such a hard worker and I never heard him complain once about anything. I admired his work ethic, kind heart and genuine love for his friends and family. I enjoyed listening to him sign his songs and when he told stories of his family. There is a hole here but an addition in heaven that is rejoicing. You will forever be remembered and missed. Until we meet again Tony - you can rest (those of you that know Tony will understand as he always replied to the question on what he was doing for the weekend - "resting"). Prayers to his family during this time of loss. Hoping you find comfort in great memories and knowing how much he was loved.
Oh my dear Tony, I have such fond memories of working with you in gi. We would sing together we would have races to see who could make the beds in the recovery room the fastest. I always won by the way and I know tony is chuckling right now. Tony was a quiet man but when he got to know you he had the kindest voice and a huge heart. And how many jobs did you work to help out family members bless your heart Antonio you left this world way to early. God bless all your family that you so loved!!!!
Letty dear, my memory of your Tony will always be about how much he loved karaoke singing , helping other people , and being loved by you and everyone whose lives he touched . He was such a kind and gentle soul . The angels in heaven have gained a new singer .
I am sorry to learn about your husband's death. May you be encircled with family and friends at this time. May your memories live on forever in your heart.
Loving peace and prayers
I think Tony and I started in GI about the same time. I worked with him at the Eisenberg building, Charlton unit, and St Mary’s. We’d often talk about the Phillipians and his family still there.
Once at the December GI Christmas party, Tony led everyone in Christmas carols. Tony didn’t care that the rest of did not sing as well, he was just Happy to be our choir director.
I appreciated Tony’s friendly, kind nature, and work ethic. What a joyful man; Sing with the angels, Tony ! My sincere condolences, Letty and the Maralit family. Amy
I am so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. I worked with Tony at Gonda, as well as ST. Mary’s. He appeared shy, until he started singing, then his face just lit up and put a smile on all his co. workers. He always greeted me with a “good morning” or “have a good weekend.”
I share in your sadness as I remember Tony.
Antonio, aka Tony,aka Senor Romantico...
What can I say? I was saddened to hear of his passing.
Tony was the nicest man on the planet
I never saw him in a bad mood and always had a smile on his face.
He told me an odd story about how he didn't become a priest because he couldn't pass the physical...I never knew quite what that meant.
I didn't know there was a feats of strength test for becoming a priest.
I'll miss his singing of Elvis songs in the check room, and his laugh.
The world has lost a gentle soul with the biggest heart of anyone!!
My deepest sympathy to Tonys family. In working with Tony for many years I found him as a very easy going, willing to work, caring person. Loved his smile and beautiful voice when he would sing. I appreciated him as a coworker.He will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers to the Family
My deepest sympathies to Tony's family. I was fortunate to know and work with Tony for a few years and always enjoyed our talks and his comments about the bright sunny days! Tony always had a smile and kind words for people and kept himself busy at work all the time. He is truly missed.
