  • I knew Tony from when worked together at Sandy Springs , SC ( Anderson -US2)
    Tony was a valuable part of my team at US 2 as the Engineering Manager for Service Z .
    He went on to become a leading expert in rubber mixing .
    He was a great friend . We traveled to France many times on business related to our work.
    He was fun to be around . Our French counterparts loved and respected him.
    As did those in the US.
    Boy did he love good food especially French dishes.
    Goodbye my dear friend until we meet again .
    Thoughts and prayers for the family.
