Tony

I had known Tony for 20 years. We began together on an obscure and completely forgotten local Washington DC show called On the Record, or something like that. From the start I could see that Tony was blessed not just with brains and great looks — he had a far rarer virtue: God gave him the most superior temperament I’ve ever seen in a man of his prominence. Unfailingly gracious, sweet, and genuine, he was always a pleasure to be around. We kept in touch over the years and when he was hit by cancer, the entire world saw that what had at first seemed like just niceness was something far more, something approaching greatness. Constantly dismissive of his woes and worries, steadfast in his faith in a loving God, he bore his affliction with a most surpassing grace. We pray for Jill and his children while also being thankful for his incredible example. RIP
