I’m very saddened to hear of Tony’s passing
I’ve known Tony, Debbie, Christopher and my Best Friend Candice for over 27 years.
Tony was a wonderful Husband, Father and Grandfather.
I have a lot of memories I will forever cherish.
Sunday’s at their home was always so nice.
He and Debbie would prepare a nice meal for us all.
They all made you feel like you were family also.
I’m lucky to have known such a great man. He was a hard worker, honest and would help anyone he could if needed.
I love the White family as much as I do my very own.
I’m praying for you all and pray that Tony is resting in peace .
I’m sending my condolences to you all.
Love you all!

So shocked to hear of Tony's sudden passing. We worked together at Kaydon on the 3rd shift. Tony was a talker who could talk your ear off if you let him. I really enjoyed the stories of his life he used to share. He was a great guy to work with and will be missed. Rest easy my friend!
