    My condolences to the family on Tony’s passing. I worked with Tony during the early 80’s when I was a very young man. He was always kind, jovial and encouraged me to go back to school which I did. Thanks Tony for the good advice and pleasant memories.

    Harvey, so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how difficult it is to say goodbye and no matter how much time we have with our parents, it seems not to be enough. I hope you were able to really enjoy your dad is his later years. I noticed his hometown was San Giovanni. That is where my brother in law, Tony Silletta was born. I bet your dad knew Tony’s parents. Tony’s mom, Rosa Silletta still lives in Victoria B.C. Dollars to donuts they went to school together! God Bless and watch over your dad and all his family. Joe
