  2. Rest in Peace Tony. What I remember most about you is the scream of sheer joy you gave in a photo I made of the Emperors ball hockey bench after a goal was scored. You played the game with passion, with love and lived the same.

    My condolences and prayers go out to Tony and his family. I knew Tony in school and remember him as gentle, compassionate, caring and his laugh would make you smile that much more.

    My condolences go out to the entire Chaves family, especially Kelsey, Tiffany, and Emanuel. I went to school with Tony and played ball hockey him. For a 10 year period, he played a huge role in our lives. I say ‘our’ because there was a group of us (the Emperors) who cherished Tony, and valued his friendship. He was our ambassador. Always in the middle of every conversation. Always quick to laugh. Always concerned about everyone’s well-being. Although we were all close in age, Tony was like everyone’s big brother. He had a Babe Ruth persona (and like the Babe, he hit a Home Run or two, out of our neighborhood playground). Though I hadn’t seen Tony in over 20 years, I thought of him often; always fondly. I would love to relive those days again, just to see the smile on his face as he hits another homer. Thanks for helping us grow up, Tony. You were a great friend, to many.
