Tony was born in Montreal, Canada and moved to the United States when he was two years old. His family moved from Union to Millburn in the summer of 1968. Tony is a graduate of Millburn HS.

Tony did many interesting projects as an Electrical Contractor; schools, public libraries, police stations, court houses, and hospitals, just to name a few. His loyalty, honesty and dedication to excellence earned him a pristine reputation in his field. He will be greatly missed.
Tony was happiest when he was skiing, golfing, boating, flying as a pilot, and spending time with his family and friends.
