    MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES TO THE ANGELILLO FAMILY. TONY & I WENT BACK TO THE 70’S AND DUE TO CHANGING TIMES & GETTING OLDER, WE DRIFTED APART FROM THE “GOOD OL DAYS”. HE WAS A GOOD MAN WITH HONEST VALUES. WHEN IT CAME TO HIS FREINDS,HE WOULD BE THERE IF YOU NEEDED HIM. WHILE IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN 35 YEARS SINCE I HAD SEEN TONY, I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM & HIS BIG “MITTS”.
    RIP TONY.
