So sorry for your loss. I was Tony's tenant for over 20 years. He was the best landlord I ever had. He will be sadly missed.

We lost a great guy. And a friend. I will miss his sense of humor. His philosophy on life. And great political discussions. Visited him at his house he handled my insurance for 55 years. I lived on Neptune Rd. Tony and his cousin Mazzie lived next door to each other. Our families Gavegnano,Benincasa,Albano,andMazzarella. We have known each other since birth. Tony had great stories of driving to CA with Bobby LoConte. And we have great memories of East Boston.

Tony was a good friend. I will miss him dearly. Especially the regular lunches we had at Maggio's. We would start with a customary toast with a glass of Merlot at his place. Then off to the restaurant. But, not before he would say to me" could you do something for me"? This typically was concerned with a computer problem, a minor house repair or more often the assembly of some new gadget he just purchased online (floor cleaning and exercise equipment was his favorite). He would sit there and curse the device while I assembled it. I would then show him how to operate it. He said he understood, and we laughed knowing maybe not so. He fought bravely against the many complications of diabetes and associated infections. We would discuss these, politics, and his Vietnam experiences. Whatever the situation his typical come back was "hey, what are you going to do'? Well, what I am going to do is pour a glass of Merlot and toast to the passing of my good friend, "To You Tony".
