  14. Prayers go out to Anthony and Kima. My privilege to have worked, played golf and played softball with T since the late 80’s. A more gracious person you will not meet.

So glad we didn’t all have smartphones with cameras back then. Oh the moments that could have been recorded!! Rest in peace, my friend. Praying for you, Kima and your family. ~D

  18. We’ll never understand why you were called to heaven so early. Obviously another smiling face and warm hearted angel was needed up there.

    I can’t count the times he helped me through the years at Macys.

  22. So many fond memories, where do I start? I remember the snowball fight in the parking lot of the bar and grill during one of our first May Dept.stores transition trips (I think I still have a picture of Kima’s snow angel from that one). The time at the Bridgeton Distribution Ctr. we went out after a long day of transition work and laughing until we cried at finding out who was ordering the Fuzzy Navel drinks. These memories and so many more I will continue to cherish. I will miss you my friend.

  28. Whether it was an MFD rollout, a DC wiring RFP, a golf tournament or after work gathering, Tony made the occasion fun. I can still see him sneaking up on us Purchasing ladies, tossing that ball attached to a rubber band, grinning and laughing. He didn’t care for red tape or office politics, but he sure cared for people. I’m glad to have known Tony as a friend. My heart goes out to the family. I enjoyed hearing Tony talk about his son through the years; he was so proud. Treasure the memories and lean on those around you. God be with you all.
