I worked with Tony at UGI for many years and valued his friendship and work ethic. He always had a great smile and sense of humor. He was one of the co-founders of a UGI retirees breakfast club that has provided fun and fellowship and still continues to grow in members. What a great guy ! Rest In Peace, Tony.
