Tony came to las Vegas in 1959, sort of took my place at Paradise School in 7th grade since I moved across town that summer.  A lot of my friends like Rod Conner, Ric Scarff, Michele Goffstein, Pam Schofield, Bob Jones gravitated to Tony, a really likeable guy.  
He sat next to me at the back of Mr. Alleman/Mr. Knapp's American History class junior year.  It was first period, home room, and we'd usually get to class early so we could skim the assigned reading in case we got a quiz but usually ended up talking about his main interest, cars.  He loved his '64 Ford, 424 engine, over 400 hp, 4-speed of course, he entered at the drag races most weekends.  Halfway through the year on a whim he bought a 1930's era Ford he also took to the drags even though he'd blown second gear.  He complained he kept losing because of the fallout shifting from first to third.  He liked to throw out hilarious comments about foibles of classmates, teachers, and especially himself.  He knew I was romantically challenged so he kept after me to try my luck with a pretty girl in the class neither of us knew.  Sweet, completely natural, loved to laugh, wonderful company.
