Dear Roseanne, Sharon and Family - so many wonderful memories with the man who successfully wore so many hats as husband, father, grandfather, uncle, friend, coworker, and the ultimate faithful Phili sports fan. His arms were always open to his friends and family. A pleasure to be around and always welcoming. My family was blessed to call him family and friend. We will miss you Tony. Love from the Kuykendall/Sheehans
