Thought we had time

Tony and I were good friends at Northern Arizona University. We hung out together over the years 1966 to 1968. I had served in the Army in 1961 to 1964, and we talked often about Tony"s desire to fly for the Navy. I got married in January 1967, and didn't spend as much time with the guys, but
Tony would come over some times on a Friday night and ask if I could come out and play (my wife never said no). The LQ in Flagstaff was our place (pitchers were half priced Fridays - I think).
Tony was one of the best individuals I've ever know, it was crushing to know he was gone. I really enjoyed his friendship, and wished we'd had the opportunity to continue. God Bless you, man.

Miss you fellow Seawolf

Tony and I went to gunnery school together at Ft. Rucker and we went out horseback riding one weekend. We went to Viet Nam on the same flight. When we stopped in Japan on the way over, he bought a jacket for his nephew and left it under the seat in the airport. He was really upset with himself. I had the duty or to be temporarily assigned to his AO the day they found his inverted aircraft and we flew protective cover for the ground recovery forces. I didn't know then it was Tony, but found out soon thereafter, and it was the saddest day of my year-long tour. He had a great sense of humor, was a good friend even though I didn't know him long, and he was just a great guy, I often wonder what he would have become, but have no doubt he would have been a success.
