    Tony was a great guy! He was a gentleman. He was always there to help out for judo --- from tournaments to clinics. He was a class act! He always had a smile when I saw him. I will miss him.

    Hello Sensei Heiko. We were just at one of his clinics. I am not sure how he passed but apparently it was in his office:

    It's pretty sad.
