Lisa, I recently saw your dad's obituary in the paper and wanted to express my condolences. I knew he was an amazing man, but didn't know the extent of his achievements until reading about him. In the clinic, what struck me the most was his kindness, optimism, and independence. I'm glad that he was able to finish out his life at home, as he wanted to do. You were a great caregiver, being able to make that happen--although that was not an easy task. I feel privileged to have known him. Take care, Judy at PCA clinic

My condolences at the passing of your father. He was involved in hiring me at Presto (1983-2014, it worked out well :). He retired shortly after, but I fondly remember him as a kind and generous man. I will always be thankful for his help and thoughtfulness. We are praying for you and your family and especially for Tony.

Lisa, I was so saddened to hear the news of your Dad passing. I worked for him many years ago when I first started at Presto in 1972. He taught me so much in those early years. He was a wonderful man an incredible artist. I will never forget the many lunch hours listening to stories he told, ending with him sharing his cookies & dill pickles. Whenever I would run into him he always reminisced and ended with a hug. He was one of a kind. I will treasure these memories. Please know you are in my prayers.

Lisa, I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. What a great person, boss and friend. He was always so positive about things and always seemed to be at ease with himself and others. He was such an inspiration to me in my professional life and as a super artist. We bought one of his paintings and I look at it daily. We reconnected at your Mom's funeral and spoke several times after that. He actually came over to our house and we talked about many things that day.

I worked with Tony for a number of years in the Presto Art Department. He was a super person, boss, and of course artist.
