I have been blessed with an awesome gift in the friendship of Tony. He personified what is a true Christian, friend, steadfast in caring for others, an instrument of Gods love and salvation displayed in all his actions and feelings displayed openly for all to see. I thank you Lord for the very time you gave me with this child of yours who so richly influenced my life to better serve you, Amen.

To Tony's family and friends in Michigan:
It has been years since I heard the name Tony Tramontelli, but recently read about his passing in the Gazette paper in Ossining. Tony and my late husband, Vincent, were in the Jaycees together and did many a Grapefruit Express Run. I hope he told you about this annual fundraiser and the fun we had doing it. Tony was a man to admire and always, always, was willing to lend a hand. I remember

Back in November 2011 I met Tony while I was working at Beaumont Hospital. I took the food orders by phone and one day he said to me."Dear you go ahead and pick a meal for me. I have had it all and cant seem to choose today." Surprised by this request, I proceeded to order a tray for his dinner and on the slip on the tray I wrote "I hope you enjoy your meal". Tony took the time

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said. For all of the challenges that he faced he carried himself honorably. A devout follower of Jesus Christ. A man that lived his faith. He was a man to be trusted. He was a good listener.
I met Tony several years ago at Kensington. We served together as Stephen Ministers. He had a tremendous capacity for empathy. I always felt encouraged after spending time with him. He is the kind

We all have those very special friends in life we are lucky enough to get to know and Tony was that kind of friend to me. Our family got to know Tony and Cory when we went on 2 mission trips with them through Kensington Church. One of the things that I thought was so special was the wonderful bond between Tony and Cory and what an awesome young man Cory is. I know the grounded young man Cory has

Tony liked to pray for people. I remember hearing the story about Tony's visit with a very sick child and his family down at Children's Hospital. As I recall, Tony prayed for the child's healing, and then stayed to talk with the parents for awhile until a nurse came in to take vitals. The nurse was amazed that the child seemed to be fine. She left to retreave a doctor who pronounced the child completely well! The Lord Jesus blessed so many people through Tony's efforts.

I remember when Tony contacted me for a job in his territory. We met and before we knew it two hours had gone by. We talked about a little bit of everything from work to family. One memory stands out from all our visits, it was the Christmas before he retired and he came in all excited. He had bought Cory his presents and hoped he would like them. It was a hat and bag for his guitar/music. As we

Tony: You were such a loving and giving man. I remember meeting you during your initial volunteer visit to a Habitat home. At this time I did not realize that you had poor health for you never showed it. When we spoke, you shared that you cannot do physical work but would love to help. Despite your pain you continued to help others by volunteering regularly as a site host. You were an angel here on earth and brought joy

I am grateful for every time I had the privilege of talking with you - whether it was to share our life experiences, recipes and cooking hints, our faith, laugh together, cry together, or just sit quietly together. I miss having an exchange with you every day - either by phone or text. I am grateful that you are in Heaven, free of illness and pain. We miss you here on Earth - but I know there's quite a celebration

Wow, Tony, I just read of your many acts of service, and all I can say is, I have a lot of catching up to do! You left big shoes to fill, my friend. And you can be sure that those that follow in those generous footsteps will be inspired by your life, and the example you set. My favorite memory is the most recent, bringing you lunch while you were having dialysis. I love to see someone enjoy the
