Our thoughts are with you Zach, Paige and Linda.

From: Del Chobotar
Relation: A friend from long ago

Our ways parted a few years after high school but I always counted Tony as a friend. We did a lot when we were younger and foolish and I have great memories of some of our daring deeds. It was fun to help when they were setting up the winery and years later to be able to buy the best.
My condolences go out to the family and friends.
Tony will always live on in our memories.

Del.

Just found out about Tony’s passing. I am so sorry to hear of it . Tony was the only connection I had left (tenuous though it was) with the town of Osoyoos. He was one of the nicest people I ever knew.

Even more shocking to learn that he was the last of the family – and that Silvo even passed before their mother Mary. Very sad news. My deep condolences to Linda, Zach and Paige.
