God bless you Dad. I know you kicked that walker down the mountainside and are running as fast as you can to go fishing with everyone that has gone before you. Love you forever and always, Debbie

What an honor to have known such an amazing man. Tony’s love for the Denver Broncos was unparalleled. Anytime I wanted to talk local sports, Tony knew more than most. I am happy to have shared some special memories at Seminoe over the last few years, and so glad I had the opportunity. Your family loved you tremendously and you have created such a caring legacy for your grandkids. You will be greatly missed.

Tony was not only a wonderful talented co-worker but a friend as well. Tony helped get Guy’s Floor Service on the map. May he find peace in heaven.

Tony, We’re so sorry your gone but so thankful we knew you! We’ll always cherish the time we spent with you fishing up in Wyoming and enjoying your company, smiles and laughs. Grayson was just a little dude then but he says he remembers showing you some of his hot wheel cars and you knew what all of them were. We wish you speedy travels to see all of your friends and relatives who have passed before you. You are in our thoughts and prayers, Greg, Donna, Kaleigh and Grayson Gerlich.

I am so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. Tony, helped break me into this business of floor covering in about 1982. I spent many days with him working in Aspen on the Jerome Motel and the little Nell. Tony was one of the nicest people I have ever known. He was always patient with me and took time to teach me. I have very fond memories of him and think of him often. May he rest in peace until we see each other again.

It’s been 25 years since seeing Tony, but upon his passing I immediately remembered him. Three words come to mind when thinking of Tony; Strength, Integrity and Humility. Tony was a man’s man, someone who encouraged us younger guys and taught us patiently. May you rest in peace Tony
