Navy 75-97 Army 97-05... Tony was diagnosied with ALS in November of 2004. He had been in Afganistan when he begun showing systems of ALS. After seeing many doctors & sitting through hours of tests, we were given the news that changed our lives forever. Over the next 6.5 years, Tony went from being the strongest man I knew to needing 24 hour care. My family & I cared for Tony at his Glen Burnie home until the very last day of his life. On July 16, 2011 at 11:35pm, all of our lives changed again. Tony lost his fight with ALS & was is now our heavenly angel. We miss and love you Daddy!
