    Shocked and very sad to learn of Tony’s passing! Tony grew up with my son Nick Doyle, or “Cornbread” as Tony loved to call Nick, and they were close friends all through school in Adrian, MI. Tony spent a lot of time at my house hanging with Nick and their buddies and I grew to love Tony and considered him as a second son. Tony could drive me crazy one moment and then come up and give me the biggest hug the next. Or he’d ask if he could help me with the dishes or taking out the trash. Then turn around again and crack a joke. My prayers and love are for his children and his family in Adrian. Rest in Eternal Peace Tony, as you’ve earned your angel wings!
