First of all, I need to send all of Tonys family & Loved ones my condolences. I will always remember the times Spent working with Tony We worked together at Dominos Pizza in the 80s. A bunch of us Dominoids, Dominos employees, a group of managers lived in an apartment together so we could all save some money. Tony ALWAYS made me laugh sooo hard.Oh my goodness! I cant remember exactly who had the baby squirrel when we were at the apartment? Every night the squirrel would sleep on top of the refrigerator and every time Tony would get up for a drink of water, without turning any lights on, and then the squirrel would pounce onto Tonys shoulder, and s then wed all hear Tony scream like he was being attacked by a 10 giant, then he realized it was the squirrel. I think the squirrel liked Tony because the squirrel ONLY jumped onto Tonys shoulders? Tony kept forgetting about the squirrel being on the fridge, and the same thing happened quite a few times. I have no idea how he could forget especially after that scream he let out. I will ALWAYS remember all the laughs️
