    We were so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing, he has been a ever present force of support to us with his IT support. But Tony was more than that, he always came with a smile and we loved his sense of humour! He was so happy when he shared the news of his marriage and life with Veronica. We will miss him.

    We will miss Tony. He was not only was our IT support at Kids & Teens Dentistry but he was also our friend! Rest in peace Tony!

    Tony was part of the Glebe Centre family for probably
    25 years. We lost count! We all had great affection for Tony and he went WAY FAR BEYOND what was required, always looking out for us.

    I will miss him popping his head into the doorway of my office to check that everything was okay and grabbing a coffee with him at Whole Foods. Tony was just a fine human being and was so generous with our organization. I will miss him so much.

    I hope that you know Veronica, how much he lit up when he spoke of you. He was very fortunate to have you in his life.


    Tony’s sudden passing was and still is a shock to us. He was our IT man at Abbotsford House of the Glebe Centre. He was very skilled at problem solving for us, providing options and following up to see if the computers, wifi or whatever correction he did was working for us. He worked hard, enthusiastically, and was a pleasure to work with on our team. I will miss our conversations about his love of Mexico and his family. He is sadly missed and I wish all his family and friends my deepest condolences.

    Tony will be greatly missed by the Glebe Centre nursing staff. Tony was always so patient with us, in getting things running back up when our systems were down.There was never any computer problem that Tony couldn’t fix!

  6. Janice Bridgewater says:

    I can’t imagine technology at the Glebe Centre without thinking of Tony. As a tech dinosaur I don’t know what I would have done without him to help me navigate all the changes over the years.
    His life was changed so positively when he met and married his wife. I have never seen a fellow so overjoyed ! My thoughts are with his family

  7. Jim Johnson says:

    Tony was Mr. IT for me and not only solved many problems but also advised and instructed. HOWEVER, he was foremost a friend and one whom I did and do respect. If you wanted everything to stop you just had to mention the magic word “VERICONA” AND he gave the most endearing and loving smile. For her and all the family my prayers and sympathy are extended and may you know an inner strength always through the love this man projected. Blessings.

  8. Carolyn Herfkens says:

    Tony was one of the roots that keep our tree standing tall at The Glebe Centre. It is so hard to believe we will not be seeing his smiling face coming from behind a computer screen. The last time I saw him he said, “long time no see stranger,” I will be sure to greet him the same one day.

  9. Lonelle Butler says:

    Tony always took the time to pop in my office and ask how I was doing. He was always very patient with my lack of computer knowledge. He treated me as if I truly understood what he was talking about. The last time I saw Tony he told me about a wonderful weekend he and his wife spent at a B&B. I will miss Tony and his engaging smile.

  10. Alice Cullen says:

    My deepest condolences to Tony’s wife, family, and friends. Tony had such a pleasant and friendly way about him. Once you met him the first time, it was easy to get to know him and have a small chit chat here and there. He was always so helpful when we had computer problems in laundry. That computer was as old as Moses and yet Tony still knew how to get it working again. I remember seeing Tony with his beautiful wife on Spark Street. He looked so happy with Veronica. It was nice to see him outside of work because it was more proof that he was happy not only at work but everywhere. I’m sure he brought a lot of smiles to a lot of people. I can tell by reading the previous comments. I will always remember Tony for his polite and friendly way of being. I wish more people were like him. He will be remembered at the Glebe Centre.

  11. Heidi Fluegel says:

    I am so sad to hear of Tony’s passing. He was a huge support for me in so many ways. He taught me so much about the IT world. He had such an amazing friendly, professionalism; no wonder he knew so many people and was loved by so many. He will be missed greatly. My deepest condolences to Veronica, family and friends.

  12. Susan L Zorz says:

    Tony was always such a support to me and everyone in Resident Services. His commitment to our home and to the people who live here was evident over his many years of service. More importantly he was part of the Glebe Centre family and will be missed tremendously. Please accept my deepest condolences to Veronica and Tony’s family and friends at this very difficult time.

  16. Beba Poole says:

    We were so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. He has been a friend and kind soul when it comes to helping a non techy nurse, on how to get back on track when things goes wrong with the system. Aways with a smile, and never said he was too busy to help, although he was clearly running all over the Glebe Centre at the time. Tony, you will be greatly missed, rest in peace my friend.
