From Cathy Johnsen...

I worked next to Tony’s department. He always said good morning and worked so hard. I didn’t get the opportunity to get to know him as well as some others at Hy-vee. I saw his smile and the heartfelt relationships he created with his customers and fellow co-orkers. My prayers for God’s healing goes out to his family,co-workers and friends. He was truly a kind soul.

From Jimmie...

not a day would go by that he walked by you and he wouldn’t speak to you. He is the “Poster” boy for hyvee that friendly smile he gave everyday. He made going to work easy i can only wish i had to work for him directly he will be missed very much and i would like to thank his family for letting him share his life with us.

From Brooke Dorn...

No words can make this sorrow time easier. Tony had lots to teach us yet at Kearney Hyvee. He was by far the hardest working department manager we had. He was always kind,made sure he said hello to everyone who was working, and was a very generous man and help those more than most realize. For many the shock has yet to wear off and denial is still very strong. I hope Hong and Tony’s family find peace and strength is this hard time. The world lost one of the good guys and everything is a little dimmer without him. God bless and my most heart felt condolences.

From Dan Cole...

I am very sorry for your loss. It can be hard to find the right words to say at a time like this. Thankfully, we can echo the stregthening thoughts that we find in the Bible. At Revelation 21:4 it tells us that the God of all comfort will soon do away with all suffering, sickness, tears, and death. Along with what we read at John 5: 28, 29 we have a solid hope for the future. Until then, may your loving memories bring you relief during this difficult time. Your family has my sincerest condolences.
