Heartfelt condolences to the entire Guerriero family. Tony was a kind, compassionate man and friend to all. I first met Tony after he caught my friends and I sneaking in to Muzzy Field to watch baseball games. He would reprimand us, always with a smile on his face, warn us not to do it again, and then let us get in the game without paying. Of course this happened again numerous times over the years. As an adult I became a close friend of Tony. He was so proud of his Italian heritage and always made time to talk to everyone who knew him. May all the happy, loving memories you have of Tony ease your pain.

I was Tony's next door neighbor when I lived on Country Lane. I always enjoyed the conversations with him about the NFL or the MLB. And he had some good stories to tell about sports back in the day. He was kind to my then young children. He was a Good Man. My condolences
