  • So sad to hear of Tonys passing. I thoroughly enjoyed working next to him throughout my meat cutting career at ACME. Tony and I shared several similar interests such as shooting, hunting and fishing and was always willing to share his vast knowledge. Most unforgettable where his stories of his service during the Korean War. A true gentle giant once you got to know him. That unforgettable voice and trademark cigar I’m sure he’ll be missed by many ,RIP (Blow’m Up) Tony. Michael Malm
