    I met Tony when I was 18 and started at Marsh in the Deli. Tony as I remember always had a smile, a kind word and a twinkle in his eyes. Tony made time for everyone, and treated all with respect and dignity. He helped train me in the meat dept., when I had to wrap bacon every Tuesday night. He never lost patients and always gave me encouragement. Even though I had lost touch with Tony when I quit Marsh in 1981, I never forgot his kindness. Tony will be truly missed.

    I was very sad to hear the news of Tony’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Herport family during this difficult time. Tony was married to my aunt a long time ago. I have always respected this man dearly. His smile was so contagious and his warm, loving, fun personality was always a joy to be around. I will always remember his awesome homemade chocolate milkshakes and the kiddie cocktails he made for me at the Moose Lodge when I was a kid. RIP Tony. You will sadly be missed.
