Sending love to you from your California cousins. We will always remember Tony. He had a great sense of humor and a generous spirit. I'm so glad that you were able to spend your lives together. I will always remember him coming to pick us up at the Harrisburg Airport in the middle of a snow storm when the roads were a mess. He had a four-wheeled drive truck so we weren't stuck at the airport. That was when we came back for Grammy"s funeral. Thinking and praying for the family and for Tony's family and friends.

Dear Nancy and Heather...
What heartbreaking news to hear of Tony’s passing - we are so deeply sorry !
There are not enough words to express what an incredible person, neighbor and friend Tony was - not only to our dad (Tony Wolfe) - but to our entire family!
Well Drive in Camp Hill was never the same after you moved - what great memories !
We are holding you close in our hearts !
I know he and our dad now have ringside seats watching all the great fights!
May god bless you with strength!

Well my the journey ends.......... In the 20+ years of our friendship, we've walked row after row at the Carlisle auto shows. Spent an evening or two at Bike night in York. Laughed as we ate at Visaggio's, The Glass Lounge.
Daytona 500 partys and PPV boxing events.
Seen my share of cars and campers come and go. You changed them like most people change socks!
Truly, one of a kind. You will be greatly missed.

To the greatest father who always made people laugh, cracked jokes, lended a helping hand to anyone and everyone and most impotantly loved his friends and family unconditionally. To all the great memories from camping, cruising, going to car shows and simply listening to oldies in the car with the windows down. You fought a courageous fight with stomach cancer. You will always be the #1 man in my life. You are pain free now and in heaven looking down and protecting us all from above. I love you now and forever. You will forever be in my heart.

Although I have considered Nancy a good friend, it is Tony I have gotten to know better over the last several years. I will always remember how he teased me! He gave as much as he received. He fought such a valiant fight and now is finding peace in his heavenly home.
