The loss of someone so dear to us as Tony was is never easy and we hope the cherished memories you have will sustain you with love and peace. We miss him terribly already. He will remain our hearts forever.

Tony is the father of one of my best friends since kindergarten Danny Williams. My earliest memory of him was at Danny’s birthday party in third grade. We would all lie on the floor and he would stand over us and try and make us laugh just by standing there. It worked every time.
As we got older he would continue to make us laugh by saying to us when we entered the room “Was there a prison break? How’d you all get here?”
Tony and Sheila had a house that was always welcome for us to be in growing up. As rambunctious high schoolers we would make a ton of noise in Danny’s basement on weekend nights until we would hear a stern voice from the top of the stairs say “Danny, can you come up here please?” Then Danny would say to us “Guys, my Dad!” and we’d shut up. Not once did Tony ever yell at us or get mad, he knew boys will be boys.
Tony, your legacy and humor will live on with Danny’s friends who grew up in Olney. To this day, twenty five years after high school, anytime the high school gang is all being loud together Danny will crack us up when he interjects with “Guys, my Dad!”

Tony's humor, along with his ability to see what many of us had yet to figure out, was why his staff not just loved our jobs, but loved and respected him.

Tony and Robin's family was just the most wonderful family I have ever known. Sally, Bill, Robin were each sweet, funny,smart and enlightened. The presence of the Williams family in my life made quite a lasting mark. I wanted what they had, which had nothing to do with money or status. They had love for each other with enough left over to share with whoever came to their door.
What a wonderfully funny,good guy Robin had for a brother.

Tony was one of the first members of the Kiwanis Club of Cape May when I joined to make me feel welcomed and part of the "family". Over the years we have come to appreciate his warmth and gentle humor and untiring dedication to his friends and community. He will be missed by all.

When Tony joined the Kiwanis club he was very interested in our poker group. He watched for many weeks before actually joining us because he was sizing up the prey. He was a great poker player and I will miss losing to him

Tony was a gentlemen and an inspiration to us. His personality lit up the room and he was such a sincere dedicated man to the Kiwanis Club of Cape May. He was a former President of Kiwanis and he inspired me to be the current President of the Club.

Dear wonderful Tony. Ray and I feel blessed to have been a part of Tony's extended family for the past 16+years. We will miss him terribly. His kind, loving witty soul shines on in his wonderful children and his beautiful grandchildren. We will remember you with love and a smile every time the kids make a Poppy "Combiinktion". Hoping all the wonderful memories will carry you all through the sadness and sustain you through the times to come. Love you all so very much!
