    Phil, my name is Rhianne and I work at Mabel’s. I’ve just heard that the EMS have arrived where Tony sits and things don’t look good, I think they are taking him to St. Joe’s.

  2. Alex Says:

    Philip…Tony is in really bad shape today. He was taken to St.Joes with barely a pulse. EMS arrived and performed CPR at 4.00pm or so. It was quite bad this time.

  3. Chris Says:

    From what I gathered, he passed away. Rest in peace Tony. The neighbourhood won’t be the same without you.

    Everytime I passed him on the street, he always said, Hello dear. I’ll miss him.

    He was my Ronci ‘hey guy’ and my information man. It wasn’t a Ronci morning or afternoon without getting the scoop on Ronci Construction from Toni. I’ll Never forget him. He was the friendliest homeless guy I ever met. Always kept up a decent appearance and was polite with everyone from what I saw. You’ll be missed Tony. May you find your way to the “big rock candy mountains” in the clouds.

    I feel so sad that I didn’t get to know him better. He was always so kind and always had a friendly hello. I remember finding 40$ on the street one day, seeing Tony at Timothy’s and running over to give him a portion of my findings. He was very appreciative and I was glad to share my winfall. He’ll be missed on Roncy and thought of often!

    Hey there, big guy. I finally found out your name. I was in St. Joe’s myself with three fractures from an accident the morning they brought you in but I can’t remember if I was still in the ER after 4:00 pm when you arrived. My daughter told me you had passed away when I got out Friday evening. I’ll really miss running into you here and there and chatting for a bit, and I’m sure glad you liked those socks I gave you.
