I’m so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I worked with Tony at Dean Witter and have very fond memories of him. Tony always had his ear to the ground and knew what was going on around the office. Tony would come by and would say things like “whattya know, Whattya see, Whattya hear.” I’d tell Tony...you may be wrong 1/2 the time, but damn it you’re always 1/2 right! Rest In Peace Tony and my condolences to Bruce and the family.

My sincerest condolences to the Cecero family on the loss of Tony. I worked with Tony at MS and he was truly a one of a kind gem. He made everyone laugh. So many fond memories, especially all the nicknames he had for so many of us. I will never forget mine "Buffy the 1099 slayer" because I handled the IRS Forms 1099 mailing. I even remember his youngest daughter's nickname "Baby Lala". Sending healing prayers to all of you for strength and comfort at this difficult time. Sincerely Helene
