Diane, Jennifer, Nicole and Vicki, We are so very sorry to hear about Tony's passing. What a void there is going to be. We always enjoyed catching up and talking when he came into the store working on a problem. So happy that he was able to know a grandchild whom I know lit up his life. Tell little Miss Aurora all of Papas stories. We pray for strength and peace for each of you. Love and God Bless.

Tony Clark was a great individual. We both served together in the 3647th Maintenance Company, Virginia Army National Guard in Blackstone,VA. He was a solid leader and mentor to many. May God provide comfort and solace to his family at this time.

My friend always.

I smile when I think of the times Tony has told me, up in the audio booth at church, when things would go "sideways," He would say, "Don't worry about it. They are not paying you." I learned so much from him. He could do pretty much anything and knew something about everything. Harvey and I enjoyed knowing him and we love your family, Diane!
