Antonio was a great guy with an awesome sense of humor. While at with him at kroger he was always quick with a joke but also quick with a kind word when needed. Always gave me good advice. He was missed when he left kroger and will always be missed. Sorry for the loss of such a good man. Love from the Brushaber family.

I really did not know Tony but he umpired many games that I played and watched. He was such a friendly, kind man and I was always happy to see his smiling face behind the plate. He brought a level of happiness and fun to so many with his radiate smile, words of encouragement and praise at each game he attended. I am very sorry for your loss. He will be missed.

Antonio was an absolute sweetheart. He was a very gentle guy that I was fortunate to get to know while he worked at Kroger. I was so shocked and heartbroken to hear about his passing. I am still speechless. This man had a big heart and was always so helpful and caring. I don’t know what else to say. I truly hope his loved ones will be comforted during this terribly difficult time. 😭

Antonio was such a GREAT man! Our paths crossed at Kroger, but we would keep in touch from time to time. He was always rooting for me to stay strong for my children! He is someone you could never forget. He was so full of life and just wanted the best for everyone! This breaks my heart so much for anyone who knew him! I'm so sorry for your loss, may God wrap his arms around you in your time of need!
