This is heartbreaking news. Tony was a wonderfully kind, extraordinarily talented, grateful and generous man. May he rest in peace and may Sia and their family be comforted.

Condolences to Tony's family.

Whatever happened to the hydro electric renewable energy project at the chain dam in Williams Township, Lehigh Canal that the County was funding?

Having the privilege of working with many Northampton County officials, I must say Tony was top notch. May you rest in peace my friend.
