Tony and I grew up together on Sullivan Street, although we lost touch in the last decades. I have fond memories of him and his family. I was so verry sorry to hear of his, and his father's passing. May their memory be a blessing to all who knew and loved them.

Tony Fierro was an honorable and respected Navy veteran who served his country in Vietnam with distinction. As his counselor at the VA Medical Center for over 20 years I got to know him well. He was a caring, giving compassionate person. Always willing to help his fellow veteran. He was loved by his comrades. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

"I had seen Anthony around Spring and Thompson Streets for at least 10 years, but had only talked and became good friends with him 6 months or so ago. We would sit on the benches outside the park for hours listening to oldies on my boombox. Being only a few years older than me he really enjoyed it as much as I did and do. He also got a kick out of watching various passerbys reactions to the music, some of who would stop and dance or otherwise motion or signal that they liked it. Even he himself got up and danced on occasion!, bringing happy smiles to the people passing. :) It definitely will not be the same there without him. Rest in peace my good friend. I only wish that the friendship that developed between us began much sooner."
