  1. I only knew Tony for a short time. He was a wonderful man. Very friendly and always appreciative of our visits. I am a Deacon from St. Mary’s and we bring communion to the residents at Elm Croft assisted living. Tony came to our Communion Services when he could and if he wasn’t able to we visited him in his room. He had a great smile! I will miss him.

  2. I have known Mr. Tony since he opened Tony’s Bar Supply in 1963. I was only 17 at the time and he became a customer of ours for over 50 years. I looked forward to seeing him every time I came in even after he retired. Even after he retired I would see him when I delivered to the store. I only knew Gary, Norm and Morgan but I know all of the family will miss him very much.

  4. I had the good fortune to work with Tony for several years and he always welcomed you with a smile and a friendly Hello. He was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. His attitude blossomed with his family and I can truly say that Tony Crapitto was a friend.

    My condolences and prayers go out to his family.

  5. I met Tony back when my mother (Maria C. Garcia) and all my brothers use to live next door to him in League City, TX. We had the pleasure of his presence when he would greet us outside of our homes and occassionally occasionally talk with my mother and I. He was truly a great man and he will be missed.

  6. My seven sons and I were blessed to have Tony and Trudy as our neighbors for seven years and as our friends from then, on. Tony, myself and a couple of my son’s kept in touch and I would go by and take Tony a plate of whatever I cooked that day; he was always grateful and had my number next to his phone in case he needed me. I enjoyed taking care of Tony for several months; we made each other laugh and I asked him questions about his past, his youth, his marriage to Trudy, his family; I learned quite a bit and he liked talking about his life. I would bring him a surprise meal or snack at each visit; his favorite was anything BBQ and watermelon! So blessed to have known Tony, Trudy and family!
