When Tony was a little boy, being the youngest of the Smilski Cousins’ Our Gang followed the pack . He was a sweet cherub - putting up with all the demands of the big cousins. He was a dress up doll , substitute dance partner, and first cowboy or Indian to fall.
Tony loved intensely his friends and family. All the pictures on his refrigerator were his special way to brag about them. He was a devoted son.
A sweet memory more recent memory was running through the Charlotte Airport trying to catch a Plane for a wedding in FL, Tony made a stop at the Carolina Panthers Team Store -of course he sang the entire Fight Song of the PHL Eagles—Fly Eagles Fly. Tony Smilski earned his wings and a little bell rang.

Dear Linda and Jean,

So sorry to hear of Tony's passing. Your family will always be part of our fondest memories. Tony will always be remembered for giving our son Joe, his first summer job which he enjoyed immensely.

Our deepest sympathy,
Pat, Paul and Joe Stankard
