Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest condolences. I used to live above the hobby shop – i remember being little and going downstairs and learning bout the trains – i remember the big lionel trains- i have 3 little boys 9 -7 -3 and wen my 9 yr old talks about models or trains i always go back to my stories about how tony used to show me how all that worked and would try to teach me the history on models and trains. I remember wen the hobby shop moved accross the street to 508 broad ave – where i lived – and tony remodeled and my mom would get worried that i would get hurt and get mad at my dad for letting me help and some how tony would calm her down
    It is a great lose to the young and old that he has passed on – HE WILL BE MISSED BY MANY

    My deepest sympathy and condolences to the entire family
