Antonio left us too soon. He was such a respectable, lovable, big-hearted young man. He had a quiet spirit about him that left you knowing he loved you. Antonio loved music, drawing and the Eagles football team. He played baseball when he was younger but, most of all, he loved snowmobile riding and fourwheeling with his grampo Richard. Those two had a very special bond. Also, Antonio believed in and loved God more than anything.
