My deepest condolences to the Zavaglia of your loss.
Tony, Was a neighbor of ours in his younger years. Always a great kid and I had run into to him , we chatted a bit. I asked about his family and he asked of my sons. My son called me with sad news, I was very taken of this.
God I ask you to guide him along with you in watching all of whom he left behind. And to guide his parent through this with strength.
Losing a child before us is very deep pain.
God bless is parents and siblings during this sad time.
Love you Tony!😢 Eddie & Kim, Chris, Jon-Jon

Tony I remember working with you at heritage commons.... And Friday nights I would come up to the house have a few drinks and play beer pong.... I always lost.... I remember labor day we were short staffed at work u didn't work there but stopped by and helped us out.... Garden parties at heritage commons were amazing.... We would call each other just to check on one another.... You became lil brother and I loved you and your family every since.... I miss you so much.... My mom loves her Zavaglia guys.... I love you and this isn't goodbye just farewell til we meet again.... Can't believe I'm writing this 😭😭
