Tony spent days that turned into nights and nights that turned into days working as a tow truck driver. Many years and memories later Tony succeeded in the Heavy Equipment Operators course and found work in Alberta. In the colder months Tony plowed snow for Dynamic Landscaping. Tony was a volunteer fire fighter with the Ootischenia Fire Department, a volunteer with Castlegar Search and Rescue, a member of Citizens On Patrol, an active member of the Kinnaird Park Community Church, and a volunteer with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron 581.
