    My condolences to friends and family of my old friend Tony. I graduated from Carey High School with Tony in June 1960. Shortly after graduation Tony left Carey to attend DeVry Institute of Electronics in Chicago. I worked in Carey that summer until September when I moved to Chicago to start my training at DeVry. By the time I got there Tony was pretty well established. Part of the deal with DeVry was they would find you a job and a place to live. Tony’s job was with cook electric and his place to live was on Shefield Avenue just around the corner from Wriggle Field. DeVry must have had a limited playbook because they got me a job the same place and a room at the same place. ( I later worked with Tony for several years Rauland Corperation, AKA Zenith TV). Our living quarters consisted of 2 men to a room with 3 to 5 rooms to a bath & kitchen. That got old real quick. Prior to my arrival Tony had made friends with Ron Perry & Harvey Grahn who lived in the same complex. The 4 of us found an apartment at 945 Gordon Terrace several blocks north of Wriggle Field. I remember Tony being an avid reader and he was always interested in finding out how things worked. Although I haven’t seen Tony the mid to late 1960’s I will have a warm place in my heart for him. All my best Ben Rice
