I'm so sorry to learn of Tony's passing. I remember the Tringali brothers from the early days when my father, John Tiliakos, built their shrimp boats. Tony was a very kind man as well as all the family. I remember my father speaking so highly of the family. Both our family go way back in time & I will always remember them with a grand fondness.
So sorry to hear of Tony's death. My husband met Tony's through a real estate transaction. They became good friends and often went on day trips together probably checking out Tony's real estate and check-in out the lunch Buffett's along the way. We all loved Tony and spent many happy hour eating down at the docks. One of the last old timers that made fernandina the way it was simple and unique! So sorry I didn't know until now. I would've been at the services. May he rest in peace.
Tony was a good man. He was a good friend of my father and was a great influence in my life. He always had time for anyone and was always willing to help. I knew all of his brothers and they were hard working and generous family. I’m sure he is heaven with all of the people that called front street home.
Papa T was one of the best humans on Earth. May he Rest In Peace. Greatly missed!
The Tringali family legacy that established the Shrimping Business in our Community is everlasting. My last visit with Tony at Quality Health, I shared a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. His mind was sharp offering me his normal greeting in our common Italian Sicilian phases. I will always remember Tony, as my friend who kept his family values and his family contributions to Fernandina Beach.
