First Mr. Jaslowski was my friend Mike's Dad, then my coach, mentor, coworker and as I became an adult friend. I played baseball on his team, we worked together as bricklayers, I was a fireman and worked for him at fires, and as a friend I valued his advise. Also I am lucky enough to have been able to have a visit from him very recently which I will always cherish and remember.
Rest In Peace Tony.
