    Hello, My family and I are saddened to learn of Tony's passing. We are reminded of his friendly and fun spirit, as we look through family photographs from when he was our family's exchange student at Carleton College. Our hearts go out to Tony's family and friends. With sympathy, Mary Schrader and the Lyle and Betty Schrader Family of Dundas, MN

    Tony was taking pictures during tennis practice first year. He called me and told me he had a couple he thought I should see. I picked one out, and eventually it made it to newspapers and other publications in the Twin Cities. That led to other good things happening for me, and I'll always be grateful to Tony.
