That's awful. I talked to Tony one-on-one years ago for a business I was involved with. He was a sharp cookie, and a friendly, upbeat guy too.

This is horrible. This poor man invested so much into Las Vegas, especially Downtown Las Vegas. This includes the Life is Beautiful festival and all the redevelopment alongside it. He was just a few years older than me, just retired, and living a dream. Such a great man, generous with his time and fortune.

Only the good die young.
