To the Steele family I wish to give my sincerest condolences.
While I never met Tony in person, I considered him a friend. I came to know him through mutual friends over the internet and via the billiards community. He was a modern day pen pal. I will sorely miss our daily emails and discussions on his Tennis team, billiards, cue builders,firearms and the Possums. All of which were passions of his.
The impression I got of Tony over these past few years was that of a caring man that loved his family, friends and doted especially on his grandchild. He will be missed.
Again my most sincere sympathies and condolences.
God keep you close my friend.

Tony and I became friends about 8 years ago through a cue he purchased from me on Ebay. We had since spoken about most everything you can imagine by email and phone, but I never made it to his ring game. I have missed him throughout his recent battle with cancer and will miss him in the future.
I hope the beer is cold and banks are good and the tables are level wherever he winds up, and will see him there one day no doubt.
To Carol and his family and that redheaded granddaughter I saw so many pictures of, my thoughts are with you all. I wish hugs for you all

I never did get around to meeting Tony, but still considered him a very good friend. He had invited me to visit many times, but somehow that time never came and that is my loss. All of us who came to know Tony will miss him always.

I learned alot about this hobby/passion of ours from Tony when i first got started back around 1998. Tony invited me to his house to play, showed me some of his cues, gave me some tips, and helped me get started.
Nubs, i know he thought your cues were the best playing cues he ever had, he made that comment to me more than once. i still have my Nova cue, its not going anywhere either!

Thank you for the oppertunity to let the family know what an honor it was to know Tony. I'm sure you will miss him very much. He was a person that gave and recieved from the Heart. It breaks my heart to see a friend like Tony pass. He had so much he loved to do. His family & dog meant so much to him. He has been good friends to me for almost 10 yrs. People like Tony are a rare breed. The world will be a a loss without him. He once put a greeting on one of the Bunker buster bombs for me. Bombs away!! I'll never forget him auctioning my Hoppe cue on ebay after I sent him pics of it. He had a great sense of humor. I wish we could have made it to see him this last summer. I will be sure to tip a glass to him and remember him often with a smile. I'm Proud to have called him my friend. A word I do not use lightly. Gods Speed Tony. A better place awaits you.
My sincerest condolences. Your friend, Bob Moss
