Tony was a big brother to me for so many years, and I treasure the time we shared our love of music - especially Triumph, Styx, and Rush. He helped guide me through the tumultuous teenage years, and I am better off for having known him. I pray for comfort for the Morelli family, Tony's mother and sisters, and his children (my niece and nephew).
Shawna Frost

My memories of Tony are that he always had a smile and infectious laugh. We played hockey together and I worked for his Dad and uncles at the restaurant. Lived down the street from me so we saw each other until we both moved away. Treasure those memories and those of his family, all sincere and loving folks. God certainly blessed us by bringing him into our lives and we pray and hope to see him again in Glory! Sincere condolences to his family,

My condolences to Tony’s family. He was the kindest person I knew and each year he would reach out to say, ‘Happy Birthday old friend!’ I’ll for sure be missing you next year ‘old friend.’ May all your memories bring you comfort.

To the family and friends of Tony Morelli, Tony was our favorite vegetarian, plant nurturer, and fun loving neighbor. He greeted everyone with a smile and always had a positive attitude. He was the best neighbor you could ask for. Tony didn't collect things, instead he cherished friendships, old and new, and accepted everyone without any judgement. We wish he had more time to fulfill all his dreams. We are thankful for having him in our lives. Our deepest sympathy to those he leaves behind.
Denis and Diane Boucher

Blessings to your family. We were new neighbors of Tony's on Graham St. in Gardner. Loved to say hello to him almost every day. He was always cheerful and friendly. Yes, we saw that beautiful smile.

My husband and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Tony. Our hearts were broken when we heard the terrible news. Our businesses were within walking distance so we had the pleasure of seeing his beautiful smile often. Tony's artistic detail lettering on the windows of our store and vehicles will be a constant reminder of our wonderful memories of our friendship. Rest in peace dear friend. Love Ron and Cheryl, from Match Shot Firearms.

Tony and I used to kid each other about having long hair. We both have long hair and we were the last ones in our class and we refuse to cut our hair. I've known him all my life since third grade. He will be missed and my condolences to his family and children.
