Dear Drago Family,
I came to know Tony when I worked for the town of Ocean Gate in 2016. Tony was the type of person who you only meet a handful of times in life, caring, genuine, exuberant, and immeasurably funny. I had the great pleasure and honor of knowing your husband and father, he is a man I greatly admire and one I hope to emulate in my own life. We all know Tony's passion was cars but his greatest love was you. The pride and joy that would spread across his face as he talked about his loved ones brought an infectious sense of joy to our conversations, his passing is heartbreaking and an incredible loss to so many. My heart breaks for you in this time but I hope you hold tight to his love for his you all. You are in the thoughts and prayers of my family and I. I will miss that great man.
Paula, Sarah, and Anthony,
There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss and the sorrow.
Paula, I have known you since I was 4 years old and loved you from day 1. Much love and prayers sent across the miles.
Paula, Anthony & Sarah,

I knew Tony since he moved to Ocean Gate. He was a good man with a huge kind heart.He was a hard worker and cared a lot. I am sorry to hear this news and he and his family are in my prayers. Mike Graf
I clearly recall Tony driving his mother in law, my cousin, to a family gathering when she had no other means of transportation. Knowing how important it was to me and our other cousins, he took it upon himself to get her there on what was a workday for him. No excuses. Just follow through. He not only brought Dolores, but shared his keen sense of humor with us all. He will be sorely missed. Rest in PEACE.
Dear Paula, Anthony, and Sarah,
