I'm so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. My father, Dan Schacher, and Tony were good friends and watchmaking colleagues. I would frequently accompany Dad when he visited Tony. I always liked that Tony never talked down to me - always treated the kid tagging along with respect. The world is surely a poorer place without Tony in it.

Tony was a wonderful man and will certainly be missed. He, and his wife Johanna, were very close friends of my parents, Rowland and Carole Lewis. In fact, Tony was one of my dad's very closest friends and they spent a lot of time together. The two couples Had become friends because of my dad, and Tony's, love of antique clocks, and were both longtime members of the NAWCC and worked on repairing and restoring old clocks.They never tired of talking and collecting antique clocks, and sharing their knowlege of them with anyone who would listen. My parents lived in Franklin Lakes when Tony was in Fair Lawn, and they, like Tony and Johanna, ended up moving to Port Charlotte FL back in the late 1980's, I am not sure which one moved there first. My wife and I visited Tony and Johanna in their Fl home way back then, and they seemed so happy there. My parents and Tony and Johanna did many, many, things together aside from the clock meetings, conventions etc. and socialized constantly. When my father died in 1994 Tony was so helpful to my mother. She spoke about him frequently until she passed away in 2008. We are so very sorry to hear of Tony's passing and want to extend our sincere condolences to Tony's daughters, Russ and Nancy Lewis

We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to you, Barb, and Johanna. We still have very fond memories of our times together. Just the other day, we spoke of your home in Fair Lawn which was truly an amazing museum of clocks. Your father was extraordinary.

My dear friend Tony will be truly missed. When I moved into my home in 1992, Eileen & Merv Maurer (the previous owners) told me that "The Montefusco's were the best neighbors ever. At that time I had no idea, but it was not long until I noticed their kind ways, and sincereness. If we were outside fixing sprinklers, or had a problem with the garage door, it did not matter, Tony would trot over with a grin, and always wanted to help in anyway possible! He was like a second Grandfather to me. Another fond memory was always hearing the nice Frank Sinatra music he always had playing in his home! He just loved Frank, and we once went to a Impersonator show that was quite good! I'm grateful for the wonderful memories, and will always cherish them. There are very few people in life that are genuine, and Tony was one of them. May God give his love and support during this difficult time to his family, and peace be with you. Love always, Bettina
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
