My heartfelt condolences to Anthony's family and the building department staff. Anthony had an astounding aptitude in his city roll, an amazing level of patience, and a genuine regard for the community which he served. Thank you from this Mountain View citizen Anthony so kindly helped many, many times over.

Not often you find man like Anthony working in the role he played as a building offical. He was approachable, fair and extremely helpful. A man of action, not afraid to make decisions. My sincere condolences to his family and close friends. The community will miss him.
