Tony and I were next door apartment neighbors during engineering grad school 1973-4 and became life-long friends. Lots of skiing and golf with him at CSU, great fun to head out skiing with him in his little Datsun. We couldn’t believe at the end of grad school we got, like: jobs. One thing leads to another, and Tony let my daughter know about the opportunities at BGC, where she now works. Great guy, great friend, great memories, and best wishes to Jolanta, also one of the best. Tom

Tony was a leader. Tony was a touchstone. Tony was a humorist. Tony was a giver to his Evans Scholar friends and to the Foundation. Tony is sadly missed.

Brothers for over 50 years! Will never forget his smile and caring, both professionally and personally, for all we experienced over those years.

Miss him so very much...... He was a brother to all of his Evans Scholar classmates. Tony loved to play golf and I really enjoyed playing a round with him. Tony, I hope you continue to "hit them straight" forever.

I too was an Evans Scholar and had the privilege of being a classmate of Tony’s. He was a born leader and his pledge brothers often found ourselves in his room to listen to music and talk. We all grew up together and those friendships have lasted our whole lives. Tony was a key man in making that happen and he will always be loved and missed. This world is a better place because of Tony Melone.

I met Tony more than 20 years ago, while we were both working for Tetra Tech. We became friends on company "team building" trips (fishing trips) in British Columbia. We shared some very enjoyable fishing moments on those trips. We stayed in touch after I retired in 2010. We (Evelyn & I) became close to both Tony & Jolanta after they retired. We shared numerous experiences (dinners, sailing & fishing) as we were snowbirds, wintering in Surprise, AZ. Yeah, Tony was a great story teller, and did start most stories with "long story short". We were always impressed by his golfing stories, especially how he could play for free, apparently a skill learned as an "Evans Scholar". And, yes, we both miss him very much! Jerry & Evelyn Minor

Tony we will remember you as the smiling, cheerful chatty sailor and engineer. Serious about your profession and your sailboat racing. And finding out about your Italian relatives. I will miss the lunches where we solved the world's problems together.

We can’t believe you are gone. After almost 40 years of sailing races, boating cruises, Super Bowl extravaganzas, Thanksgiving dinners, and simply just getting in the car and driving up for a visit. Not sure what we miss most, but your laughter and stories are close to the top of the list.
