Tony and his wife Debra have been married for 25 years.  They recently relocated to Cumming after 17 years in Suwanee.  They are both avid skiiers and "road trippers" as well as supporters of the Humane Society (and dog "rescuers"), Wounded Warriors and Law Enforcement Community outreach.  Both of them are long-time blood and platelet donors and are on the National Bone Marrow Donor registry. 

"Working on the Enterline Foundation has given me the opportunity to do more for the IDD community than I could ever do on my own.  This is very personal to me as I've watched my sister and her husband struggle with my nephew, who has a dual diagnosis of IDD and bi-polar schizophrenia.  As he became an adult, the services for him (and my sister) disappeared. I also have other family members with young adults on the Autism Spectrum and I realized this community was under-served and many people, not just my family, needed help with finding resources, information and assistance, as well as long-term planning. It's great to be able to help those families as well as those special people who provide the care this community desperately needs."
