“We love Tony and so many things that he loved. He loved his family, his beloved mother Fanny, his sister Janet, his brother Kevin. He loved taking his nieces, nephews, any relative who came to visit him, he’d take them out and show them the city. He loved his longtime girlfriend Robin, we are thinking of her,” Roberts said.
She added: “She lives in his hometown, Chicago. They loved traveling the world together. We loved every single moment we were blessed to spend and share with Tony,” Roberts continued. “Our condolences to his family in Chicago. To his mother Fanny, we have to say this to you ma’am, your son was a good man. He was kind, he was thoughtful, he was always a gentleman.”
