Today, I was saddened to discover Tony had passed away last month. Serveral years ago we were able to reconnect via telephone after many, many years. I had often wonder how he was doing. His parents and family and my family lived across the street from one another in the 1950s. I was just a child. But, Tony made a lasting impression on me as he went on to do so many wonderful things throughout his life and in our hometown of Glassboro. I'm glad I got to talk to him. And, please except my condolences for your family's loss of this very good man. There really aren't that many people like Tony. We were all blessed to have had him in our lives.

Mr. Esgro was our principal at Erial #5 in Erial , NJ. around 1964-1967.I can still remember his voice . He had such a presence while standing in the halls. Once I was misbehaving and had to visit him in his office.I was so afraid of him but he set me straight. He told me that I reminded him of his daughter. I don’t think I behaved badly after our chat. RIP Mr. Esgro

My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to all the Esgro Family. Tony was and will always be a very special person to me and so many other people. He was very influential in my gaining an administrative position with the Gloucester Township school district and any success I was able to achieve. But I'm not the only one......Tony was able to motivate and earn the respect and admiration of all those who worked with him. Being with Tony in any situation eventually became a productive and humorous experience. I learned a great deal from Tony and will never forget some of the great times we shared with Anthony Mirenda at lunch. What a team they made: Jim Lilly, Tony Mirenda, and Tony Esgro..... together again in Heaven this time.......for me there will never be another team like them. My prayers and thoughts are with Kathy and the rest of the family. R.I.P. TONY YOU ARE TRULY LOVED.

Aunt Kathy, Kim, Anthony, Glenn, Danny, Robbie and the rest of the clan, Wanted to reach out and let you know I'm thinking of you all during this difficult time. I have so many happy memories of Uncle Tony and our family gatherings. I especially remember the summer BBQ's in your backyard. We spent so much time horsing around in your pool our toes would bleed. I loved all the relay races, family/cousin time, great food, and most of all the laughter. Uncle Tony was a wonderful man and he will be deeply missed, but his memory will live on forever in our hearts. Love to you all, Jacquie Burke

My dearest Tony, My heart breaks for your family and friends. You were a true Renaissance Man before the word ever became popular. I shall miss your smile and good humor.

And most of all I will remember the warmth and respect you treated everyone you encountered. Rest well my friend, rest well. Jim McGehrin
