  • Ron Buntrock Tony (known by most in the trucking trade only as "Pepperoni"), was a mountain of a man - strong as a bull (and sometimes just as stubborn) but one could ask for a better friend. I am proud to say he was my friend the entire time I knew him and worked with him at Holland. A harder working or more honest man can't be found, nor is there any man who loved his family more than he did. They were (and are) his sole reason for working so hard all his life.
    The Curvello family should be proud to have had such a man as a husband, father and grandfather - he was one of a kind.
    Now you can Rest In Peace.....Tony.. Your job is done.
