  • I have the privilege to have known Tony for over twenty two years and every time we met either after class or at VITA site, it was always like we’d known each other forever. His warmth, his subtil smile to begin a joke and his advise on accounting and tax subjects even on career orientation will be with me for life. I love you man! Peace. Your entire family was blessed to have had you.

  • Very sorry to learn about Prof. Scott’s untimely passing. He had such an engaging personality that it’s hard to imagine that we will never hear his sound judgement on taxes and numbers and life issue, his jokes on many other subjects. Deepest condolences to the Scott family.
