Prayers and Thoughts Requested
« on: March 8, 2008, 11:14 AM »
I am sorry to announce the passing of fellow customizer Toni Carbone. Otherwise known as Bikeridetony. He was verry much involved in customizing Kubrik figures and was also involve in the music scene in California. He had a long up and down battle with brain tumors and passed away yesterday peacefully.

If somebody can please repeate this announsement to the right forum or location I would appreciate it. His family is also wondering what to do with his 400 Kubrik style blister packs and many kubrik figures. I have been told that the familly is having some financial problems due to the cost of his hospice care and other expences.

Wow...  I knew of his condition due to a few Kubrick deals we've had in the past, but he never made a big deal of it.

Always sad to see someone taken so young.   :-\

I always enjoyed his enthusiasm for his Kubrick customs -- you'll be missed Tony.

I never crossed paths with him on the boards, but always very sorry to hear when a life is lost, especially at such a young age.  Thoughts and prayers go to his family.
