  9. We met Tony at the cardiac rehab center and spent many pleasant hours visiting with him and talking about Pueblo and its’ past. Pueblo has lost a wonderful historian. Tony remembered where every business or home had been at one time and the names of the people who lived there or owned it. He was a wealth of information and we so enjoyed listening to him.
