    Dear COMTO New York Members,

    It is with both a heavy and saddened heart that we regret to inform you of the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Mr. James Anthony Dandridge Sr., better known to us as “Tony”. For more than two decades, Tony proved to be a spirited leader of COMTO’s mission and vision. As part of the COMTO New York Chapter, he served as President from 2010 to 2014, and since that time he served as both Past President and Advisory Board Member. Tony’s passion for community building was always evident at our monthly meetings. He was consistent in offering his personal experience and guidance to help COMTO members grow, succeed and be impactful as a whole. Whether providing mentoring opportunities and scholarship programs for the youth, organizing toy drives or coaching sports programs for inner-city youth, his leadership, dedication and commitment to public service goes unmatched. His “get it done” mantra empowered and motivated us all to stretch beyond the norms and become change agents for the communities we represent and serve. Tony (Mr. President) will truly be missed.

    The members of COMTO New York want to thank Tony for all of his efforts and goodwill. Our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time. May he rest in peace.

     

    Tony’s family has requested that donations be made to a college fund for his three children in lieu of flowers being sent.  If you would like to donate, we welcome you to send funds to Tony’s family through COMTO New York’s PayPal account.  We will send a check to Tony’s family on January 31, 2020 with all funds donated to our site in his name.  Use the hyperlink below to access our PayPal account, or send donations to COMTO New York using the following e-mail address: COMTO.NY.Finances@Gmail.com
