  1. Patrice and family,
    So sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
    Much love,
    Eileen and Charlie (Gordon)

  2. candleTony Dobies was a colleague and a friend. I’ll miss him. Tony was an outstanding Athlete, great Detective and a compassionate, fair and understanding person.

  3. Tony was truly one of the good guys. He was a team player who always had your back. Always friendly with a great sense of humor. He’ll be missed by all that knew him. Rest in peace my friend.

  4. Great guy, Coach Dobies…. I played for him at molloy and our group chat is exploding with great memories of him. He touched so many of our lives

  5. Coach Dobies (Molloy College) was a good man who always motivated us to work hard but also allowed us to have fun along the way. The team always gravitated towards him and will miss him. Rest In Peace Coach.

  6. candleMy sincere condolence to you and your family on the passing of your father. May he Rest In Peace and his memory forever be a blessing

  7. RIP A/C. Lots of fun patrolling the 6th Pt.”Hill” and other surrounding areas with a character like you for a good number of years.You will always be remembered.

  8. Worked with Tony on quite a few cases. The one that stands out in my mind is the stolen Amati Violin worth about a million dollars. This was a long tome ago, circa 1980. The case was solved and the violin recovered. Faithful friend and great Detective. Rest in Peace Tony. Someday we will all get together again.

  9. To the family and friends of Tony, my condolences on his passing. I had the pleasure on working with him over the years, both in the Nassau County Police Dept. and, after our “Retirement”, with the Ocean Beach Police Dept. Tony was a great investigator and a genuinely nice guy. He will be missed. Rest in Peace Brother.

  10. So Sorry to hear about Tony. Many great Memories of the NCPD softball team and tournaments.
    Thoughts are with his family. Know he will be sorely missed.
    Anita and Jim Saracco

  11. One of the best detectives I ever had the pleasure of working with. He was a great friend to all who knew him.
    We will miss you.
    Thanks for all the great memories
    The only guy I knew who could bunt and hit 300
    The best

  12. I came out of the police academy with Tony one of the funniest guys your ever gonna meet and was never afraid to speak his mind. When I think of Tony I think of his sense of humor and some of the things he would say while we were in Academy downright Hysterical- He would actually say what other people were thinking and that’s what made it so downright genuine- he will be missed

  13. I was so sorry to hear of your passing. It was a pleasure working with you. We had a lot of good times together! May you Rest In Peace.

    • Micky D as Tony fondly called you. I know you are familiar with this pain of loss. Thank you for your sentiments.

  14. So sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I probably have not been in touch with him since 1967 when I “went steady” with him for at least a year or more. We went to the Copa Cabana to his H.S. Senior prom & saw Bobby Vinton at the Copa Cabana. We ended our relationship after he was discharged from the army. Lots of memories. I hope his life was a happy one.💙

  15. AC. Life is so short and memories so long.
    You were a very big part of my life my friend. May you enjoy your well deserved life in heaven. May I see you again one day. !
