Transcript for ‘GMA’ pays tribute to late, longtime security guard Tony Suarez
Before we go, we have some heartbreaking news concerning a member of our "Gma" family, a long-time member of our security team in times square, Tony Suarez, he passed away last week. He was a remarkable man. He was a marine, a retired detective lieutenant with the Sullivan county sheriff's department, a great, great family man, an eternal optimist. You know, he would just greet you with a warm smile and he had a story to tell. We're thinking of Tony's wife lily and we're thinking of their two daughters, Nicole and Toni. We're thinking of the many grand and great grandchildren. I heard they enjoyed seeing their pop-pop. That's what they call him. Enjoyed seeing him occasionally on TV. Our prayers are with him and with our security team family, Elvis and Richie and Annie and Paul and big Al and Hector. I'm going to miss that sweet kiss from Tony when I head down to the studio. But what a remarkable man. He will be missed. He kept us safe and he kept us smiling.
