What Marylyn Roh had to say about her step-brother.
I adored my brother. He was a wonderful brother; brilliant smart kid with a lot of moxie. Tono will always be my ‘little brother’ as he was 7 years younger. Since his father, Manuel was very handsome, as Tono grew older he became just the same—only taller and in better shape .Eventually Tono put himself through Los Angeles College, and got a degree in zoology. He worked the night shift as a fry cook at a drive-in restaurant. Tono did all that on his own. Then he joined the Navy and went to Japan where he basically sat behind a desk for two years. He married in 1963 and stayed married for nearly 50 years until his death in May of 2014.
