It brings me deep sadness to find out that my friend Tony Lewis passed away this past August.

Tony invented the effect "Pips-A-Poppin" which you can see here:

He wasn't well known in Magic. But from what he told me; he was banned from all of Vegas casinos and others for his ability to count cards. That was one of many things Tony told me.

Tony did so much for me during my deployment to Afghanistan. I will never forget the time I was able to finally call him from there. I was so excited to be talking to my friend! He was not just a friend in magic. But became a wonderful friend of life. I will carry on much advice from Tony.

I wish I could contact his family. He always spoke so fondly of his two grand daughters.
I truly miss him.


Dear Tony,
Thank you doesn't begin to describe my appreciation of our friendship. You will live forever in my memories. You brought me many magical smiles. Much needed advice. And now you bring me tears....

Rest In Peace my good friend

Sincerely
Your Friend
Mike

Oh my, my heart is broken. Tony and I have conversed several times over the past 20 years and he never failed to amaze me. He always had the brightest ideas and some of the coolest items that I ever purchased came directly from Tony. I'm sad now. R.I.P. my friend.

Ohhh man. I, also have had many a PM session with Tony! I wondered why I hadn't heard from him. Smile
