IN MEMORIAM . . .
David A. "Tony" Karsnia: September 12, 1971 - November 02, 2020. PCS President: 2014 - 2020
A message from the PCS President, Paul Steinberg:
I would like to say a few words about past President Tony Karsnia. I prefer to focus on how Tony lived, rather than how Tony died, as tragic as it is to lose a man that we all respected.
When the Friends of the Professional Car Society Forums was created, Tony became one of its first directors. He then quickly contributed with helpful suggestions and ideas. As time went on, he realized that he only had so much time in his busy life. Having young children, a wife, being the business manager of a funeral home, religious obligations, among other endeavors were all competing for his time and he had to make adjustments to fit everything into his 24 hour day. He made his choices wisely, choices that all of us would have made. Tony chose to devote more time to his loving family and gave up his position on the Forums.
Now, for that part of Tony's life that none of us knew about, and I am only mentioning now because his wife Kim wants everyone to know that Tony suffered from depression. It is her hope that sharing Tony's story will help others who also suffer from this condition. To have talked or interact with him, no matter what the event, whether if be a gathering of friends, a new acquaintance, or a complete stranger, you would have never known that he was afflicted with depression. He hid this well from all that knew him. I am proud to say that I was a friend and a colleague of Tony's. I will miss him, as will all the others whom he touched their lives. Tony, may your memory be for a blessing. Paul
