Prayers of comfort to Antone’s loved ones. So terribly sorry to hear this news! Antone was always such a nice guy. Kind, thoughtful, quick to laugh, a gentlemen and a gentle man. In high school, he was “Smoothie”, a nick name passed down from his Dad, and worn well on the dance floor. Godspeed Antone , you will be missed.

All my love and sympathy to the family. Tony was a wonderful person and a fabulous golfer. It was always a great joy to play with him. I will always remember his love for the game, his delight with playing with friends, his sense of humor, and his determination and competitiveness. I am so very grateful for the time that we spent together.

Chief Tony Bettencourt was a mentor to me in my own growth through the ranks of the Edgartown Fire Department. He was always there to support and to make you feel welcome. He was an iconic figure in Edgartown and he will be missed and never forgotten.

Tony was a wonderful man -- kind and warm, full of stories with an infectious laugh. Our family was privileged to live next door to him on School and Norton Streets in Edgartown, and for years he was our caretaker. Tony loved the Vineyard, the outdoors, the land and sea. We always marveled at the dahlias he grew and cared so passionately for at the Emily Post house on Fuller Street. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Rhonda, Tony, Erica, and his grandchildren.
