Meet Your Neighborhood Milkman: Tony Tripi

Milkman Tony Tripi

Tony proudly served for 14 years in the United States Army, but now enjoys the simpler life of delivering milk. What he likes most about being a milkman is building great relationships with his customers. He also enjoys working the early hours and being outside. His other interests are spending time with his wife and four wonderful children, riding motorcycles, and woodworking.

We continue our service even though we don’t drink much milk anymore because we want to continue to support Tony and smith brothers. Love the eggs.  Tony thank you, very much appreciate the Christmas card.  I think it’s been 23 years of service for our family’ yeah!!!

Thanks so much Tony! You're like a magical early morning milk fairy - such a treat to wake up to your deliveries. Although, really we're waking up to our puppy alerting us of your arrival, but it's worth it.

Hey, Tony!  Martin here, we had an interesting chat yesterday, and I really appreciate your friendliness and perspective.  Glad you get to work in the cool of the morning ...I was a baker for a few years, and loved the early morning hours, and still do!  By the way, I found that chart I was telling you about, and will leave it for you next delivery for your perusal .  thanks again!

We think Tony is THE BEST milkman!  He has made our "shelter in place" a success story...keeping us sane with milk for our tea, providing various other Smith Bros. products (treats :)), and delivering all with a smile and wave to our quarantining days.  And, as our eldest just said, "Seeing Tony, reminds me what day of the week it is!"  Thank you, Tony!  Stay safe and well, both you and your family!

Tony - thanks so much for your service, both to our country, and as our milkman!
Our 4-year-old granddaughter comes over frequently, and every time she walks up to the door, she checks the milk box - when she's sad to see there is nothing there, I remind her that the delivery only comes early Tuesday mornings. The last couple of weeks, she's gotten to be here on Tuesday mornings and is so excited to open the 'surprise' box and help bring in the milk and other items!

Thank you so much for everything you do every week for us! I think we add things/take things away each week but you're always spot on! Even though we never see you (we don't wake up that early), we appreciate everything you so!!

Thanks for being our milkman. We love the steady, good service. Mike and Donna Herb (sorry about all those stairs!)

Thanks, Tony, for your excellent service.  You definitely take great care of us.  Due to the early hours on Thursdays, you are more or less invisible to us....but our box is always stocked with a perfect order of freshness!  Lucky us!  Great job!  Carol and Lorne

Tony, in recognition of National Milkman Day, I'd like to say thanks to you for always cheerfully delivering our dairy and other items (love the eggs, peanut butter, etc.), especially during the past few months of the pandemic lockdown. I have greatly enjoyed our chats - my favorite story being the one of your motorcycle breakdown in Texas and being helped by a Texas Ranger in the middle of the night. My best also to your wife who is working on the front lines of the fight against this pandemic. Thanks for all that you both do.

Happy National Milkman Day, Tony. We really appreciate your wonderful service and your great personality. You and Smith Brothers is one of the best parts of our week during this pandemic. God bless you and your family.

Thank you for the service you provide, you have no idea how helpful it is to always have bread, milk, eggs and a few treats in a house full of teenagers. It takes a village to raise healthy humans and quality people who help you do just that.  We'd all be less successful without this opportunity.
