43 Tony Gumina

What’s like to travel with Ray Charles?

If you want to listen to Ray Charles, you buy an album. If you want to put the likeness of Ray Charles on a t-shirt or sing his song in a movie, you call Tony Gumina. He knew Ray, traveled with him, and now represents his legacy. You’ll love his story of how he went from golf caddy to casino owner at the age of 12.

    That’s my dad. Tony passed away in April of 2014. I can’t thank you enough for this interview. Me and my family listen to it often. He was such a smart and remarkable man.

    I’m sorry for your loss, Cathie.

    I really liked him. And I know he really loved you.

    My best to the family.

    God speed, Tony.

    I just listened to the recording. Tony’s voice sounds exactly the same as it did back when we hung out in the late 70 ‘s . I could hear his charisma . He was certainly a one of a kind personality!
