Film producer Sean Clark spoke out on Tony's death, according to TMZ, writing: “Sad to hear of the passing of Tony Ganios aka Meat from Porky's. Although I had many business conversations with him over the years, I wouldn't call him a friend.

He added: “I didn’t know him well at all. However, he was a nice guy and it's a shame he passed away just 2 weeks before Porky's big reunion at Cult Classics Weekend in Bastrop TX that he was supposed to attend. That said, I am sorry for OUR loss.
