As we go through the journey of life, we meet people that for one reason or another leave a lasting memory. Tony was one of those loving and warm-hearted people that will be in our hearts and minds for years to come. From the too short time Tony was on this earth, it was an honor to be considered a friend.

Hi Liz,

My condolences to you and your family,

I’ve known Tony from his work place and the Weston area of Toronto from many years back.
It’s hard to imagine how fast something’s happen and how small this world is.
We shared a few smoked capelin together over the years, and that will be missed,
especially his company.

Goodbye Tony
Go with peace

Condolence from Richard Harrison on January 15th, 2021 11:32 am

Liz my heart goes out to you and the family with this tragic loss ,I can not imagine the feeling felt by the family with Tony not being there , my father just turned 89 years old this year and he will tell you there is no such thing as “golden Years ” – Tony would be looking down at us with a smile and say hand me a beer and get over it , I did things my way , and for the most part he did . He could always make me smile even on the worse day . when I go to AJ’s it will not be the same . Friends can come an go in life but Tony always be there in our hearts – we will meet again just not yet .

Condolence from Mike Fyfe on January 15th, 2021 11:33 am
