Sincere sympathy to Tony's family. Tony and my brother were married to sisters, all from Glace Bay. He was a really nice man and we kept in touch for many years. I sent him lots of news and pics from the Bay, especially if from the Hub, where he was born. He was quite a wonderful sight in his Highlander uniform. RIP Tony.

I had many pleasant visits and sleepovers at Tony’s home on Sixth St in the Hub. RIP cousin
I met Tony at the swimming pool, Château Vanier, Tower B. He was such a good person, and a good swimmer too, with his family, specially a great grand son who was a baby at the time.
To the whole family, I want to say my sympathies, Tony will always be remembered here.
Now he is with Helen, they are reunited. With all my hearth, love you all, Luce xoxo
Sorry to see you go Tony. You have been a great friend and neighbour and I will miss you. My deepest condolences to your wonderful family.
We were very sorry to hear about Tony’s passing the other day. I was fortunate to see him a few weeks before and didn’t know it would be the last time. Sympathies to entire family at this difficult time.
Tony was one of our parishioners. Before he has fallen I’ll he regularly participated at weekday Masses and one of the Lectors on Sunday Masses. He is polite to talk too and pleasant to be with. Often he would share about his wife and asked prayers for the well being of his loved ones. Go and receive you rewards. RIP TONY. Condolences to his family

Since my early days in Assumption Parish, I have always seen Tony with a smile in his face. We would often have a short-talk and share laughter together. He has been very faithful to his ministry to the Church and I have seen him grew in faith, throughout the past years.
Tony, we will miss you in Assumption. May you now rest peacefully in God’s arm and I hope to see you soon again in His heavenly Kingdom.
My deepest condolences to the bereaved family.
