Dave and I have happy memories of visits and trips with the a group Travel Organisation (now AGTO). We were all on the same wavelength and had a great time. Tony was a lovely man.

I first met Tony when I was 17 when we both worked at Radiomobile We socialised also with lots of other friends. Tony & I eventually took different paths but we still met up regularly as we both still lived in Cricklewood. We had quite a few holidays together, one of which comes to mind. Tony & I went on a week's holiday to Athens. Another friend Paul had a girlfriend working there & we arranged to meet her at a restaurant. There we were introduced to ' Retsina' the nearest equivalent to Turpentine. They didn't have much in the way of decent wine in the 70's. Tony saw off most of a bottle & the next thing he was inviting all these ' blokes' up on to the floor to dance with him. I said Tone do you realise what you're doing, but he was enjoying himself. I did have a bit of trouble getting him back to the hotel where he spent the night on the bathroom floor propped up against the toilet. Unfortunately the next day we had booked a boat trip to some of the the outlying islands & poor old Tony was a bit worse for wear. Tony & I also did Continental cookery at evening classes but Tony was very squeamish about handling Liver & refused to touch it. We had many more adventures regularly visiting lots of Mecca dance halls including the ' Grab a Granny' nights at the notorious Hammersmith Palais & the Castle in Richmond. After a while we got fed up with this & Tony had seen an advert in Time Out for a social club for professional people called London Village so we signed up. For the next few years most Saturdays were party nights & we travelled all over London, the only entrance fee being a bottle of wine. We met lots of new friends. We also usually went to Bailey's in Watford on a regular basis & I was there on the night that Tony met Chris. I could go on a lot more but I will close now & Tony will always be in my memory.



Remembering you, Tony
With love from Tracy and Bob



How lovely to see such fantastic photos of amazing memories shared by Chris and Tony. Tony was a placid, helpful and easy-g0ing man. It was great fun when we all got together for the 'Bognor Bashes'. Tony's kindness and sense of humour were wonderful.
Rest in peace, Tony.

Tracy and Bob


We always looked forward to hearing about Chris and Tony's travels and adventures around the world. Tony was positive, happy and great to be around. Tony was also a kind and caring person who will be missed, though we have many great memories of being in his company which we will cherish.
Rest in peace Tony.
