  3. My uncle Tone or Nunky Tone as I called him when I was a child was one of a kind. His sister Jean, my mum took me to see him in SALOS shows and plays from a young age, and that’s where I got my love of music and theatre. I miss our Sunday afternoons at the Plough listening to the jazz musicians and your funny stories. But most of all I will miss you. RIP Tony xxx

  4. Sleep tight Tony, sorely missed by your family and friends and your lovely niece Sue. R.I.P.

  5. Tony was one of life’s true characters. I look back fondly on my years of working with him at the Brewers Arms, Wanborough and my lasting memory of him will be as a truly funny guy who enriched my life by knowing him. Both my wife and I are deeply saddened by his loss.

  6. We have wonderful memories of Tony and he will be much missed.

  8. Where can I start and where do I end. Tony was with me at Tanwood as a senior boy, as Miss Mollie said, a brilliant tap dancer and an inspiration. He was always that to me. When I won my tap in the All England I thought of Tony xx As we both grew older we had lovely talks about dance and musical theatre. Tony was one of the wonderful guys who everyone loved xxxx He will be missed. May he now rest in peace in the arms of his beloved xx

    1. Thank you Steph for your lovely message. He spoke of you fondly especially when talking about his Tanwood days. He will be sorely missed xxx

  13. Thank you Kim and Mike for your lovely message and we were so pleased you were able to join us yesterday for the celebration of his life. I am sure he was looking down on us all with a big smile. Xxx

  14. We are so sorry to hear that Tony has passed away. He was our good neighbour and friend for 10 years in Partridge Close Covingham. He may be gone but he will certainly not be forgotten. He was a larger than life character. Miss you Tony. Heather and Mike

  15. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Tony, I first met Tony at the Wyvern Club when I was 17 (now 64), My friend Clive and I used to play with SYM but we also worked occasionally on get-ins and get-out’s for different shows and then we would meet in the wyvern club, Tony was a great host behind the bar and would always have a story. I remember many different Party’s but what I remember most I think was the fun we had with Tony. He is one of Swindons characters that a lot of people will have known in passing but did not know the depth of this extraordinary person. Tony thank you for the memories, CHEERS

  16. Josie Marsh passed away on the 23rd June, she was with SALOS and GW Players and thought the world of Tony.
    So close to each others passing, there more things in Heaven and Earth than we shall eve know. RIP you players.
