We Remember


November 20, 1975 — November 22, 2021

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Tony announce his sudden passing on November 22, 2021.

Tony was born November 20, 1975, to parents Grant and Andrea in Toronto, Ontario. He leaves behind his wife Ruby and son Jasper, whom he loved more than anything in this world. He also leaves his best friend and sister Nancy Murphy, her husband Simon and his nieces Ali and Katie.

Tony will always be lovingly remembered by his extended family members from many parts of Canada and the United States; and his many friends that he has made over his 46 years.

Over the years Tony’s path in life took many directions, always in search of the ultimate and adventurous career. He was a pilot, construction worker, heavy equipment operator, fireman, avionics technician, and an athlete.

His love for the outdoors was only surpassed by his unbreakable bond with his son Jasper. They hiked, biked, skied, swam, played baseball, racquet ball, played video games, and worked out at the gym. He was a loyal, positive and fun-loving dad and friend, as well as a hardworking and dutiful employee.

Tony will be remembered for his beautiful smile, love of life, his passion for adventure, his heart of gold, and his endless love for his son Jasper, family and friends.
