He was such a nice man. I remember Aunt Joan dropping him off at the restaurant where I worked while she maybe did a little shopping. He always wanted a big hug and a bowl of soup. The other regulars could not figure out how he always got a hug and they did not.. Rest in peace Uncle Tony

Tony boarded with my gramma when he attended high school from about the time I was born. He was quite simply a part of our family from as long as I can remember. I do recall being shocked to learn that he wasn't a blood relative when I was maybe 10. I remember him as a gentle, oh-so-patient very young uncle answering my many questions. The room where all us cousins slept sideways on the bed at Christmas was called Tony's Room long after he finished school and moved on. There was a box full of moss in the driving shed that we were not allowed to touch. It was home to his colony of fishing worms. I have a vivid early memory of his hands pulling the moss aside so I could see the worms underneath. I've never been afraid of worms because I knew they they were Tony's friends too. He and Joan had no children of their own but he influenced my generation of Sockett descendants as if he were one himself and that is how I will always remember him.

Rest in peace fine sir. Take Joan out for a round of golf and enjoy the sunshine. Afterwards have a nice cold 50 ale. Much Love, Bruce

Uncle Tony will be greatly missed. He was such a character. He would come into my workplace and ask for Joan Burke. When our receptionist asked who he was he would say it's Uncle Tony. Everyone in the office got a good chuckle. Always had an adventure to share with me before he got down to business!

My heartfelt condolences to Joyce, she was a happy addition to Tony's life. Tony made many great contributions to our community, he will be dearly missed. His support for Cancer Patient Services, the LMHF and many more charities were generous and kind, a true philanthropist. He was a proud retired Canadian Tire franchiser and remained loyal to the brand. Tony was a unique character and this world will miss him, I know I will, may he rest in Peace.
