I fondly remember meeting him in Goodison Road after a derby match shortly after his dad, Wilf, had passed away. We won the match, but at a critical stage late on a cross dropped onto Ian Rush's head. Inexplicably, Rush failed to jump properly, got under the ball and headed over the Gwladys St goal. Tony was beaming outside the Winslow, shook my hand and said "Did you see him, Peter? Did you see Dad in the 6 yard box, holding onto Rush's shirt?". I've no doubt he was correct, and hope Tony will now be able to help us out for the rest of the season.
RIP Tony, a great Evertonian.

His contributions to the Collection were well thought out, valuable, always made sense and helped to preserve the Collection for posterity. His quiet demeanour masked a steely resolve and a passion for all things Everton that was rarely rivalled. I know that I can speak for my fellow Trustees, the Heritage Society guys and the many Evertonians who knew him when I say that he was one of a select group of "special" Evertonians who will be very sorely missed.
I echo Peter Mills' comments that Tony was a "decent and thoughtful man, dedicated to the Blues" Â– very well said. On behalf of my fellow Trustees, I'd like to pass on my sincerest condolences to Angela, his family and friends at this difficult time. Rest in peace Tony, I'm sure you'll enjoy quite a natter with Bally, Labby and Davie Hickson at that great Goodison Park in the sky.

Tony epitomised everything you would expect from an Evertonian. Old school, understated, dignified, knowledgeable and passionate.
Deepest sympathy to Angela and all the family. In my thoughts and prayers, Rest In Peace Tony
