Hi my name is Jo.
Tony was my sister’s partner of over 15 years.
They were perfect for each other and had built a wonderful life around their love of dogs.
Tony was Hayley’s everything and vice versa…soulmates was not an understatement .
Tony was tragically killed in his beloved France on Saturday 7th June following a terrible accident while attending the ‘Rock&Cars festival’ in Lavaur. He was only 54 and having the time of his life. He was fit, healthy, happy and had everything going for him.
He was charismatic, funny, passionate and so very loved by Hayley , his family and his friends all over the world.
His passion was dogs and he helped people all over the world with his classes both in person, online, on radio and television, ebooks, and more. He was very well respected and admired. His method worked and he loved helping people with their dogs.
He also loved comedy and had performed his show ‘Mad Dogs and an Englishman’ at all sorts of venues both in Australia and overseas ..he was about to do a run of shows through the UK , as well as run his esteemed dog classes through Europe. He’d been based on our family farm near Beaufort for the past 4 years building a life there with Hayley and proving to be a bit of a handy man ..he just put his mind to something and he did it! He had been very happy.
The support he gave when dad was facing a terminal cancer diagnosis will never ever be forgotten .
At the time of his accident he was heading to his beloved Bouillac in the south of France where he has a home and friends waiting for his annual return. Hayley was to follow soon, as they did every year at this time.
Tony had been in France only a few days before he lost his life attending a festival with his friend Pascall, and never made it home.
We are beyond devastated that his life was taken by a freak accident …an accident that we are all still trying to comprehend.

Hayley is now living her worst nightmare and facing life without Tony…her soulmate.
She is in Bouillac having to deal with the difficulties of Tony being an Englishman with Australian residency living in France, arranging a funeral, covering hospital expenses, meeting police detectives, doctors and the mayor, visiting the accident site and sorting Tony’s estate, all while experiencing a crushing amount of grief and disbelief in a foreign country.
In Tony’s memory and in his honour I am creating this ‘Go Fund Me’ to help my beautiful sister meet the costs of Tony’s funeral, medical bills and ongoing costs of sorting his estate.

Tony ..we will love and miss you forever. Life will not be the same but we will wrap our arms around your beloved Hayley ❤️
