For years, people sought comfort and reassurance from Tony Barnett in tough times.
Often specifically thanked in newspaper memoriam notices for helping a family come to terms with their loss, this week the memoriam was in his honour – “The big heart that gave so much to so many, failed.”
Barnett died suddenly in the Bay of Plenty on January 14, aged 72.
A celebration of his life will be held at Annesbrook Church, 40 Saxton Road West, Stoke, Nelson on Friday 29th January at 2pm.
