    Our heartfelt condolences to you Ruth and to your family. I've gotten to know Tony in recent years through our Monday night bridge group. Always enjoyed his good company and his great sense of humour. He was a mentor for me at the bridge table and he will be greatly missed.

    To all the Jarrett's and Hopkinsons I am so sorry for your loss. Tony was a very special man and his love for the grandchildren really shone through when he got the pool ready and warm for swim lessons . I will.miss him too. I will be out of town during the Celebration of Life but will think of him that day.

    Dear Ruth and family, saddened to learn of Tony. A fine man and a trooper. 'Knew him from circa 1975 and the Royal Commission on Forestry of that time. He made a major contribution.

    Ruth and family,
    So sad to hear of Tony's passing.
    We have so many memories of Big White and living down the hall at the Graystoke.
    We remember how keen our families were, how much fun we had.
    Tony was the keenest!

    Ruth and family;
    Our condolences on the passing of Tony. He and my Dad worked together many a year ago. He had a nice retirement and a happy 87 years. We all wish we could have that. Remember the times that meant so much to all the family as life sometime can be too short.
