In loving memory of the late Anthony "Tony" David State who sadly passed away on 24th July 2014. Tony loved Fishing he was a very keen fisherman and a very good one. He loved having a pint in his local with his pals. He's left behind 7 children and too many grandchildren to count.
Tony was the youngest child of John and Mary State. He was Shirebrook born and bred. He had 3 Brothers and 3 Sisters, 2 of whom he's joined in heaven. He was lovable rogue who always made people laugh. He loved a good joke and banter. He will be and always is very sadly missed. Please feel free to add any comments and memories you have of him.

I miss you so much Dad it hurts, it hurts so much. Knowing I will never get to hug and kiss my dad again, I will never hear your voice again, your Grandson will never see his beautiful Grandad again :-( it hurts more than anything. What I would give to have one last hour with you Papa. One day I will learn to be stronger this I know, but right now I am weak. Keep watch over us Dad. You were a kind and generous person that was taken from us far to soon. I think of you every second of everyday and I will love you as long as there's stars in the sky and even after then! Love you Dad. Bye for now. Daughter out xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Until we meet again Uncle Tony. I feel so sad that I had not seen you for such a long time. Now I never will. Until we meet again for a pint. Thank you for all of your kind words way back when, and for making me laugh. You will be missed but never forgotten. x

For you dad.
Little we knew that day, that god would call your name, in life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day god called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side.
No words I write can ever say, how much I miss you everyday.
I think of you in silence, I always speak your name, but all I have are memories, and your photos in a frame.
Ive never stopped loving you, and I'm sure I never will, Deep inside my heart, you are here with me still.
There is a place in my heart no one can ever fill, I love you so dad and I always will.
Love you always dad. Tia.
