In loving memory of Tony Joseph Hutchins who sadly passed away on 21st April 2019
Tony joined our family in October 2000. He was a very happy child who enjoyed climbing trees, going to the coast and playing on the moors. He enjoyed many summer holidays in Cornwall with his friend George and George's family. As he grew up Tony developed skills and interests in BMXing and skateboarding, with frequent visits to Flowerpot skatepark in Exwick and Mount Hawke in Cornwall. He auditioned for Britain's Got Talent in Cardiff, taking his friend Ben for moral support. He created many videos on YouTube which illustrate his humour and love of fun. In his teen years Tony developed skills in spitting bars and had a real talent for this; videos of him circulate still on social media. He had a long term relationship with his girlfriend Jess who saw him through some very difficult times, along with his immediate and extended family. Tony came through his dark times in style, working at the local Makro warehouse and becoming much more settled and happy in himself. He imparted many words of wisdom to his younger siblings, who looked up to him as a true role model. His passing over the Easter weekend was tragic. He had been back to Cornwall with a group of friends for an overnight camp, having a lovely time and enjoying the fine weather. While returning to the group after making a phonecall he fell from the cliff, dying instantly. He leaves all those who knew him stunned and bewildered that he is no longer around with his ready smile and easy humour. The response from the wider community has been overwhelming - Tony himself would be gobsmacked by the reaction his passing has engendered.
