In loving memory of Anthony Johnson who sadly passed away on 25th May 2020.

Tony was a great husband, dad and grandfather, and a friend to many. He will be sadly missed.

The family asks that you choose to grieve him in whatever way suits you. There is a memorial book below and a charity page has been set up for donations if you feel so inclined. They've asked for no funeral flower arrangements, however cut flowers/bouquets can be sent direct to the crematorium or to the house.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 the funeral will be family only. Details will be sent on how to stream the funeral nearer to the time. The family will be sorry not to see you at this time but hope to see you all soon.

A key member of "the 9" that were not only a team of work colleagues but were great friends. Tony's dedication to the job and sense of humour played a great part in the work hard, play hard and enjoy it culture of our working lives together.
We will miss him greatly

So many memories of events, incidents, travel, story telling and fun! Great days.... this one happens to be the Heineken cup final at Cardiff in 2011. Farewell Tony. You'll be missed.

It is a privilege to have known Tony, always having an understanding what the umpiring decision he missed, but never forgetting you make the game. A friendly face up for a beer and chat.

I only knew Tony for a few years but he welcomed me to the club. Playing on the same team and the after game discussion was a pleasure. Thank you Tony

Tony was not the best hockey player, far from the best umpire, but one of the very best men I had the pleasure to meet. RIP Tony

The end of a day's walk. The 'lads' walking always ends the day with a visit to the pub and of course an evening meal. Tony loved his French food and fortunately we were able to dine in this lovely little French bistro close to where we stay.

The end of an era - we shall not see his like again, either on the hockey pitch or off it. I count myself privileged to have known Tony and will miss him greatly, as I'm sure will everyone who knew him. My thoughts are with Pip and all his family.

Thursday nights at the Stratford will never be the same.Tony and I walked many miles over the years down to ( and often back) from the pub putting the world to rights- the conversation always dominated by him with great humour- to be then continued in the pub over many pints and shared peanuts.So many funny moments- a great bloke -he will be sadly missed.

Not sure Tony was ever rescued but given his many walks in the lakes clearly a cause close to his heart!!

I met Johnny (Tony)at school in 1964(or was it 1864)-he had a talent for crashing into stuff-often in his car-and falling over. Nights out to Wirral pubs were always eventful when he came along-beer was 1/9 a pint-the whole evening cost 10 bob. He had some interesting cars-a 1940s Hillman that covered Birkenhead in a smog when he went out, a 1940s Standard 12-which was lovely but he soon changed that, eventually writing it off against a lamp post. His dad always said "Get that heap of junk off my drive" We towed a 1930s brakeless Morris 8 tourer home from N Wales-the solid tow bar snapped and he careered off the road and piled into a hedge at some speed-avoiding a nasty accident.
Le Mans 75 and again with Seymour travel!, Silverstone 75, Hanley Swann, scrumpy, Skinners caravan, My MGA and Riley -his MGAs-Tranmere-Sleeping on the floor at Stretford, Brooklands, Johns chippy-Golden times indeed-we kept in touch with boozy lunches and a trip to France-so glad I did that
Thanks chum-a proper bloke-so proud to have been a part of your life-we never fixed those Morris brakes did we?
