Memorials: Anthony John Platt


I will always remember that you were the one who set me free to be me. You were my first and my last, and you will be missed in this life, but I know we will meet again in the next.

Isaiah 43:2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”



To my Big Brother Tony, I wish we had been closer

Ben and Loren, Mark, Samantha, and Pat


We can’t believe you have left us so soon. You were one of the best Tony, and we are glad we started to know the real you.

Your Good Friends Julie and Angelina


You gave a lot of joy to a lot of people, and we will miss your positive energy. Rest in peace, dear friend.

Oh, Tony! I miss you so much!



Thanks for the memories, I think of you every time I stay at the cottage.

Maggie Cadogan


Never thought I’d outlast Wonderboy Tony! I recall our days working on the cottage, and in the pub – good times! I never did get what the women saw in you, but you certainly had something.



I will always remember your kindness to me when I really needed it. You were one of the best sir, and I appreciate all you did.

James (Jesse) Walker, OBE


You gave us our start in the catering industry, and we are forever grateful for that. We would not be where we are now without your support and kindness back then.

Malcolm and Karen Douglas; Douglas’s Restaurant & Wine Bar, Wareham


Dearest Tony, how the years melt away and I feel your arms around me as we mourned the loss of our little one. I will always remember our time together with affection, you were a tower of strength, and we were a great team.



Where do the years go? It seems like only yesterday this scruffy kid shared our bedroom, and now you have gone to meet the Lord.

You are in our prayers dear one, Rest in Peace.

Reverend Johnny Smith

Dr. Billy Smith


I just heard the tragic news. I will always remember your strength and support, and there will always be a place in my heart for you.

Betty Williamson, Williamson Hotels Group


Uncle Tony, Thank you for being there for Mum and me when we needed you. I’m sorry it didn’t work out between you guys, but I was so very proud of you.



You were taken too soon Anthony, you will be missed.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Roberts


Tony, I never really thanked you for giving me the push to be a full-time painter and illustrator, and even though I was devastated at the time, that incident with the law proved to be pivotal in my artistic growth.

May you find peace at last.

George Smart


Rest in peace, old son, I really miss our walks and our chats.
