Obituary of Antony "Tony" Brian Rees

Rees, Antony “Tony” Brian

Passed away peacefully at Greater Niagara General Hospital on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at the age of 52. Loving husband to Sandy Chisholm, devoted father to Kylie Hicks (Brian) and Shannon Rees (Adam), and caring stepfather to John Chisholm (Krissy), Jason (Debra), Amanda (Matt) and Sarah Wickson (Wade). Cherished brother to Graham Rees (Nicole) and their kids, and Steven Rees (Emmy). Dearly missed by his parents Susan Rees (Michaela) and Sandra Thibault (Mike). Forever remembered by his furry friends, Angel the chihuahua and Eddie the cat. He was the “neighbourhood dad” to many and will be missed by all he made an impact on.

Tony loved anything to do with cars, including fixing and building them, watching drag racing on TV or sitting in on local racing. If the TV was switched to anything else, it was most likely crime shows with his trusty dog Angel at his side. He loved working with his hands through brick laying, puzzles, and crosswords. Tony loved his favoured nickname “T Manchu” which reflected his preferred facial hair. Home was his favourite place in the world, especially feeding birds and collecting “sunbeams” on his back porch rocking out to Metallica. Rock on Tony!

Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133) has been entrusted with arrangements. A private family visitation will take place. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Liver Foundation would be appreciated. Condolences may be shared to Tony’s tribute page at EssentialsNiagara.com.
