Anthony John Hibberd

November 9, 1946 ~ September 14, 2020 (age 73)

Obituary

Hibberd, Anthony John (Tony) passed away peacefully at home on September 14th with his loving wife at his side. He was born November 9, 1946 in Manchester, England and immigrated to the Comox Valley with his family in 1953. After marriage in 1974, he moved to Ladysmith to raise his family and returned to the Comox Valley for his retirement years. 

He will be sadly missed but leaves so many great memories for Shirley, sons Jason and Alex, wonderful daughter-in-law, Eleni and, most importantly,  his adored grandchildren, Ayla and Chase.  He will always be fondly remembered by a multitude of family and friends. Given our current circumstances no service will be held. 

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

I want no rites in a gloom filled room

Why cry for a soul set free

Miss me a little - but not too long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love we once shared

Miss me - but let me go

For this is the journey that we must take

And each must go alone

It’s all a step in the master plan

A step on the road home

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go the friends we know 

And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds

Miss me - but let me go

 

- An excerpt from ‘Let Me Go’ by Christine Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)
