  7. Although I did not know Tony well I will always remember him for his pleasant personality and gift to gab. He would come into Grey’s Shell station in Port Lambton when I worked there and we always had good chats about friends and family. Tony always had time to talk.

    It was only a few months ago Tony borrowed my house coat to put on a skit play at the Wilkesport Hall. Funny, every time I wear that house coat now my thoughts will be about Tony.

    Our sincere condolences to his family.

  10. Dear Mr. & Mrs. Beggs,
    With sadness and sorrow (but not without hope) we extend our sympathy to you and Leona, Jamie & Amy and family. I have known Tony since 1993 from Centralia College. He has been one of the most faithful of friends. The most precious of memory I have is recorded in my Bible. June 2, 1999 Tony called to tell me he has accepted God’s gift of salvation from sin and death through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. On that day he was born again, never to die spiritually, for Jesus said “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. (John 11:25-26) Tony believed and confessed that Jesus is the resurrection and the life. He was truly a new creation in Christ Jesus. And what a beautiful creation he was as all those who knew him can confirm. So with confidence we know that he is home with Jesus forever. I will see our dear friend again.

  11. Dear Sharon and Bob and Tony’s siblings,

    I knew Tony through Emmanuel Baptist Church in Exeter, and his friends from college. I am truly sorry for the loss of your son. He often talked about you both and his brothers, sisters, nieces, and grandmother. I will miss Tony and grieve his loss with your family even though we know he is now in no pain. Although we don’t understand God’s ways, his plan for Tony here on this earth was completed. Praying you feel God’s comfort through this difficult time. Deborah Dennis

  12. Sincere condolences to the Beggs family. Amy you and your family is in my thoughts and prayers. May God grant you all with the courage to bear this loss.

  20. Our condolences to Tony’s family.We enjoyed many short visits with Tony,he always stopped to say Hi when he saw Everet outside.May the Lord comfort all of you.

  21. Whilst I never had the pleasure of meeting Tony, I have known Jamie for a few years and have the pleasure of working with him. I can only assume Tony possessed a lot of those same qualities. Its also evident from the messages sent so far. I just wanted to reach out to the whole family to pass on my condolences to all of them, especially to Tony’s mother and father who must be devastated at the speed of this devastating disease. May God Bless you all in this time of pain

  23. Sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. He was a frequent customer at Exeter shell. My condolences are with your family.

  24. Tony was a great friend. He was always willing to do anything for a friend and told the best stories. He will be greatly missed. I will pray for Bob and Sharon and the rest of the family.

  25. My sincere sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Beggs and all of the family. Three months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tony again since public school and being in a small skit for the church talent show with him and we had a lot of fun doing it. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know him. He talked often of his sisters and their children and of his missionary trips and we had to schedule our practices around “milking time.”
    We had a lot of laughs and it is difficult to believe that he is gone such a short time later. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  26. I went to Centralia College with Tony a long time ago. I have never met anyone who was able to be your best friend and big brother at the same time as well as Tony could. I will never forget what a kind and generous spirit Tony was. He will be terribly missed. Please feel proud of the life Tony had and the people who’s lives he touched. Thank you for giving us Tony.

  27. Our whole family is shocked and saddened to learn of Tony’s death. He was such a wonderful friend to us. It was a privilege to have had him in our lives.
    When we lived in Ontario we always enjoyed visits with him when he would stop by and share stories and laughs with us. And after we moved to Saskatchewan we were thrilled to have him come and visit with our family and even live close by us for a short while. He was like an Uncle to our kids and brother to us. And we always enjoyed phone visits and again – laughs of all the stories he would share about his adventures and work experiences. We are only one of many many families that are going to miss him so very much. We know how much he loved his family. He spoke highly of his mom and dad – loved his siblings and especially his nieces and nephews. He treasured his grandmother and extended family. He loved the Lord and desired to please Him with his life. And he demonstrated that love by his actions! If you needed him, he would be there. What a wonderful guy.
    We will be praying for all those he has left behind and thank God that he can now rest peacefully.
    Our deepest condolences to all.
    The Fox Family. Jay, Tara and children.

He was one of a kind for sure, and he will be remembered by all of us with fondness and love. You are in thoughts and prayers.

  30. Tony was such a fabulous person. Anyone who knew Tony, was very blessed to have him as a friend. He was such a caring and thoughtful person and will be missed deeply! You would never know what story he would tell you next, and have you laughing hysterically all the while. I will miss those moments!

    My prayers go out to his family! He will be in my thoughts forever!

  31. Our thoughts are with you all during this difficult time.

  34. Tony (known as Toni Balonie to my girls and nieces) is one of the most thoughtful, selfless, caring, hardworking, funny people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.

  35. Tony was a great cousin…we just got back in touch with each other but the short time we spent together was great.. you will be misssed
