To the Dravitski family

Our thoughts are with you at this time. Tony was a larger than life personality. Another Auroa road identity no longer tooting their horn on the way past the front gate.

Our deepest sympathy from Jean and the late Lindsay Le Fleming and families.

Hey kids, my sincere sympathy to each of you Tony will be missed. Great friend to Vaughan and the Thomson family. He was toastmaster at my wedding. I remember well On New Years Eve Vaughan would be driving the car Tony on the trailer playing the piano as they drove around the Manaia Band Rotunda. Rest In Peace

Matthew, Johnathon, Kelly, and Family
We are sorry we cannot be with you to offer our condolences at this time. In the days ahead we know there will be many friends gathered around you to offer the same support and love that Tony gave to all. You have lost a wonderful Dad and grandfather. He was also a loving husband to your Mum and together they were a kind and generous couple. A very good friend has now gone but there are some wonderful memories left to share when we next meet.

Deepest Sympathises to you all. My first memory of Tony was as a altar boy for Father Garty, at the little Auroa Catholic Church.
I also recall sharing a few beers with Tony in the Otakeho Pub. Tony never felt the need to dress up standing at the bar in his black bushman singlet and his pance held up by bailing twine!
Both Tony and Stephanie were great community people. Working bees, calf days, and jubilees. Tony was always keen to help. My favourite story of Tony's community's service was building the swimming pool. By this stage Tony was down to one leg, but this didn't hold him back from doing a lot of the organising. If he couldn't get material donated he would get it a mates rates. Tony organised the rooster for pool development, suppling lunches and beers at the end of the day.
I will finish with another story of being at a funeral at Kaponga. A group of us of men were standing catching up after the interment and came on to rain. Casey Eagar kindly offered us a ride back to our cars in the back of hearse. "Like hell" bellowed Tony, "I'm only every going to ride in the back of a hearse once and it is not going to be today!" So we all walked back to our cars getting wet.
Well Tony old friend, tomorrow you will get your ride in the back of Casey's hearse.
