Vale Anthony Thornton MBE
It is with deep sadness that we share with you the news that Tony Thornton, National Treasurer and former National President, died late last night.
Tony was a passionate supporter of the Society and advocate for people experiencing marginalisation. His conference work, leadership of Centres and guidance of Council have left a lasting impact on our Society and our community that will see his legacy continue.
A powerful voice for Christ’s poor, always willing to do whatever needed to be done in the service of his brothers and sisters, a deep lover of  humanity, and a gentle and kind man, we will miss him terribly.
