On December 3rd, Tony Hennessy passed away. Our hearts are heavy with sadness. We have lost a dear friend and valued colleague. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to his friends, family and those who knew him.
Tony was a proud Irishman. He was also a Conservative Councillor in the Brooke Green ward from 1978-1994. Tony supported many organisations and was on the board of various charities including Hammersmith United and Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham. He was also a governor for St Mary’s Juniors’ School and an active member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Brooke Green. He helped with the running of their hall and assisted church members when necessary, he was always willing to help where he could.
He took a strong interest in housing and older people that clearly hadn’t changed over the years. As a former trustee and volunteer at the charity shop, Tony served our organisation for almost 30 years. Tony's contributions were powerful, and his work ethic was more than remarkable. Energy, commitment, integrity are all words that begin to capture our image of Tony. We wish that we had many more like him. He was one of kind and will be sorely missed as a colleague and a friend.
We at Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham would like to thank Tony for his service and endless contributions. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends and those who knew him. We will let everybody know the funeral arrangements once we have been informed.
Tony will be remembered as a caring and beloved family man, a cherished colleague and friend that will be missed by many, but never will he be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to have known him!
