My heartfelt condolences on Tony’s demise. We were classmates at St. Xavier’s School, Calcutta from 1956 to 1959, after which I moved to Madras. We met up again at IIMC in 1965. We used to meet when he was working with Ponds in Madras. I pray for his soul to rest in peace.
Jean and family,
I am truly sorry for the loss of your dearest Tony, Father, Grandfather and Friend.
He will be missed by one and all. RIP Tony
We were truly saddened to hear of U.Tony’s sudden passing. We are thinking of the entire Abreo family, sending our love, prayers and deepest condolences during this most difficult time.
We were indeed privileged to have spent several memorable occasions with our dear cousin Tony , Jean and the family. Tony was a thorough gentleman. A loving man, compassionate, full of knowledge and wisdom. A deeply devout caring man, with a great sense of humour, subtle wit and a wonderful disposition. His family came first, and he left no stone unturned to make sure they were comfortable. He will be missed by all. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family at this difficult time. REST IN PEACE Tony.
When I first met Tony it was before Cecil and I were engaged and I now realise that as his elder brother how much he meant to Cecil.
Tony was a devoted husband and father who loved his family without measure and will be deeply missed by all of us who knew him.
Rest in peace dear Tony, you lived a blameless life, God has surely welcomed you into heaven.
Tony was the quietest guy in PGPIi at IIMC, sauve, soft spoken and a team person on the sombre side.
It is saddening to hear demise of such a wholesome person . Pray, let God grant strength to the family to pull through the difficult times.
Let the noble soul rest in peace
We are truly sorry to hear about Tony’s passing. Our thoughts & prayers are with the bereaved family. May hi RIP.
Dear Jean and Family, Kevin and I only met Tony once in early 2019 when you both joined a delightful gathering at our home and help to kindle newly discovered family ties over a delicious meal you helped to bring. I recall vividly the affection between the two of you. My heart breaks for the loss of this great love of your life. I do hope we can meet again and hug and share memories, with love Marie and Kevin
Vale Tony! You were a wonderful man, kind, calm, wise, funny and I feel privileged to have known you. Rest in peace, dear cousin. Dearest Jean, Anisha, Karina, Rohan and families, our heartfelt condolences, may God comfort you in your grief and loss.

As speechless as I am on this incredibly sombre day, I would like to offer you my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy on the untimely passing of dearest Tony. A thorough gentleman and a brilliant scholar, as well as a passionate sports fan and an adventurous soul, he was the quintessential big brother to me (biologically, we were more than first cousins since our mothers were sisters and our fathers were cousins).
I pray fervently that his magnanimous soul may rest in eternal peace together with all the family members who paved the way before him, and that you will find the fortitude to overcome this stressful grief.
I got to know about Tony’s demise from his brother Cecil.
My heartfelt condolences to the family.
Tony was a gentle soul, a thorough gentleman. In Bombay we used to meet often. He was an avid bridge player.
Dear Jean and family,
I have just heard that you have lost your beloved Tony. Our deepest sympathy at this sad time. May he Rest In Peace and may your beautiful memories be a blessing in the midst of your sorrow!
