Oh, what a loss, we cried when we heard the news.
We knew the Willacys from the early 70s as neighbors and friends, and as a colleague at Suncor . Our families grew up together. I always admired Tony’s honesty, integrity, humor and friendship . Our thoughts go out to Celine and the families on the loss of a husband, father and grandfather.
May he rest in peace.

Very sad news. My condolences to Tony’s family. I worked a lot with Tony especially when I first joined Suncor and always respected his integrity, his expertise and his willingness to be helpful and supportive

I knew Tony well. He and I played tennis at the Mac. Island tennis club for 13 years.

He was such a good caring person for whom I had a very high regard.

Our sincere condolences and prayers to the family during their loss. Mr. Willacy, you were a true blessing to have as a neighbourhood father on Hill Drive growing up. You always took time out to walk the dog, play catch (inviting me, thank you), watching you guys play tennis, (Anne tried to teach, good teacher, but difficult student, I didn’t show much talent lol), I always felt welcomed in your home at 121 Hill Drive, Fort McMurray, Ab. I always admired you taking Mrs. Willacy’s hand from the dishes in the kitchen to steal a dance with a moment of affection making Mrs. Willacy blush with us girls giggling. You showed what love is all about. You were a good, good father, my memories growing up 2 doors down from your family will always be cherished.
May you rest in peace and God bless you.
