  10. Dear Trish, Sarah, Natalie, David, Andrea and kids. I was very sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I will always remember our flights over Dromana when we were young. He would buzz the house so that we could see the family waving and purposely twist and turn the plane to make us scream with excitement. Thinking of you all at this time. Rebecca

  12. Dear TR, David and the kids, Nats, Andrea and the boys and dear Sarah, I am incredibly sad for your loss. Tony was one of a kind and truly one of the kindest most gentle of men. My heart breaks for such an extraordinary loss to all. May you find comfort and peace and carry on with the strength and grace the way Tony would want, the way he lived. He loved his family greatly and his love for TR was limitless.

  15. Dear Trish, David, Sarah, Natalie and families,
    We are so very sorry of the passing of Tony. He was such a friendly man and always had time to pass on his extensive knowledge.
    Bevin will always remember when Tony and Trish pulled up on the road while we were crossing our cows and Tony zoomed up and flipped Bevin the bird being a funny bugger. Bevin didn’t think it was funny at the time until he realised who it was! We have enjoyed the many laughs about that episode since!
    We are thinking of you all during this difficult time.
    Bevin, Emma, Conor, Vivienne and Thea Smith

  17. Thoughts to all Tony’s family and friends. A toast to our absent friend. We will never forget. A great aviator and mentor. A great inventor.
    A most exceptional family man will be greatly missed.
    Let’s hope he can hit all those clay pigeons in the clear blue sky.

  19. To our dear friends in the Roberts family
    Our memories of a great friend will never be forgotten
    We have known you for 40 years and can say this shocking news has been devastating. Over these years we can say Tony was the most significant and influential person we have ever met, a man of incredible wisdom and knowledge, a man of great compassion and gratitude, a man of creativity and understanding beyond any expectation. To say he was a roll model would be an underestimate, but a mentor yes. From his incredible skills in aviation and engineering to his ability to enjoy and share with others we can only say thank you.
    The most incredible man I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing, thank you my dear mate,
    Love to Trish, Sarah, Natalie, David and family
    Wish we could be with you,
    John, Uci, Sarah, Emma, Jasmine. XXXXX

  20. At this incredibly sad time, we are sending all our love to Trish, Natalie, Sarah, Dave and the entire family. I have the distinct memory of turning from the dance floor mid-dance, late in the evening, to see Tony kicking back in his seat, with a beaming smile on his face (partially hidden by moustache of course), which conveyed the sheer satisfaction of successfully pulling off another wild Hangar Party!
    Our thoughts and love are with you all

    Piran & Carly Gartner October 19 2021 6:13 pm
  21. Dear Trish, David, Sarah, Natalie and families Sincere sympathy to you all on Tony’s passing. We have unforgettable memories of Tony an adventurer so clever kind and fun loving. He took us on fabulous flights, hosted wonderful hangar parties with bands and shared so much knowledge about life on his farm. A giant of a man he will be sadly missed. All our love Tim Jane and Richard Hughes.

  24. Dear Roberts Family, we are still shocked and sadden by this news. You have been a second family to me, Tony was and always will be an important person in my life. Such an amazing man who taught me so much and was the perfect mentor as I was growing up. I always enjoyed the conversations and relished the wisdom he passed on. Our thoughts are with you in this time. James, Cameron, Gill Sutherland
