Anthony Hamblin Mackley

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

It is with much regret and sadness that we have to inform you that Tony passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday morning, 5th February.

Tony was diagnosed with cancer late last year and unfortunately the disease was particularly aggressive which sadly did not give him as much time as we had hoped.

Our thoughts and hearts go out to his wife Helen and his sons and daughters – Sarah, Oliver, Alex, Laura, Thomas and Victoria. He will be very sorely missed.

Tony spent his early career with J.T.Mackleys until he took over the running of J. Thomas (Southern) Crane Hire in the eighties. It was after this that he became more involved in the Industrial Estate.

Tony had been fully immersed in the day to day management of the Mackley Estate since 2010, and he took a great deal of pride in the look and feel of the grounds.
He was very pleased that our estate was notable for the good relationships he had with tenants, contractors and the residents of Small Dole and he always did what he could to support the businesses on the estate to flourish.
His reassuring presence, years of experience and ready-wit will be greatly missed.

J.T.Mackleys will be having a minutes silence at 12.00 noon on Monday 6th February to reflect on their memories of Tony and they would be honoured if anyone that knew Tony could join them.

Tony’s funeral will be held at Findon Crematorium on Tuesday 21st February at 1.40pm. Family flowers only please, but if you would like to contribute to the named charities this can be done through Chalcraft Funeral Directors in Steyning. The family have chosen The Martlets and the RNLI.
