    Rest In Peace my friend.

    I can’t believe that you are not here. I won’t be seeing you again.
    This is so hard for me to accept
    I won’t be laughing with you, give you a hug….
    I won’t be hearing your Bollywood songs and. Bale Bale any more…….
    Please God give him a good care, good life again….. ..
    You were like my father you passed away on a same day when my father was born 10/08…
    Do I celebrate or cry……..?…

  • Nik Puacha says:

    Dearest Tony B, you entered our world at Central like a charismatic big brother and lit up the place with your colourful character and always interesting view on work, the world, sport and life. I will always remember your spirit and passion for all the things and people you cared about and your honesty. You didn’t always agree on everything but you listened and respected what people had to say. You will always be remembered by your friends and you will forever be dearly missed at Central and I can truly say that the place will never be the same without you. I will also miss seeing you walking around Five Dock as will the local community and even the Bus Drivers that you always acknowledged. My sincerest condolences to your loved ones and may you rest eternally in the grace of God.

    Never a person full of life and care could have touched the lives of so many simply by being yourself. You were and still are frankly the best for a smile remembering a story or a joke.

    You were taken too soon and will be missed by many. I will see you again my friend.

  • Paul Byatt says:

    My very dear friend. I would have loved to come to your funeral, but as you know, covid denied that. I will miss you forever. As I’ve said before those years playing competitive squash with you at Leichhardt were the best years of my life. I truly hope there is a heaven, and if not I will create one, because you deserve to be there. You are such a champion bloke that made my life a better one for knowing you. May you Rest in Peace, Tony. I love ya, and I hope we will meet again one day.

  • A passenger, fellow worker & golfer says:

  • Sylvana Campisi says:

    RIP Tony My heartfelt condolences to the Bonaddio Family! May God give them all the strength to get through this very sad time! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

  • Carmen and Mark Kent says:

    Our world is a richer place for you being in it…..physically you may not be here but the mark that you left on each and every one of us means you haven’t left our thoughts…..
    I have so many memories that make me feel special to have known you.
    Somethings just never leave your memory…..instead of singing the words to “Karma Chameleon”….you changed it to “Carmen works at Camellia” (never did get to work there though), yelling out “Carmstar! You’re amaaaazing” whenever we saw each other…..then we would play argue as to who was more amazing, always ready with a hug, always asked how Mark and the kids are and he genuinely wanted to know and cared for them, when I got a secondment at the ROC….it went from “Carmstar! You’re amaaazing!” to “Carmstar! She’s a ROC star and the most amazing girl”….
    Everyone that I saw interact with Tony he would tell them how amazing they are and he meant it.
    We will miss you so much TB but you will never ever be forgotten
    Love and miss you
    Carmen, Mark, Layla and Jack Kent

    RIP Tony from John and Glenda❤❤❤
    It was nice knowing you.

  • Adam Halgren says:

    As a young incompetent I worked at Central for a fortnight, and when I reappeared three years later as a guard Tony remembered me. Tony remembered everyone, he was the heart and soul of Central, and a dear and kind man who touched the life of everyone he met.
    The sense of loss his colleagues feel would be nothing compared to the loss for his family, and we’ll have you in our thoughts as we remember Tony forever.

  • Glenn Watts says:

    A beautiful man. With a beautiful smile and personality. Sorely missed. Much love.

  • Anonymous says:

    Rest In Peace Tony B

  • Warren and Kim Travis says:


    How do we describe a man who was bigger than life? A man who supported his peers, friends and family 100%. You loved unconditionally, and gave so much of yourself. When new people started, you took them under your wing and taught them what you knew. You lead by example and what a great example you showed. You had a way of drawing people to you. No question was too trivial. No task too hard. You fought for your mates and gave your all. Your songs and huge voice were known by many. Whenever we were down, you managed to cheer us and give us one of your amazing smiles. Your words of encouragement boosted us. To you, we were all one big family. In your eyes, we were amazing and your children.
    Tony, while heaven has gained an angel, our world has lost one of its best.
    May you forever rest in peace and keep singing and smiling for all those up there with you. You will remain in our memories forever and hopefully those of us who were blessed to know you, will carry your spirit and ways. Goodbye Tony, until we meet again. xx

  • Phil Suters says:

    My deepest condolences to the Bonaddio family and friends.
    Tony, and I grew up together as neighbours and friends and the most striking thing to this day was Tony’s big smile.
    As kids, we played countless cricket games , in the front yard in the back yard and down his parents driveway. There was NEVER, an excuse not to play cricket.
    Always,cheery never saddened by anything .
    Tony loved his SPORT and playing outside.
    I am saddened to hear of his passing . May he Rest In Peace.

    Dear Tony Bonaddio
    It was a shock to the system when I read the email.
    That moment it was like apart of me was stripped to shreds.
    It took me a while to register this.
    It saddens me that we lost a true friend and central brother
    Every time I was around you I felt love and comfort
    You were a beautiful soul that made every body feel like they were king and queens.
    Going to miss the debates that we use to have about different topics,
    But I new sometimes you would let me win
    Never I meet a special and caring person like tony.
    Full of life and always had consideration and respect on how he communicated with his colleagues at work.
    I have to go my friend because at this time my tiers are clouding everything I m feeling at this moment.
    RIP My friend and brother I thank God your in my life
    So long dance with the angels and say hello to Dikios
    Farewell my friend

  • Kaliopi Korras says:

    Antonio my friend, who will sing to me now?…

    Your warmth, humour and compassion will be missed – as will your booming voice and ability match a song to every (and I mean, EVERY) moment and occasion.

    My heart is heavy knowing we will never laugh about the lift at Redfern together again but you will never stop bringing a smile to my face.

    Rest peacefully.
