Tony Ormsby - 24

Stratford, ON - Construction
On September 29, 1998, our son’s third day at work, he was helping to move scaffolding. It hit major hydro lines. Tony was killed and three workers injured. There was a trial and the company and supervisor were found guilty and fired. Tony is our only son and was a bright light in our lives. His dream was to become a policeman. Tony is greatly missed.
