    My sincerest Condolences to The Entire Cozier family, on the Passing of My Friend Tony. I first met him when i Played Field Hockey for Combermere and than Combermere Old Scholars, and he was a Goal keeper for Pickwick. Not a great Goal keeper, but what a Gentleman, i will surely miss him, and his Contributions to his other Love “Cricket”.
    my he rest in Peace in Peace, and rise again someday with the Angels in Heaven.
    BTW: What type of person He was ?? when he saw the type of Goalkeeper pads his Namesake Arthur(Tony) Moore was using to represent Barbados Internationally, he Presented Tony with a Brand New pair of the Most Up to date Pads available at the Time.

    He will surely be missed. RIP.
