Onyx is sadened to announce the passing of our beloved President, Tom Deafy.
He was a strong and dedicated person in the community and was always there to lend a helping hand. After 35 years of continuous sobriety, he led the way to helping so many on their own personal journey.
With sadness, we regret the passing of our President, Tom Deafy, on Tuesday 15 October 2019.
He will be sadly missed.
Kindly share any of your thoughts and stories on our Facebook page.
