Annan - Ants

We all think of you with love today but that is nothing new we thought about you yesterday & days before that too we think of you in silence we often speak your name all we have are memories & your picture in a frame your memory is our keepsake with which we'll never part god has you in his keeping we have you in our hearts We didn't get to see you you were taken far to soon we'll know you're watching over us when we stop & look at the moon. Caz & family, My thoughts & sincere sympathy are with you during this terrible time of sadness. I know nothing can take away the intensity of your pain but I just wanted to let you know that I am with you in thought & I wish I could have been there today for you. I will see you when you get to NZ. Much love & loads of hugs Deb - NZ
A real nice guy
I met and got to know Ants during his time at Berwick Forest and I have and will always have the fondest memories of Ants as a fun loving cheeky young man and his lovely smile. The same warm smile in the photos used during the news over the past week, an anxious and very long week. Ants was a respectful lad that I was privileged to meet and share some happy times with. Shattered by his death, and I offer my deepest sympathy and kindest wishes all his family and friends. Arohamai Ants.
I was only a little girl when I knew you, barely 7-8, but man I loved you. You were larger than life, a super hero in a little girls mind; and when later in life I heard you were flying helicopters I thought, "yeah, that totally works!" You always took the time to talk to me, to make me laugh and I’ll never forget thinking my heart was going to break the night you took my older sister to her school ball! In reality that would occur a week ago today, when I learnt it was you missing in PNG. Nearing 35 years old now, it is a huge testimony of a person’s character to have such a strong impact after all these years. Love and heartfelt condolences to your loved ones Antz, I know the Fluxs will never forget you.
A bloody good man
Sad news to say the least. I in some way have met all his family including his Mum and Dad now passed. All of them nic epeople and a pleasure to know. Ant and I enjoyed a few beers at scholl and plenty of driving about in his MarkIII Zephyr from memory. Although not a real close friend he will be remembered by me as always having a happy smile and a great personality. I had forgotted that he had worked for the forrestry until I read the other message. His Dad worked across from me and often called to see my Father on business. My kindest wishes go to his family and I am sure wide range of friends. Carl
Who could forget
Anthony Annan ..... Such a tragic loss. Ant was a year or two ahead of me at Dunstan High, Alexandra, and his family just lived down the road from mine. I can admit to having a crush on him as he was one of those boys that just had that awesome smile and easy going nature about him that you couldnt help but be awestruck. The Annan family have had so much loss that losing Ant like this is hard to comprehend - life is just not fair. My deepest sympathies and heartfelt thoughts go out to you all.
Ants worked at Berwick Forest first as a trainee woodsman and later posted as a Graduate Woodsman. Berwick Forest being close to the Taieri and Momona airports suited Ants and he often slipped away to further his aviation career. He was immensely popular with everyone. His cheeky contagious smile will live on in our memories. Many people worked and lived at Berwick in the 10 years I was the Forest Manager there. Some are lost in memory with time. Not Ants. Just one of nature's good guys.
