Tony was Hayley’s everything and vice versa…soulmates was not an understatement.

According to the GoFundMe, his partner is taking Knight’s death hard.

“Hayley is now living her worst nightmare and facing life without Tony, her soulmate,” Allen writes. “She is in Bouillac having to deal with the difficulties of Tony being an Englishman with Australian residency living in France, arranging a funeral, covering hospital expenses, meeting police detectives, doctors and the mayor, visiting the accident site and sorting Tony’s estate, all while experiencing a crushing amount of grief and disbelief in a foreign country.”Outside of his comedy work, Knight worked with dogs. He was also known as the Dog Listener. He “helped thousands of dog owners all over the world solve problem dog behavior with simple techniques that use no force, pain, domination, drugs or gadgets.”

Following his passing, another person wrote, “Jo and I and our children Paddy, Molly and Rosie adored Tony and are still in disbelief at this tragedy. He and Hayley were a wonderful team and visited us many times in NZ, most recently in March. Tony was a talented and loyal friend who loved life, and we loved him. We are sending all our love to dear Jan in England and Hayley in France.”
