I feel very fortunate to have known Anthony. He was a great friend of my daughter Karli and Andy. He brought his Grandson Colby to our house to hunt deer. He was so patient with the little guy. I think the world has lost a good man. I am sorry that we will never hear his voice and see Peg driving him in that huge red truck. God rest his sweet soul.

My deepest condolences for him and his family. I remember what a sweet kind individual he was to me every time I saw him at gatherings or if we just bumped into one another at the stores in town. I know his family will deeply miss. RIP Anthony.

Uncle Ant,
I will forever cherish our memories together, especially the memories involving hunting and fishing , something about those always seem special. You and I always went together every single year, and i was just thinking today; that I always begged my parents to let me skip school to go turkey hunting with you on opening day. I’ll be going tomorrow morning to be sure to get you a gobbler.
I always enjoyed hunting with you, because you always told me hunting stories about papaw. Now I will be sure to always tell your grandchildren hunting stories about you, and how much you loved them.
I love you Uncle Anthony Rest In Peace❀️

I love you Peggy and family. I'm lifting you up.
