My wife Vickie and I finished building our house on Bermuda Lagoon in Westport just over two years ago. Anthony was our architect. His love of architecture, and erudition in architectural tradition and design, was always apparent. He listened closely to understand what we wanted, redirected us when we wanted to make bad decisions, and put his heart and soul into the design. The result speaks for itself. We hope his memory will live on in our dream house.
Rest in Peace.
