Anthony had many favorite hobbies he enjoyed playing and watching basketball, football and took part in fantasy football league. He loved spending time with his grandchildren. He loved going to the local Gold’s gym as well as Bronson Athletic club.

The value of importance was his grandchildren, his daughter and family. He cheered on the University of Wisconsin football team and respectfully hated University of Michigan football!

He had a charismatic personality, loved to joke, enjoyed movies and going out to eat for cheeseburger. He always enjoyed a good story, laugh and live music.

He had a phrase he would always say that would bring laughter to all “Oh Cmon”

His special friends: Phil Barns and family Usa Barns-Summa and Jim Summa, Ryan and Kelsey Patterson.

“In the end my father was a simple man, he made mistakes in life like we all do and felt the burden of those mistakes dearly. He loved his grandchildren blindly and cared deeply for my family. His untimely passing has been both shocking and heartbreaking. There will be no service per his request, but his ashes will be spread later in one of his favorite places with family and close friends. We ask for nothing except to enjoy football season and a good cheeseburger this fall in his memory”
