  2. God called home His son whom was hurting on the inside in which no one else could see, but God. Anthony was like a candle full of light and comradeship. Now he has returned to the source of life in faith and gratitude watching over us, blessings my cousin.. love Nikki Conley!!!

  3. I feel so fortunate to have known Anthony. He never failed to brighten my day with his smile and infectious laugh. He and had some great conversations. When my Mom died this past July Anthony made a point to stop by my office privately and say how sorry he was. Anthony was always that thoughtful, and I will never forget that.

  4. To the family of Anthony, you have my deepest condolences. I was Anthony’s Company Gunnery Sergeant and Platoon Sergeant, Echo Company, 2d BN 1st Marines. I’m deeply saddened by his passing and can tell you it was true honor to work with such an amazing Marine. There are no words that can describe the caliber of Marine I remember him as, but can assure you that he will be greatly missed by all of us who knew him as well as worked with him. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss and if there is anything me or my family can do please let me know.

    Semper Fidelis,
