My heart goes out to Anthony family and friends. Durning my time of knowing Anthony he was polite, kind, respectful, and loved his family and much more positive could be said about him.

He was one of my best friends thru high school and after. He was funny, kind, and always would have a fun time no matter what. I lived with him for a year as roommates and there was nothing he wouldn't do for me or any of our friends. He will be truly missed and loved by all. My love goes out to his family and friends. We'll miss you Anthony!!!

I have been friends with Anthony since 2003 and can say he was a true geniune friend , he would do anything to help a friend in need , he was a a huge seattle fan through and through , he loved his seahawks and his dreaded mariners no matter how good or bad they were. we went golfing a few weeks ago and everything seemed great he was happy , we talked about life relationships and golf and seahawks of course but nothing unusual . I am truly grateful to call him my friend and it deeply saddens me to know that we wont be able to hang out one more time . Monday Night Football was a debacle to the rest of the world but in my mind it was Anthony letting us know he was there .... Thanks for all the memories Anthony, you will be missed .

My prays go out to his family and friends. ~ALU and KMF will miss you!!

Hey baby, I know this isn't what you wanted. I know you loved life and everyone around you. Your contagious smile and gorgeous blue eyes will be deeply missed and could never be replaced by any other. You set the bar that no one else can or ever will reach. I am truly blessed to have spent the time that we had together but wish we had more. Everyone always told me how lucky I am to have you and they were right. I always knew it. I miss and love you so much. Love, Jenae, Austin, & Jax

Jenae, First and foremost i want to express my deepest sympathy to you during this time , myself and Courtney love you and are here for you . Anthony was very lucky to have you and dont ever forget that , everytime we talked it was about real stuff , family, life, golf, seahawks, but everytime he talked about you he lit up . He loved you and always will , please dont forget that. Anthony was a great friend and great man and I am lucky to know the both of you . We may never get answers to such a tragedy but one thing i know for sure , HE LOVED YOU and ALWAYS WILL.
