Who ever wrote this obviously didn’t know him! In reality he was a disgusting, two faced, conniving loser who smoked like a chimney. He was a shitty father and an even shittier son.
I agree wholeheartedly with Leah Rasmussen! I lived with him for over 2years, he was also a pathological liar and a cheater! In two years, I never knew he had a brother and four sisters, I met two of his sisters, he never told me of a brother or the other two sisters. He told me he was in Vietnam, but his age didn’t match up. I found out he was a security officer in the airforce, not a cop. He told me he trained in fort bragg in special forces, I checked that out, and he didn’t. He was definitely “off”. I knew he wouldn’t live very long. He also told me his son Anthony was his sister’s kid, even though I told him I thought Anthony looked just like him. I caught him with his ex-girlfriend cheating on me, and I left.
I don’t know you and I’m glad I don’t but you have no business running your mouth about my brother. I’m sure all he remembered about you was the top of your head anyhow! Btw, aren’t you a bit old by now to be holding on to old baggage. Grow up and begin a life. And butt out of ours. I expect stupidity out of the one whom commented prior to yours but who the F??? Are you?
Marie, the child Anthony listed in the obituary is actually Linda’s adopted son whom MY father looked at as his own son. The ONLY biological child he had was me. The other Anthony you are referring to is my cousin who belongs to my Aunt Jeanne, that was his nephew when you guys were dating well OVER 20 yrs ago. The man was in no way perfect but this was unnecessary at best. You two are a little late to the party considering it took over 2 yrs to voice your unwarranted option.
