ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Anthony Sinsay. He was a husband, father, brother, chef, mentor, friend, and a listening ear to all. Whether you were comfortable with it or not, he brought joy to every room and was always himself. He will forever be missed in all the lives that knew him well. 

I love you, babe. Remember that time we fell in love and got married? Yeah, it was great.

To everyone who has reached out to me personally, donated to Anthony's funeral fund, first I want to say thank you for all of your love and support and for your understanding and allowance in giving me space during this difficult time. I have not been ignoring anyone by any means, having so many things to settle out has been taxing and difficult. That being said, I wanted to inform everyone that due to COVID the city is behind on many things including permits and funerals, and because of this, it will be at least two months until any sort of resting place is available for Anthony Sinsay. But everything has been taken care of as much as it can be, so thank you to everyone who has supported me and the kids through this. All of our love and appreciation to you all. As soon as I have a date for you, I will post that as well. Until then, everyone keep cooking, eating, and making inappropriate jokes.

You were always there to support a cause, help a friend, and cook your heart out. I never gave you back those tweezers you so willingly shared with me at Pairings with a Purpose years ago. I will keep them safe and guard them until I see you again. Cheers and love to you always, Rochelle & Olivier

Chef
I was always thrilled to see you. Your attitude, your giant hugs, your sheer talent, your slow claps. I am devastated. The world has lost a great man. Heaven has found quite a character. I hope I get to see you some day again. And I hope you slow clap me again when I arrive. Love you brother.

The complexity of thought that has run over me the past few days has led me to reflect much like others reading this. Thoughts of all the good times and hardwork my friend and I spent together. Hours of planning and creating and the time in the kitchen seemed endless. Then out of the blue a funny gesture or some profane loud funny statement broke the repeated deafening of machines and the noises within the kitchen. I noteably remember meeting at barnes and noble. We would spend hours reading over culinary and cooking books to stimulate our creativity. Howerver, it always led to gaining more knowledge followed by stronger opinions....and a coffee!

We lost a very talented and caring man. He was a father, husband, chef, poet, writer, comedian, painter (yes, I have one hanging in my house), and more! Most of all Anthony Sinsay was my Friend...

Words are not enough to express my emotions about your loss... the adventures we had in culinary school. We had each other’s backs but I always knew you’d be the best in our class solely based on how you talked about food. You had that passion that others did not. Seeing what passion looked from you helped seek my own. Love you for showing me that. I’ll see you again my friend.

Anthony was an amazing human being. When I needed support, he was one of the first people to stand up and he made everything not only less stressful but fun. I’ll never forget him introducing me to my favorite dish, Sisig, and setting impossible standards to find one as good as his. He will be missed greatly

So much love and laughter working with Anthony. Anyone in your path was given so much PURE joy. You were honest, unforgivingly yourself, and you loved people FULLY. You taught me so much in being an amazing leader and a good human being. Alex and I will miss you dearly. He really wishes he could have one more big squeeze and a kiss from you. Rest in power Anthony, you’re always in our hearts.

37 years we were given one of the greatest miracles
You fought til your last breath and I don't know how my life will be now that you are gone.
Death isn't new to me and is inevitable....just doesn't mean it doesn't hurt cuz this hurts more than anyone will ever know.
I know that you are free from all the pain and you are where God wants you to be.
Last Wednesday you cried and said I'm not afraid of dying but sad that my kids will be without me
Oh Anto if I could have given my life for you, I would
I will miss you and when it's my time, I hope to see you once again.
I LOVE YOU
Your sister, Tina

Chef,
From the first day I had the pleasure of meeting you I knew I was going to learn a great deal from you and I did!!! You impacted so many lives, you made a huge impact on me. I’m so very grateful for you and that I was able to learn from you. You taught me so many culinary techniques, how to be disciplined in the kitchen and how to respect food and the handling of it from you. It was such a great pleasure working with you. I’ll never forget the rubber chicken you used to carry around and the way you laughed (it was infectious) Thank you for everything. You will be missed greatly & never forgotten ❤️

Anthony... I love you brother. You will be missed. I am so grateful to have gotten to know you. Thank you so much for inspiring all of us with your humor, talent, and your warming heart. You will forever be missed... but we will see each other soon. Love you brother!

There are no words that can express how I am feeling at this point. The kids are devastated. What Anthony and I had hoped to be a more private and respected time of grief has now been opened up to the world. I wish I had more time. More time with him, more time for the kids to be with him, more time to have to grieve in solace. But here we are. It's too quiet without him here. There's no one to watch TV and talk shit with; there's no one who can make me laugh in just his special way. And the kids.... There is such a sadness in seeing your child cry for their parent who can no longer hold them and tell them they will be ok. But, he knew he was loved. Loved by his family and by everyone who knew him. So, I made this for all of you. To leave your memories, condolences, photos, and whatever you want to say. I am also leaving the GoFundMe page up for those who might want to contribute to funeral expenses. He loved everyone and was honored to be a part of the lives of those who grew right along with him. He was proud to be called Chef, and in true Sinsay fashion here's what he told me to tell you all, "Alright, get the fuck out and go cook something that doesn't suck" -Anthony.

A Noble Servant to all. A shining light to the most fortunate of friends.

Shared by Jarrid Masse on May 18, 2021
One of the best humans and hardest working chefs has departed this realm at such an early age. I was always humbled by this mans demeanor in the face of a storm. He lived his life in the most noble way. In service of others. I am honored to have worked beside him. He left this world better than before his entering it. His spirit and memory will always lead others to service. Which is always the truest and most noble path. I love you brother. May all the service and love you gave continue to aluminate this world and guid you to the great journey after. You are so loved.❤️❤️❤️

The baptism

Shared by Gabriel Chavez on May 18, 2021
Anthony and I became fast friends in culinary school. It was almost like we were the misfits who gravitated to each other. But truth was that while other classmates paired up for groups, Anthony and I, like two kids who were last to be picked on the playground ,we ended up together out of process of elimination. Yet within minutes we were laughing and joking as if we knew each other for years. Anthony would sometimes say he wouldn’t have made it out of culinary school had I not been there for him. Sure I saved his ass on a few occasions. But what he didn’t know that I knew and so did the rest of the class is that he was the most gifted of us all. 
our friendship grew and I would invite him to my families events. Once I invited him to my nieces baptism that was being held at the San Gabriel Mission. When he arrived, he was wearing an all white suit as he walked up i looked at him and was a bit puzzled. He had this big smile and was very proud of his white suit. I laughed a little and told him that it looks like he’s the one getting baptized. He said no one will think that. During the ceremony, in front of my very large family and the families of other kids being baptized, as the Priest  asked for all those being baptized to step forward, he turned to Anthony and said for him to also move forward. Anthony was like “What?!?!” The priest said “come forward to receive the Holy Spirit,” Anthony then said rather nervously  “I’m not getting baptized.” The Priest said “why not, you are dressed for it, are you afraid of a little water?” Anthony didn’t know what to say at that moment. The Priest then laughed and let him off the hook, he was joking with him, everyone laughed and it instantly made a somewhat quiet ceremony into a fun and memorable one. Til this day my family  remembers Anthony and his white suit. I have a picture of him in that suit that I do not have at this moment but I will publish it here once I get it. Miss you my brother.

Words can't express the sadness I feel. Not just for the lose or a great friend but for the family. Anthony what can I say we're can I even begin. I remember meeting you in school. I remember the white suit you wore to high school. I will even forget your great big smile and your infectious laugh. Your were always so loving, kind, sweet. You always made people's day. You always brightened up a room. You will forever be in our heart and you will be truly missed my friend.
