Anthony, was affectionately known as “Aink,” by his loving wife, and to the grandkids it was “Paw Paw”. Paw Paw was our rescuer and he will let you know if you are in the wrong. In his younger years, he worked in foundry.Until he found his true talents such as fixing cars, working in the yard, creating inventions around the house, making furniture, cooking good meals or gardening. He loved to grow tomatoes, okra and turnip greens. He always had a bag of vegetables to give to his children or grandkids.He even planted an apple tree and saw it to grow.

He was always available to offer a helping hand whether it was to give great advice or even his opinion.He was well known and had many friends.  He had a big heart and was a social butterfly, he built a rapport with anyone he came in contact with. Also, he had a straightforwardness personality with a big sense of humor and said the best jokes especially the back in forth with his son Steve-O. His children and grandkids will always remember the fun memories they shared with him. One of the last things he said while lying in Hospice was to take care of your momma and we said we will and then he asked to face time her.Anthony was a blessing to our family for the many years he spent with us. We will truly miss him and we love you paw paw!!
