Steven affectionately known as Anthony possessed artistic cartooning abilities to which he used to display his love of music and movies. Anthony was a selfless man who gave freely to many without self-regard. He had the gift of gab which led him to have a plethora of friends and extended family with which he enjoyed spending time and sharing his love of music. Anthony loved to shop, and thrifting was his niche. Anthony often found solace at the gems he’d discover at the infamous “GW” aka Goodwill. He’d burst at the seams to share his finds.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
