    So sad to hear about the passing of such a great person. I deployed with Anthony in 2019 and I would often see him around the base. He would always greet me with the biggest smile and our conversations were always so positive and uplifting. May he rest in peace. Praying for his family and his loved ones during this difficult time..

    Anthony had a tireless dedication to lifting up others. I served with him in the Air National Guard and he was personally invested in the growth of every person junior to him and the welfare of everyone around him. We are fortunate to have known him and called him a friend- he will be greatly missed.

    We met in 2019 in Kuwait and as I was going through so much, he helped me keep a smile on my face. I am so sorry. I wish you knew that you could’ve talked to me. Rest in Peace and keep an eye on your loved ones down here.

    Anthony was an amazing person we met when he was stationed at Mcguire AFB he was always outspoken, friendly and a gentleman. His parents raised a respectable young man he will truly be missed.

    I extend my heartfelt condolences to Anthony’s family, friends, and coworkers. I had the privilege of knowing Anthony and serving with him in the Chaplain Corps at the 106 RQW. Anthony had an affectionate smile, was truly kind, soft spoken, and a man of strong faith. He was admired by his peers and a beloved Religious Affairs Airman. Anthony’s spirit will live on through the spiritual care and love we provide to Airmen in his memory. May he rest in peace in the loving arms of God.
