He attended Lomond View Elementary, Orion Jr, and Weber High. He was passionate about horticulture, music and the outdoors.
Anthony loved to write songs and poems, and enjoyed the arts of blowing glass, geology, and light work.
Anthony had a gift of loving people. Everywhere he went he tried to make it as beautiful and positive as possible. He had a contagious smile a hug and an open heart for everyone he met.
Anthony was generous and wanted to help other people. He would have given the shirt off his back if he thought it would help someone. He was a very free and independent soul.
He changed the way many people viewed the world by his gentle and nonjudgmental way. He had many friends that he called family.
He is survived by his father, Heber; his mother, Heather; his siblings: Alex (Jen), Lorah, Lizzie, and Melanie. He is also survived by his grandparents, Joe and Sharon Gould, and Vern and Lola Child. He was preceded in death by his great-grandmother Johnson.
