Anthony also known as gear head had so many things in life that he loved and had so much passion for. First being his wife, friends and family, next being his love for working whether it being on vehicles, around the house, or working on the farm. He was a gear head and when he got off work you could tell by his clothes. Growing up he was involved with motocross, and he always had a passion to get back on a bike. He also spent a lot of time snowmobiling with his friends. Anthony was known for his contagious smile that could light up a room, his big loud trucks, changing jobs, crown royal, playing roulette at the casino, cherry chapstick the ChapStick™ brand, smelling like a million dollars, helping out others in need, cowboy boots, and his animals Bear, Lucky, and Rufus.
