Anthony lived in Oakdale for 38 years and loved our small town. He was a business owner contractor for 40+ years based out of the bay area, but had his office in town.
He served in the Army 1957-1959 in Fort Ord. While in the Military, he met his wife Carol in Kentucky and together they had eight children. Anthony loved his hobbies, which included spending time outdoors at his home that he called “The Ranch” with his chickens and riding horses. He loved to travel, gamble at the casinos, attend his grandsons’ baseball games, and spend time with family and friends. He was a very giving man that loved life and his family. He will be missed by many!
