Sending lots of love to the Anthony’s. Chris was always the highlight of everyone’s day and or night. Every time he entered the room his smile and his eyes would light up the entire space. I will always love and cherish our memories together. He was always everyone’s biggest cheerleader and I wish I could tell him how amazing he was one more time.
Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you as you celebrate Chris’s beautiful life. I know he will live on in your heart.
Such an amazing person. Will be missed. He was so bubbly and sweet. Life of the party everywhere he went.
You’ll be miss. Rest In Peace.
Chris was the kindest, coolest, and most fun neighbor around. We had the best times relaxing at the pool and sharing our interests in music. Him and my husband were always laughing and making plans for the group of us neighbors to spend more time together. He was a true friend, supporter, and really brightened up everyone’s day with his attitude, smile, and heart. The world lost a bit of light, but I pray he stays shining on all of us. He was the best kind of friend. Sending lots of love to all of the Anthony’s. Rest in Paradise Chris

Sending healing prayers and love to the Anthony family my deepest condolences. Chris a kind and thoughtful person, often putting others first. You will be missed by so many, and continuously loved by all.
There are no words good enough explain the loss of a friend that brought joy everywhere he went. I had the privilege of knowing Chris through his relationship with one of my closest friends, Linda, his girlfriend. Some of my fondest memories out of college were shared with him. He drove my husband and I from the rehearsal to the venue for our wedding. He was there for football Sunday and threw Linda the best birthday bash I’ve ever seen. Chris had a way of being hospitable and welcoming and I never had doubt in my mind that he made my friend happiness and joy because he radiated it to anyone within the same room as him. He will remain forever in our hearts and memories.

It is with a heavy heart to have lost one of our favorite residents, neighbor and friend in our community.
Chris was outright one of the most genuine people and consistently exuded positivity through all his interactions. Chris made it a point to always stop in the office to say hi or just to sit and chat with the team to see how our days were going.
From many pool nights with other residents and friends to all of our community events, Chris was always there with a smile and made the energy of the room change to such light.
Our team is sending prayers and condolences to all loved ones, as he will be missed dearly.
Thank you for being you, Chris!

Our deepest condolences to the Anthony family and the many close friends of Chris. His love and concern for others was evident in all that he did. His countless hours of service will always be remembered and cherished. He was dearly loved by those who knew him. His legacy of kindness and love will live on with all who were blessed to know him.
Chris Anthony (I only knew him as elder Anthony and still insist on calling him that) was my first zone leader when I arrived in Wyoming. He was the happiest man I ever knew and always had a smile on his face. He was a source of inspiration and comfort when I first arrived in a new and unfamiliar environment where I was still thinking I was so far out of my element. I cherish the memory I have of him and the light he carried during my time serving in his zone.
Many Good memories that I will cherish. Hope Heaven is as beautiful as you imagined. I know your making music up there and playing Banana Pancakes haha. RIP.

Till we meet again Chris god bless with love Uncle Joe.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Antony family during this time. Chris was a kind soul and made everyone that he encountered smile. There was never a dull moment when he was around. Thank you for always being the sunshine on a gloomy day. Wishing I could hug you one last time and tell you how loved you were. This isn’t goodbye but see you later.

I am sorry for your loss. It is my prayer that God will bless and comfort Chris’s family and friends now and always.
You’re a good man Chris. You brought a lot of good to our church. We will miss you here in TX.
Our deepest condolences to the family. Chris will be missed here and Heidi and I truly enjoyed our time around him in Frisco areas. He once took Heidi and I to explore his “driverless car” project and he was so proud of being a part of that opportunity and his involvement. We will surely miss him.
