    Anthony was a good friend and classmate. Always willing to go the extra mile to help those in need. He will be solely missed and remembered by me and the LHS class of 1956. God Bless. Tom Coopwood

    Anthony lived on the farm next to our farm on Old Fentress Rd. He was one of the first members of our LHS class of 1956 that I met after moving to Lockhart in the 40’s. I always knew him to be an honest, hardworking, helpful, true friend. In later years, Anthony was the one who always volunteered to drive his truck, pulling his trailer for our class to ride in the Chisholm Trail parades. Great memories of our class reunions!
    May you rest in peace Anthony. My deepest sympathy to your family and friends.
