Anthony J. Perez was born June 7th, 1981. For as long as anyone could remember, he was a person full of so much life, laughter, and love. He was a beloved son to Maritza Frau and Augustine Perez, who were parents that loved him dearly. He married his high school sweetheart Renee, and became a fantastic father to two beautiful children, Julian and Kaylee who absolutely valued and cherished him. Anthony was loved by so many including aunts, and uncles, cousins, and his very best friends Gina and Steve who loved him like a brother. Anthony loved taking long rides on his motorcycle, camping, listening to music, watching absolutely every informational alien documentary out there, taking adventurous nature walks, watching his favorite crime shows, collecting toys and numerous collector items, and he loved listening to music more than anything. Hanging out with his close friends, he could walk into any room and make people smile and laugh. He always said that being a father was his proudest moment in life. When it came to those he loved, Anthony was highly valued for the way he loved his family and his dearest friends. No matter the time of day, or where we were, he would always put his favorite songs by Rüfüs Du Sol on and do his giddy little dances. There was never a time that Anthony didn’t want to listen to music. He was an aura of energy, always talking and sharing his funniest memories with his closest friends and family. No matter what life handed him, Anthony never gave up on the things he wanted in life, he always would tell you to push towards your biggest dreams and fears. He always told everyone around him to never ever settle for less and to keep pushing for the bigger things in life. When it came to showing his love and unconditional support for those around him, he would never disappoint. He loved traveling, especially to see the beautiful blue seas of Florida. Anthony was always down for an adventure. He was always willing to show his unconditional positive regard for those in times of need, and he was someone you could always go to for a motivational speech or life advice without ever holding judgment. He will always hold the roles of being a great dad, a wonderful friend and a great son who will be loved and missed forever.

With our deepest condolences from "The Davila Family" he will be missed. When I use to take him with me to shoot some hoops, he would laugh and say that I sucked at basketball, well he was right. Dear Anthony, I will see you someday... but not yet ...
