Anthony's professional journey took him on a path of service and expertise. For over two decades, he worked as a field service engineer for Omnicell which is based in California. His commitment to his work was evident in the twenty-one years he spent dedicated to improving the lives of others through his technical skills and knowledge.

His devotion to living a Christian life shone through in every aspect of his being. He cherished the time spent with his family and instilled within them values that will endure for generations to come.
