Stephen Anthony Obituary
ANTHONY, Stephen H. Of Wellfleet and Boston MA died at his home in Wellfleet on October 24, 2010, after a year-long struggle with pancreatic cancer. He was 73. Raised in Newton Center, he graduated from Hamilton College and later earned an MBA from Harvard Business School. Steve worked in real estate at New England Mutual Life Insurance Company for twenty years, and then became a founding partner of Copley Real Estate Advisors, where he remained until his retirement in 1994. The rapid growth and success of Copley, and his genuine fondness and respect for all the people who worked there, was a source of great satisfaction in his life. Steve lived in Wellesley for 27 years, and later had homes in Boston's Back Bay and Wellfleet. He had a very deep commitment to community service and Cape Cod conservation, and was a long time director at many organizations including Hamilton College, the Wellfleet Conservation Trust, The Community Builders, and many more. Steve will be remembered as a caring parent, mentor, and friend, whose conscientiousness was matched by his sense of humor and fun. He leaves Barbara, his wife of fifty years, his daughter Susan of Brooklyn NY, his daughter Emily and her husband David Maymudes of Seattle WA and their two children. He is also survived by brothers J. Danford of Bloomfield CT, Cushman of Yarmouth ME, David Smith of Wayland MA (husband of his late sister Caroline), Barbara's twin brother Dr. Philip Mead of Shelburne VT, and many nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at the Wellfleet Congregational Church on Saturday, November 6 at 1PM. A reception to remember Steve will be held at the Wellesley College Club on Wednesday, November 10 from 5 to 7:30PM. Memorial donations may be made to the Wellfleet Conservation Trust, PO Box 84, Wellfleet, MA 02667. For online condolences, visit www.nickersonfunerals.com
