Anthony Owens

Anthony Eugene Owens, 37 of Cypress, Texas, loving husband and father of 3 beautiful children, was called home by our Heavenly Father on Friday, October 26, 2012 in Denver, Colorado after receiving injuries due to an automobile accident. Also involved in the accident were best friend and brother-in-law, Tony Bolfing, and friend Tanner Flood. The friends were returning to Houston after a hunting trip with friend Justin Oberton in Meeker, Colorado. Tony and Tanner incurred moderate to severe injuries but were released from Vail Hospital Thursday night in what could only be described as a miracle. Anthony was born in Houston, Texas and raised by loving parents Susie Wilson, father, Gene Owens and step-father, Earle Wilson. He attended Cypress Creek high school where he met his wife, Tiffany Bolfing. The couple graduated in 1993, where after Anthony enlisted in the United States Army. He gratefully served his country for 3 years until receiving an Honorable Discharge and proceeding to Texas A&M to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Distribution. He attended St. Mary's Catholic Church and was baptized into the Church in 1998. Anthony was married to Tiffany in 2000, graduated in 2001, and began working at Ferrell North America in the oil and gas industry in Houston, Texas. Because Anthony was so devoted to his family, he decided to remain in Houston when the company transferred to Kansas, and began working at Enterprise Products. Anthony was a devoted, loving, hard working family man who always put his family first. He is survived by three precious children Rachael Allison (8), Joseph Anthony (4), and Sarah Katherine (2), wife Tiffany, father Gene Owens, grandfather Bob Bolfing, grandmother Rose LaMotta, in-laws Phil and Rose Anne Bolfing, Tony and Kate Davis Bolfing, Trina Bolfing and Tyler Robinson, nephews Davis and Dylan Bolfing, aunts and uncles Joe and Caroline Wissel, Angelo and Phyllis Russo, cousins Michelle Wissel Patrick, Elizabeth Wissel, Whitney Deiss Ramirez, Jack and Keeke Russo, Joe Russo, Rose Russo, and many Bolfing aunts, uncles and cousins. The family would like to thank those heroic people in Vail who courageously worked to pull Anthony from the wreckage, those who administered CPR, those who comforted Tanner and Tony as they waited for help to arrive, Dr. Lawrence at the Vail hospital for his compassion, and all of the nurses and doctors at Denver Health. Words cannot express our sincere appreciation to everyone at Enterprise Products for their help in making sure that Tiffany saw Anthony before he left to be with the Lord, and for all of the compassion and assistance you have offered since. You are all in our prayers.
