Tacoma, Washington - It was a sad day, but Jesus called him home. As happy as we are he is out of pain, he will be sadly missed. My heart as his mother is crushed and broken. No parent should ever have to bury their child. John Floyd Anthony born October 12, 1956 went home to stay December 10, 2020. John was a wonderful son, husband and father. He is survived by his wife, Sandra "Sandy" K. Anthony; his mother, Billie Joe Tone; his son, John David Anthony; two daughters, Aperyl Marie Anthony and Julia Anthony Mustoe; and brother, David Rolland Anthony. He has 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. He was a retired car salesman with a host of friends and other family. We know that to be with God is to be happy and safe. We love you John. During this holiday season we will sing carols and lift our heads to say We love you and we miss you and we know your spirit is near.
Rest well my dear John, until we meet again.
