Paul D. Anthony

67, passed peacefully on Friday June 26, 2020 from complications of Parkinson's Disease . Paul was born in Canton, Ohio on December 29, 1952 in Canton, Ohio to Donald and Lucille Anthony. He attended Timken High School and Columbus University of Art and Design. He was vice- president and retired from A.V.C. Inc. in 2014. Paul was an avid gardener, there wasn't a flower or vegetable he could not grow.

Paul was preceded in death by his nephew Joseph Anthony, sister-in-law Linda Anthony, father Donald and mother Lucille. He leaves behind to miss him so deeply his brother Joseph Anthony and sister Carmela (Ray) Gonzalez; his beloved nieces and nephew Tonya, Maria, Lauren and Mike. He is also survived by his great nieces Megan, Olivia, Ava, Lila, Natalia and Nina, great nephews Joe, Trey, Rocco and Dominik. A special thank you to Jeff, Steve, Gene, Joe, Vicki, Elizabeth, Jean and Carol for their unwavering love, prayers and support for Paul. It is with much appreciation that we thank St. Joseph Care Center and the Alliance Community Care Center for Paul's care.

There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.

Our lives go on without you

But nothing is the same

We have to hide our heartache

When someone speaks your name

Sad are the hearts that love you

Silent are the tears that fall

Living here without you

Is the hardest part of all

You did so many things for us

Your heart was kind and true

And when we needed someone

We could always count on you

The special years will not return

When we are all together

But with love in our hearts

You walk with us forever

In loving memory of a wonderful person, my dear cousin. Paul was a beautiful soul who will live on in the memories of all those whose lives he touched, family and friends. May God bless Pauls spirit and those who keep his memory in their hearts.

I was very sad to read the news of Paul's passing. I did not know him well, I worked with him very briefly at Camelot Music but he was such a fun person and so much into things visual. The picture of him, even in black and white, shows the wonderful twinkle he seemed to always have in eyes.
My condolences to his family and friends. I am very sorry for your loss.

Dear Carmella and Ray and the rest of Pauls family, I am so sorry to hear of Pauls passing.
He was such a kind person and a talented artist and designer - and so handsome that my friend thought he looked like a movie star!
Paul also had a great sense of humor and wit and we used to call each other da sella in honor of Bill Alexander, the painter!
Ill always remember working with Paul when he was the art director at Camelot on paintings of album covers and then afterwards at AVC when he teamed up with Ray. Rest in peace my friend in Gods heavenly kingdom.
