Anthony embraced all life offered as a husband, father, son, brother, and friend, giving fully of himself. He was as quick with kind words and thoughtful gestures as he was with jokes to share the mirth of life or to ease sorrows of those around him. Generosity and hospitality were his default, virtuous traits he shared with his father. His greatest joy was celebrating his life with Katherine, Anthony, Georgia, Lily Grace and Frederick, enjoying afternoons on Cross Lake, cheering on the LSU Tigers, competing cheerfully with local tennis clubs, and lingering happily over family meals.

He was a successful businessman, working for the past three decades in pharmaceutical sales management. He nurtured lasting friendships in his work, and the outpouring of support from his colleagues, including former associates around the country, is a testament to the depths of joy his friends felt in his presence. He was a proud member of DKE fraternity, and counted his brothers as family who gave him fodder for a lifetime of yarns and laughter. He cherished his annual retreat to Manresa in Convent, Louisiana, and the men who shared that journey with him.

The Carmody and Beach family wishes to express our sincere gratitude to the doctors and nurses at Willis Knighton Medical Center - Pierremont for their efforts to save Anthony.

The family requests that memorials be made in memory of Anthony to St. Joseph Catholic School, 1210 Anniston Avenue, Shreveport, LA 71105, or to Loyola College Prep, 921 Jordan Street, Shreveport, LA 71104.
