    We as people often forget the very fragility of which we are composed; yet we are reminded by those around us both near and far.

    I would like to believe that Anthony’s visit with us all, while short, was indeed as special as it was unique. The world is a far richer and warmer place as a result of this visit.

    Anthony’s life is truly a celebration on so many different levels, in so many ways, to so many people.

    Deandra; our hearts are with you right now. Thank you for sharing Anthony with as all.

  7. I knew Anthony since grade 6 at fairview elementary and he was one of the greatest people I will ever know. In grade 7 he asked me to the dance and that was my first big memory of Anthony. I remember walking the long way home with him just to spend more time with him. Over the last few years we drifted but in the last 6 months I saw him around a lot. He was always there for me no matter how far we drifted and he helped me a few months ago more than he will ever know. I was going through a tough time and he taught me about LOA, the law of averages. About how when life gets rough it can’t stay like that forever and just remember to be positive. He was an amazing peice of my life and he will be dearly missed, but I know he’s smiling down on us and his laugh will forever run though my head and give me a smile. He touched so many people with his kind heart and everyone knew him for the right reasons. Because he was a genuine boy with an amazing personality.

    You guys raised such a great man that impacted us all. I love Anthony to death, and he taught me to always be positive no matter what hard times life brings you. I feel like Anthony wants you guys to keep your heads up because he loves you guys and wants you guys to enjoy your lives to the fullest. He will always be in our hearts, and he is watching us from heaven. He was one of my bros, and I spent a lot of quality time with him. I wish I could spend one more day with Anthony.

God Bless You

  17. Our deepest condolences to the entire Gagnon family and all of Anthony’s friends. Cole introduced me to Anthony after the Belmont game in North Van a few years back.

    Dear Mrs. & Mr. Gagnon,
    Anthony was such a great man. He could make anyone smile on any day and was always such a positive person. For myself walking on the football field for the first time with him I always had to look over at my fellow cornerback and he would make sure I knew what I was doing. Over the two years I knew him he became a great person to be around and even a better teammate. The whole community wishes you guys the best, our prayers & condolences are with you. ” Only the good die young “

  22. Kim, Gail and Bill Hendrie

    Deandra, Austin, Mike and Angie It’s a blessing to have had Anthony in our lives. His precence and smile will ever be in our hearts. Our thoughts are with you, our prayers are for you and our love surrounds you. Kim , Bill and Gail Hendrie (Rashaun’s grandparents)

  24. Katherine And Darren Sheldon Rowley

    We have known Anthoney since he was in Beavers. I had the pleasure of being a Scout Leader with his amazing Mom Deandra. And then had the pleasure of being the Medical Trainer for the Knights Football team and having Anthoney play football with us he will always be remebered for being a great football player and a great kid who always had a big heart and a smile that would light up a room. I will always remember you a great kid who was taken away too young. Make sure you reach for the stars cause you were a star. Even up there you will still be playing football. You will be so missed. Love Katherine Darren and Sheldon.

  25. My heart goes out to the family … when I coached Anthony he had just made the switch from soccer to football … hands of stone , but a heart of gold . It made me proud to see him develop into a good player and a great kid . You’ll be missed by all , it was truly a pleasure to have known you . Coach Bruce

  26. Dear Anthony’s family I am deeply sorry for your loss, Anthony was a great kid and it was an honour to know him, I truly enjoyed sharing the experiences we went through on the field with him, he will be missed dearly

  27. Dear Mike, Angie, Deandra, Austin, Brina, Lenny and extended family and friends… my deepest condolences.

    I will always remember Anthony’s beautiful smile, mischeivious glint in his eye helping me yet again look for my lost keys, or teasing him when we were all piled into your tiny, tiny living watching the Super Bowl and the team Angie and I chose won! Hang onto your memories of this amazing young man and hopefully, those memories will bring you some small measure of comfort through the difficult days ahead. The world is a much sadder place without Anthony, but heaven just gained a beautiful spirit. I feel blessed to have known him.
    All my love… Tricia
