Anthony “Tony” Lanum

Tony Lanum, 57, from Virginia Beach, died Saturday, December 9, 2017 at his bedside was his son Sean. Tony put up such a strong and silent fight against cancer. He took it in stride and many did not realize he was sick. He lived his life to the fullest to the very end.

Tony was the son of the late Betty and Carl Seckora.

Left to treasure his memory are two sons, Sean and Elliott; two brothers, Bob Lanum and Wayne Poulos; and two grandchildren, Andrea and Bryan Lanum. His son Christopher, an Army veteran, passed away in March 2009.

Tony was a Navy veteran. Tony was employed by CACI and was one of their premier program managers.  In his 13 years with CACI, Tony earned many of CACI’s most prestigious awards. Tony enjoyed flying, riding his Harley, driving corvettes, and merely any activity which allowed him to interact and socialize with others.  His passion was hiking with his sons. Tony touched the lives of many people and will be missed by many.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
