Condolences for Anthony Williams

Charles & Cheryl Cole posted on 11/28/19

To Anthony’s family - we’re so sorry to hear of this untimely loss. We both had the honor of working with Anthony in the past at Norfolk Environmental Stormwater. He was such a great guy to be around because he always made us laugh and made the day so much better. He was the kind of person who could fit in with any group of people and make every one of them feel like an old friend. Our favorite memory of him is actually from a random occurrence. We were driving down I-264 towards Norfolk in a big Ford F-150 V8 when a little VW Beetle suddenly shot past us. There in the drivers seat was Anthony, laughing at us as he passed. Classic Anthony!

Teresa, Ron(Duck), and James, we share in this time of grief but also share in the love and memories of Ant. Ant was my main man and in the early day's we discovered many things in life together. Even though we had not talked in several years, I still feel a connection to Ant. I was there when he gained his love for cars because we started building model cars at a very young age and we were good at it, he was always much better at it than me because he payed so much attention to detail. You may not know it but I was the one to introduce Ant to jazz, I remember discussing music with him and at that time he was focused on main stream old school R&B such as the O'jays etc... I took him to my house and explained to him that jazz was a different kind of art form "Just listen to the precision of the artist" I told him and imagine seeing them playing this music live. He understood and began to listen himself. Before long were were exchanging new songs and new artist. I got Anthony his first job at Mr. Steak in Military Circle, we worked together for several years. Even working together Anthony was always very good at what he did and that created opportunity for him. I remember Aunt Mary and Grandma taking care of business in that house, they didn't play!!! Wow, I have truly lost a piece of me in Ant's passing as I know you have. I will never forget you my friend.
