On Monday, July 10th 2017, God recruited a special man to continue his service in a greater capacity. Gary Lee Anthony, 65, was called home to heaven. Every man has a history, and Gary is no different. On March 25th 1952, Gary was born in Thibodaux, Louisiana to Otis and Rosemary Anthony. Rosemary was honored and cherished by Gary, and he took care of her until she was called home herself in 1988. In August 1984, Gary met the love of his life, Phyllis Greathouse Talley. They knew they were meant to be and married November 9th 1987 in Burleson, Texas. Together, they loved and cared for the three children they shared together – Jeff Talley, Chris Anthony, and Heather Anthony. For many years Gary provided the love and support that elevated him to being a cherished patriarch of his family. Growing up an only child in a single parent home, Gary was blessed to have been such a large part of a big, blended family. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Phyllis, his son Jeff Talley and his wife Shelli; his son Chris Anthony and his wife Michelle Baier; as well as his daughter Heather Anthony. Gary was blessed with five grandchildren whom he cherished beyond words – Trey Talley, Ty Talley, Trynt Talley, Trypp Talley, and Vincent Baier Anthony. Other treasured members of Gary’s family include his brother in law Cody Greathouse and his wife Karen; their son Kelby Greathouse and his wife Lindsay, as well as their children Luke, Eli, and Noah; and their daughter Lori King and her husband Darryl, as well as their children Abby, Emmy and Charlie.
