Anthony James Vigil passed away on September 11, 2021 at the age of 36. He was born on January 22, 1985 in Santa Fe, NM. Anthony was the greatest example of a husband, father, son and brother anyone could ever ask for. He was faithful in his walk with Jesus and he read the whole bible before he left us.
Anthony was a gentle giant who had an infectious smile. No matter where Anthony went, he was kind, loving and generous. He devoted his time to his family. FAMILY meant the world to him.
Anthony was an amazing father who taught his children to follow Christ and he loved his wife dearly.
If Anthony, was not with his wife or four loving children, he was with his second family Hope United Church on weekdays and weekends.
Every fall Anthony loved to go hunting with his father, his father’s friends and his friends. Anthony would always call his mom daily; they could talk for hours. He knew that mom always had the best advice. If he did not like mom’s opinion, he would call his sister for a second opinion.
One thing about him he never told his sisters secrets; he was his sister’s secret keeper.
Anthony’s death at a young age leaves a heartache that no one can heal, but his memories of love left, will be forever cherished.
