Anthony was a promising rare bookman with a wicked sense of humor. He was also a champion mountain cyclist with a great sense of joie de vivre and loved all people and cultures. Anthony was in perfect physical condition, and his physicians believe he overtrained. Like some young athletes, he died of an enlarged heart without any warning. Tragic irony.
