 In 1980, Anthony Charles Fordyce enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the age of 18 and valued his service highly. He served in the U.S. Navy for over 10 years.

 Tony was a passionate man with a vivacious spirit who loved his family dearly. He was a friend to many and was known for his big heart. Tony was passionate about many things, especially cooking. Sundays were infamous for feasting with family. Cooking was how he made his love visible. Tony dedicated his Sundays to family dinner, football, and Yellowstone. There was a great complexity to him, he knew the importance of family and enjoyed his time spent with family and friends. Anthony’s strength was in his character. He was a strong man, a great man of wisdom and understanding, family was always his top priority. His love and generosity was beyond measure.
 Anthony, “Tony”, “Papa”, or known by his Navy buddies as “Skin”, or however you may remember him, will live in our hearts forever and will be remembered always by his wife, children, grandchildren, sisters, nieces, nephews, and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.
