Anthony “Tony” Dupuis
January 4, 1989 – May 16, 2009

Tony went home to be with our Lord on May 16 of this year. Those of us who knew him well, knew him to be a God-fearing man who loved his country, his family, and his friends. On his MySpace page he listed God as someone he wanted to meet and he unabashedly prayed over every meal, no matter how small. His example of faith reminds us to be strong.

Patriotism ran in his blood. Even as a child, Tony would salute the flag without being told to. He loved cars and aspired to be a mechanic in the Army; a dream that was very near realization when he was called home. We feel certain that he is now flying high above just as the eagle that he has admired his entire life.

Though Tony was only 20 years old, he touched the lives of not only family and friends, but also strangers and soldiers worldwide. His travels left a trail of friends all over the globe and everywhere he went he loved to make people laugh. Always the kind, giving, considerate soul, he found compassion in his heart for the homeless and underprivileged. He would always urge us to give when we could.

Though he left us much too soon, he lived those years on earth fully and purposely.

Tony enjoyed spending time with those he loved and called Stayton his home. We take comfort in knowing that Tony is now with his Father in Heaven. Tony is survived by his mother, sister, step-father, and father.
