sight of the LORD is the death of his saints" (Psa.
Anthony's funeral was held at the Baptist Chapel, Holbeach, on Friday 31st January, 2014. The Church was full and many have come forward to request Bible studies. If funerals can be good, this was very good, a good farewell to a godly brother in Christ.

Brother Anthony pictured in the Holbeach Marshes, near his home at Holbeach, in the English Fens. The picture was taken in the summer 2013.
Anthony was a true servant of God; he had a great love of sharing the gospel at every given moment. For example, when shopping at the supermarket he would hand a leaflet to the checkout assistant. He always had a bundle of leaflets to cover any eventuality. He sought no chief seats or any kind of acclaim for his work in the church, but was truly a humble man and the church will miss him. He always sought the best in others and was ready to help. He never led a study, I never heard him preach, but through his example he taught me much for which I am grateful, he was a great teacher, he being dead still speaketh (Heb 11:14). Though he did not lead in lessons, he was always early for meetings, often by two hours during which time he was door knocking and sharing the gospel, inviting folks to attend and often with success. Anthony was always asking questions and always ready to learn, he was a true example of a Christian man, a servant of God.
For many years Anthony was a missionary in Guatemala, he lived with the locals, if they slept on earthen floors, Anthony slept on earthen floors, if they walked, Anthony walked, he ate what they ate, he had no luxuries whatsoever, just a simple hut that was home. He helped establish congregations and during this time he would return home to see his mum Nancy, this was when I met and started to know Anthony. Eventually he left Guatemala to live with his mum at Holbeach and became active in the Lordís work at Cambridge. Due to his enduring faithful witness, his mum, Nancy, was baptised. She passed about three years ago. Anthony never married, the church was his family.
Anthony and technology never mixed, we argued over him having email, I gave him a laptop and email address, the computer never came out of the box. If he had a mobile phone, it was in his car, switched off only for emergency use. He did in recent years relent a little, compromise was reached. On phoning him one day an answering machine burst into life, this was as far as he would go into the era of high-tech.
