BRINES, Anthony R. (Age 25) – Taken away too soon on August 13, 2020 in Spokane, WA. Anthony was born on January 21, 1995 in Spokane Valley, WA.
Anthony was a sweet, kind, and joyful child, and a loving and loyal big brother. He graduated from Central Valley High School in 2013, and went on to earn his AA at Spokane Falls Community College. In school he was smart and determined, a student athlete, and a friend to all. He had an expansive and genuine spirit, and always made others feel special and included. Anthony was a young man of integrity, a hard worker, responsible and conscientious. For the last few years of his life, he was a Correctional Officer, and was well-liked and respected by his coworkers. He was also optimistic, compassionate, kind-hearted, and generous. Anthony’s infectious smile brightened the hearts of all who met him. He was fun-loving and goofy, and loved to make everyone laugh. He loved spending time with family and friends, including watching football, and he was a die-hard Denver Broncos fan. Anthony had a passion for the outdoors, and was a natural athlete. He enjoyed hiking and camping, loved to run, and found joy in the freedom of riding motorcycles.
