Anthony was born Feb. 20, 2005, at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.
"Even though he was so young, he smiled and laughed a lot. He would talk baby talk and always had bright eyes. Anthony always smiled at his mom and dad, even when he woke up in the mornings. Anytime he heard their voices, he kept looking until he found them. He was very precious and very well loved by his family, and now has gone to be with his grandmother," his family said.
Anthony was preceded in death by his grandmother, Annie Bright.
He is survived by his parents, Bennie Bright and Kathy Carr of Ninilchik; grandparents, Richard and Cheri Carr of Ninilchik and Elliot Olanna of Shishmaref; aunts and uncles, George Olanna Sr., Wilfred Olanna Sr., Albert Olanna, Edward Olanna, Richard Olanna, Ralph, Warren and Perry Olanna, Sharon and Elmer Nayokpuk, Ida Weyauvanna, Marion Baumel, Minnie Olanna, Mary Olanna, Fannie Nassukand, Angi Hoskins, LaTisha Carr and Kimberly Carr; and numerous cousins in Idaho and Alaska.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial donations be sent to them at P.O. Box 39393, Ninilchik, AK 99639. The family plans to use the money to get a headstone for Anthony.
Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
