Anthony Gaines's Homegoing Service

All funds will be used to cover expenses. Any remaining proceeds will be donated to his family.

Marine veteran Anthony Gaines, a dedicated father, loving son, devoted brother, uncle, cousin, and friend, on Thursday, November 23, 2017 about 12:05 a.m., was killed, after a 19-year-old drunken-driver crashed into Anthony's home, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Here's a link to the news story.

A 42-year-old native of Flint, Michigan, Anthony was an outstanding father of two sons, who were also in the house, when the crash occurred. While Anthony, my cousin, is no longer with us, his sons are fine and were treated for minor physical injuries.

Our family, his sons, his parents, and his sisters need your help, raising enough money to transport my cousin to Flint, Michigan and cover all expenses for Anthony's homegoing.

Anthony was a man of God, and he loved serving as a Marine. Now, we ask that we can serve him, by giving and supporting. Our need is to provide him, especially his sons, with proper burial of love, gratitude, and sacrifice.

Whatever you can give, right now, will be a blessing to our family, as we plan to make arrangements, in the following days. We hope to hold services in the coming week of November 27, 2017. The family will announce all arrangements, when finalized.

Anthony's parents will be in charge of distributing the funds for expenses.

Please give today! 

God bless you all,
Rondee Gaines
