Obituary

Anthony T. Stevenson, Jr.  departed this life at his home on May 17, 2022. Anthony was born and raised in Hamilton Township, New Jersey.  He was educated in the Hamilton Township School District and a graduate of Hamilton High School West.  
 
He was employed for over twenty years as a laborer by Hamilton Township Department of Public Works. Anthony’s work ethics were noteworthy and missing work was not an option for him.  He was a loyal and dedicated employee.  
 
Anthony was a gifted athlete and played youth baseball in the Hamilton Little Lads, basketball in Hamilton PAL and Hamilton High School West, and soccer in the Hamilton Township Recreation League.  He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching the game. His favorite teams were the New York Giants and Knicks.  
 
Anthony was a charming, spirited, and generous soul. He enjoyed the simple pleasures of life; looking at family photos and reminiscing about the old days. He loved visiting the shore, hanging out on the boardwalk, spending time with his cousins and friends, playing games, going to the movie theater and shooting pool.  He was also known for his cooking—most notably, and comically, for his gigantic “Ant live” burgers; grilling his finest foods as a great barbecue chef. He was the epitome of living for the moment. 
 
Anthony was predeceased in death by his beloved mother Katie L. Glanton Stevenson; paternal grandfather James Eugene Stevenson; maternal grandfather Charlie Robert Glanton and maternal grandmother Geraldine Roberta Elmore; uncle Daniel Glanton; aunt Debbie Bright; and godfather Reverend Leon S. Alexander, Jr.   
 
Anthony leaves to cherish his memory, his father Anthony (Tony) Stevenson, Sr.; paternal grandmother Jacqueline Stevenson; aunts Rochelle Stevenson-Moore, Jacqueline Stevenson; Beverly Taylor (Frank), Ira Leach (Thurman), Charity Rivera (Jose), Bonnie, Annie, Paula Glanton, Sheila (Michael) Glanton-Derry; uncles Troy Stevenson, Larry (Angela), Dexter (Wakeelah) and Timothy Glanton; and great aunts Margaret “Peggy” Tarr and Dorothy Collins-Blake; great uncles Samuel “Bruce” (Louise) Turner, LaFronza (Cynthia) Smith; godson David Qiyon Law; godmother Reverend Lois Key-Alexander, special “uncles” Dewayne Tolbert; Xavier Moore and a host of cousins and friends.  
 
 
 
 
 
Do not judge a biography by its length, 
Nor by the number of pages in it. 
Judge it by the richness of it’s contents 
 
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant 
 
Do not judge a song by its duration 
Nor by the number of its notes 
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the soul 
 
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful
