I am so sorry to hear of Anthony's passing. I ran track with him at South Iredell and have thought of him many times since then. He was such a nice guy and a generous friend. I was honored to have known him. Rest in Peace.

I served with Drill Sgt. Luckey in the US Army Reserves. He was an outstanding Drill Sgt. and very nice friend to have.
He always had something funny to tell you. So sorry to hear of his passing at still an early age.
