Obituary for Anthony T. Shivers

SHIVERS Anthony Shivers AKA Tank Age 59 of Bridgeport, CT went home to be with his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday May 8th with his loving family by his side. Over the past eight years Anthony faught a good fight in his cancer battle. He never allowed cancer to slow him down and he'll be missed by many of his family and friends.

Born on August 28, 1958 in Dothan, Alabama, Anthony was a life-long resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut and a graduate of Central High School. He proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army.

Anthony is so affectionately known for his genuine passion and kindness for people everywhere and especially his San Francisco 49ers football team and LA Lakers basketball team. During his high school days at Central High School Anthony was known to be a standout football player.

One of his most passionate accomplishments was being ordained a minister of Jesus Christ at Open Arms Outreach Ministries. Recently Anthony has proudly served the Lord at Rebirth Healing & Deliverance Ministries up unto his final moments in this life as Elder Barrett. He actively participated in the street outreach ministry and prayer teams while assisting anywhere he can. Outside of his ministerial responsibilities, Anthony regularly received recognition for his volunteer service in helping those with addiction. He was a big guy with a soft heart for everyone and especially for the up and coming young people. Everyone who knew Tony knows he would take time to always listen and stay in contact with you regularly, that’s just Tony.

Anthony comes from a large family for which whom he loved dearly and will be missed by those he leaves behind: Brother - James Lee (Marie) - Georgia, Sister - Brenda Hall (Alexander) - Connecticut, Brother - John Barrett (Cheryl) - Connecticut, Brother - Martin Barrett (Nell) - Connecticut, Grandmother Hettie Grice - Dothan, AL, Aunt - Lois Brooks - South Carolina, Uncle John Carter (Sheila) - Virginia, Uncle - Bobby Carter - Alabama, Aunt - Dorothy Carroll - Virginia, Neices: Vernisha Lasley, Ovidia Lasley, Mary Grace, Jaiah Barrett; Nephews: Chavious Hall, Joel Hall, Javan Barrett, Joseph Barrett, Jeremiah Barrett along with a host of relatives and friends.
