He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his uncle and aunt, David and Yvonne Romero; girlfriend, Brooklyn Thornton and her son Roman; brothers, Maico, Alejandro, and David; sister, Selena; father, Val Valenzuela, his fur baby, Nala, as well as many extended family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Blas and Berenice Valenzuela.
Anthony was a gifted writer, musician, cyclist, skateboarder, and artist. His talents knew no bounds, and he used them to spread happiness around him.

Even in times of hardship, Anthony remained optimistic and resilient. He found joy in making others smile and believed that laughter was the best medicine for healing our wounds. His ability to find joy in everything around him inspired many people to see the beauty in life despite any difficulties they may be facing.
