So very sorry for your loss! I was in the military with Gulley many, many years ago (1984-85). He was a wonderful guy filled with love, joy and laughter and always looking out for all of us. I know he was a wonderful father. God bless you all and may he rest I. Heaven with all the other angels!

My deepest, heartfelt sympathy to the family. I have known Anthony since North High School, and was a member of his "What's Cookin/ Home Plates" FB page. The world will be a lot less brighter without him in it. May he Rest in the Arms of the Lord.

To the Gulley family; It is so sad to see someone leave us but God has His plans. Grief is a heavy emotion it leaves an emptiness and a new normal. Love that seems as if it has no where to go but you learn to channel it elsewhere. The ocean waves that will be so strong at times that you’ll feel like you can’t stand. But God will see you all through. He is with you always to the very end of times. The love that was seen today shows the man he was and is all of you his children and relatives. Let the legacy live on. Prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My condolences to the Gulley/Gay family. I grew up across the street from Anthony and his siblings and went to North High School with him. I cannot think of a more genuine person. They always say the Lord takes the good ones first. I will always remember walking through the halls of North High School with his football jersey on. He had a commanding presence when he entered a room you could not help but notice.

Cousin/Brother I am so hurt and we have been so close for so many years which made you more of a brother than 1st cousin. You always had a good heart, loved everyone, helped people, loved sports, loved to eat, and ALWAYS called and checked on me and/or came by. His famous words was (Aye cuz wyd? I know you cooked, what did you cook and what to pack up for him) 😌. Never had a selfish bone in your body and/or soul no matter what. You have given me so much knowledge and educated me on a lot. I will never forget the words and love you ALWAYS showed me. You were a GREAT MAN and have left your legend behind your name. I love you cousin/bro 💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤🤞🏾🤞🏾🤞🏾

I meet Gulley during the worst time of my life. He has always been a shoulder to lean on. Always willing to listen. Always giving guidance. Tony was like a brother. He would fuss when I needed fussing at. And He would give me a hug when I needed a hug. He has seen me through my worst and he got to see me climb out and reclaim myself. I will always love you. I will always miss you. To the family, my deepest condolences he was a GREAT man.

I met Anthony when he had taken my daughters senior pictures. He was such a professional sweet man! Years later I never thought that we would meet again. That he would have been my current husbands best friend. He would crack me up with his food critic opinions. He will definitely leave a void in our lives! I am praying for the Gulley family. RIH Anthony 💔❤️
