Daniel “Dan” L. Anthony Sr., 75, passed away in his Williamstown, NJ home on Friday, January 5, 2024, under the care of his family and hospice. He was a beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.  

Dan was born in Dayton, OH on August 11, 1948, to the late Tony and Dorothy Anthony. In 1987, he moved from Ohio to New Jersey and shortly after, he met his beloved wife, Patricia (Sooy) Anthony and they were married on April 22, 1989. They shared 35 years of love and adventure that included several cruises to Bermuda and the Caribbean. Dan was a long-time employee of Omega Engineering since November 12, 1990 and was always proud to show off the products that he made. 

Dan enjoyed golfing and spent most Saturdays on the golf course. Every year he looked forward to his annual trip to Santee Golf Course in Santee, SC where he shot his first hole in one. An avid sports fan, Dan loved the Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia Phillies, Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns. He is a proud member of the USBC Bowling Hall of Fame and has won many bowling tournaments around the country. He was proud of his opportunity to bowl in the U.S. Open. Also, an avid movie fan, he enjoyed going to the theater with his grandkids. He loved to tell stories of his youth and his accomplishments in life.

Daniel is survived by his loving son Daniel Anthony Jr. and stepsons Jack Jeffries, and Steve (Michele) Jeffries. He is also survived by his sister Toni (Dave) Sams and several loving grandchildren: Jessica Jeffries, Amanda (Joe) DiPrimio, Jake Anthony, Marin Jeffries, Toby Meehan, Finnegan Jeffries, Jackson Jeffries, Allison Jeffries, and his great-grandson Arron Lopez as well as many extended family and friends.
