Anthony Vitucci was 23-years-old when he passed. He had his first psychotic episode December of 2014. He was an avid soccer player, loved going to the beach and going fishing as well as working out at the gym. He was kind, caring and would help anyone in need. He was funny and always playing jokes on me (his mom). Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and frequently expressed how grateful he was for the devoted and diligent care we provided for him during his illness.

No fee or donation is required to attend.
