On September 18, 2012, our precious son and brother went home to be with the Lord. Although we already miss him so much, we find comfort in God’s promise found in 1Corinthians 2:9 “...Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

He came into the world on July 17, 1980 and was a “go-getter” right from the start. Growing up in Elko, he enjoyed spending much of his time hunting and fishing with his friends and family. After graduating from high school, Anthony moved to Reno to attend the University of Nevada, Reno. While attending UNR, Anthony spent a semester studying in Spain. His experience there always held a special place in his heart. He graduated with honors from UNR in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Supply Chain Management and a minor in Spanish. While working two jobs, he went on to earn his Masters of Business & Administration in finance in 2009.

Anthony was a member of Grace Baptist Church and had strong faith in God. He loved spending time with his big ol’ family and all of his friends. He enjoyed being outdoors fly fishing and hunting, competing in fun runs, marathons, and participating in fitness bootcamps. He was such a talented artist creating beautiful pottery, artwork, and photographs. He valued a strong work ethic and was a great example to so many. His smile could light up a room; to know him was to love him.

He will be remembered and missed by those who loved him so dearly: his loving Dad and Mama, Anson and JoJo Lostra; brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Carrie Lostra; his favorite nephew Pete Lostra; grandmas Mercedes Lostra and Joyce Perry, in addition to many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

In lieu of flowers the family would like any donations to be made to:

Elko High School Scholarship fund

Guidance Department

c/o Anthony Lostra Scholarship Fund

A celebration of Anthony’s life will be held Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at Grace Baptist Church located at 3030 N. 5th Street in Elko.
