Anthony Moncivais Obituary Abilene TX, Guadalupe Moncivais mourn Anthony Moncivais death
Anthony Moncivais Obituary, Death – It has been challenging for me to allow myself some mourning time, but I do not want anyone to miss out on hearing about my incredible younger brother, Anthony. Since Anthony and I were only separated by a year and one day in our births, it’s safe to say that we could have passed for twins.
We set our sights high and we continue to set our sights high, and the balance of our academic and extracurricular pursuits really propelled us forward. We were both in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) in high school, and he had a strong desire to join the military.
Anthony received a full scholarship to attend Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, because he graduated in the top 10% of his high school class. We couldn’t help but laugh at the fact that he was so close to picking MIS instead of Digital Entertainment Technology. In his first year, homeboy ended up appearing in a publication and doing everything else that was required.
During this time, he has made some incredible friends and made the decision to put in the effort necessary to qualify for Marine Corps Boot Camp. He moved from Poole to Recruit after losing a significant amount of weight (far more effectively than I, LOL).
Because he was in one of the first groups of recruits to go through COVID’s training, his boot camp lasted for 16 weeks rather than the typical 13 weeks. On the 16th of July in the year 2020, Recruit Anthony Moncivais was officially inducted into the Marine Corps.
Because of COVID, he had to start preparing to move to Rhode Island right after he graduated from high school so that he could enroll in a program that specialized in aviation information systems.
On May 7th, 2021, he graduated in Newport, Rhode Island, and he was now prepared to travel back to Abilene and start working at ACU. However, he planned to spend certain weekends and a greater portion of his time in Fort Worth to fulfill his responsibilities.
In one of our last talks, we talked about how we had initially planned to complete college in the school year 2022-2023, but due to a number of circumstances, we ended up graduating in the school year 2023-2024 instead. When Denny Chimes would interrupt our talk, I’ll always remember him complaining as we sat on the steps outside Gorgas and continued our conversation.
Anthony was not just one of the funniest people I know, but also one of the most realistic and intelligent, and I am so proud of how far he has come. On May 6th, I really wish I didn’t have to type everything out and could instead just give him a tight hug.
I will never stop being proud of my broski, and I have no doubt that he is finally at rest. We want to express our gratitude to everyone who has reached out to us and say how much we appreciate the love and prayers that everyone has been sending our way. I’ll keep y’all updated once we get funeral plans in order.
