Obituary of Anthony Pentz

On June 11th Anthony Pentz age 63 of Lake Havasu City, AZ passed away after his long battle with cancer of the brain. He was welcomed into the next life by his wife Michell McCabe, his cat Peno, his brother Martin, his sister in-law Jane and parents Walda and Herman Pentz.

Anthony had a colorful and eventful life. He was born and raised in South Africa where he met Michell McCabe (Shelly) while she was an exchange student and had 4 wonderful children. He also had the opportunity to marry and love a second time to Beckie Argo. Anthony was a dreamer and a hard worker managing several family businesses over his lifetime. He was an avid fisherman who had the opportunity to fish various countries in Africa and many of the United States. He was part of the South African Team who represented South Africa in the Bass Masters Classic. His joy for life, fishing and traveling were lifestyles Anthony enjoyed and shared with his children. Anthony and his family immigrated to the US several times and most recently in 1999 to Lake Havasu City, AZ. He brought joy to those around him and can be remembered for his jingles, songs, humor, his long discussions, rugby, cussing, his love for music, naps on the couch, dancing, his accent and hugs.

Anthony is survived by family and many of his friends. His family include his four children and their partners: Kate and Gabriel, Tucker and Victoria, Courtney and Kevin, Matthew and Chelsea. His grandchildren: Gabriel Jr., Logan, Lloyd, George, Jackson and Evelyn. His brother Adrian Pentz in South Africa. Close family include the Argo's, McCabe's and his South African family.
