Anthony Robert Nagore tragically passed away at the age of 17 on July 19, 2021 in Farmington, CT. He was born May 14, 2004 in Tucson, Arizona.
Anthony called many places home over the course of his life. He lived in Tucson, AZ, Bucklin, KS and spent the last three summers in Plainville, CT. Anthony had friends and family who loved him dearly in many states. Last year he attended Immaculate Heart High School in Tucson, and was slated to return to Bucklin High School in KS this fall. Anthony loved greatly and all who knew him called Anthony a friend. Family and friends looked forward to seeing Anthony’s smile and receiving an intense hug. He was adventurous and enjoyed time outdoors either playing basketball, running, or spending time with his siblings and many cousins. Anthony was a fun loving, yet hard-working young man. He was very proud of his accomplishments. Anthony could light up a room with his smile and was always respectful with a pure heart of gold. He will be missed immensely by all that crossed paths with him. His family and friends will hold dear to their hearts all the fond memories they have shared with Anthony over the years.
