Anthony was born October 25, 1963, in Scottsbluff to John and Rachel (Quevedo) Longoria. He graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 1982. Anthony immediately entered the United States Navy and was honorably discharged on December 14, 1986. 

Anthony married Mary Perez and together they welcomed two children, Tasha and Zachary. The couple divorced after 34 years of marriage but remained close friends and companions.

Anthony worked for McDonnell Douglass Aviation from 1987 until 1992. He began working for Burlington Northern Railroad as a conductor in 1994 and stayed with the railroad for eighteen years, leaving in 2012.

He had an appreciation for classic cars and Harley Davidson bad bikes. Anthony enjoyed listening to alternative and rock ‘n roll music, especially while jamming out in his garage wrenching on his projects. He will be forever missed and remembered as one BMF. “You better duck when I show up, it’s Uncle Buck”.
