Obituary for Anthony M. "Ant" Luna
Loving son, brother, tio, nephew, cousin, and friend
Anthony M. Luna, 24, of Lowell, died unexpectedly on February 17, 2018, in Lowell, from injuries sustained during a senseless act of gun violence.
Born in Lowell, May 3, 1993, he was the son of Jose A. Luna and Deborah Murphy-Luna of Lowell. He graduated from Lowell High School with the Class of 2011.
Anthony enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially at cookouts, parties, and his famous pig roasts. An excellent cook, he often entertained family and friends at home. Even if you arrived having just had a meal, “Chef Peping” made sure you ate, yet again.
Whether hiking woodland trails or walking the Merrimack River with his beloved dog Ginger Mae, Anthony’s greatest passion was being outdoors. He was an avid fisherman, loved a good bonfire, enjoyed spending time at the ocean, going to sporting events, taking family vacations, and long rides on his motorcycle.
Anthony was larger than life, with the biggest, most beautiful smile that lit up the room from the moment he entered. Blessed with an outgoing, charismatic personality, he was always the life of the party, making people laugh until they cried. Ant took great pride in his singing - especially his wannabe rapping, and his many special dance moves.
Putting others first was Anthony’s most special gift, and he was well known for helping anyone in need, no matter what the day or time. Kind-hearted and caring, he will always be remembered for his quick wit, love of family, and devotion to friends.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his fiancée, Kourtney “Kourty B” Brown, two brothers, Scott Luna and Kaiden Luna, his maternal grandmother, Gail Noon, his paternal grandparents, Jose and Rose Luna, a very special niece, Emma Luna, and many close aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was the beloved grandson of the late Ronald “Bumpa” Murphy.
