We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Waitt Funeral Home
Anthony Braxton, 50, of Boston, passed away on May 18, 2022. Anthony Braxton was born on April 15, 1972 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin to his proud parents, Ruby L. Braxton (Mother) and the late Thomas Braxton Sr. (Father). Anthony was a happy child from birth. He loved to laugh and just be jolly all the time. Anthony was very adventurous. Nothing could hold him down. If he didn’t want to be in his playpen, he would climb out.
Growing up he loved playing with his sisters and brother. One thing that was unusual was when he wanted to do his own thing. Although, Anthony and his Siblings were all in the same room, if he wanted to play by himself, he would separate himself from his brother and sisters. He was a boy’s boy and truly was a joy to raise. As a child Anthony had a signature unibrow, which gifted him the nickname “Woofie”.
All of Anthony’s education was in Massachusetts. He graduated from Snowden High School in Boston, MA. Where he was on the basketball team and made several of his closes friendships. After graduating from high school, Anthony attended Salem State College. Where he was active in the Black Student Association and grew a love for the arts. He was a natural born actor and comedian. He made it his business to make all his friends laugh and keep a smile on their faces.
He worked for the Mass Turnpike Authority for 19 years until the governor decided to go digital at the tow booths. Most recently, He worked as a security guard for Allied Universal until his passing.
Anthony leaves behind his mother, Ruby Braxton, his sister Bernadette (Braxton) Ringels, his brother and lifetime roommate, Thomas Braxton Jr., his baby sister Belinda Braxton. His children Samara Leotta Braxton and Divine Anthony Braxton-Price. Anthony always respected the mothers of his two children: Teka Hicks and Unicque Price. He also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Anthony’s laughter, infectious smile and loving nature will surely be missed.
All are welcome to visitation Friday, May 27th from 5-7 p.m., followed by a 7 p.m. celebration of life at Waitt Funeral Home, 850 North Main St., Brockton. Private cremation.
