Obituary of Anthony Holder
Crispin Anthony Holder, 44, died on Sunday, September 4, 2022, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick. Born in East Orange, he was the son of Crispin and Joan (Chandler) Holder. Anthony or Chris, as many knew him as, grew up in Franklin Park. He was a graduate of Franklin Township High School, class of 1996, where he played trumpet in the marching band. Prior to his illness he was attending classes at Nyack College and worked in concession stands at the Prudential Center for two years. Anthony’s love and peace came from the Lord.

Nothing brought Anthony more peace than gospel music and the love for his family.
