Anthony Andrighetto, 21, was 'terrific athlete'

Original post made on Oct 25, 2011

Anthony C. Andrighetto grew up a Woodside kid in a Portola Valley neighborhood -- Woodside's Family Farm/Hidden Valley is surrounded by Portola Valley -- went to school in Menlo Park and Mountain View, and played sports wherever he went, including Little League, Pop Warner and, most recently, intramural sports at the University of Arizona.

I didn't know Anthony personally but my middle son, Sam, played Pop Warner with him when they were 9 or 10 years old. I can say without hesitation that Anthony was one of the toughest kids I've ever seen on a football field at any youth sports level. He would lower his shoulder and hit even the biggest player as hard as he could every time. What a sad loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I used to live in Tucson and in 1989 (22 years ago!) I witnessed a girl being run down because of one of these unprotected left turns. This young women was in a coma for a few days until she died and I'll never forget her eyes as she watched the truck coming at her. I was screaming and honking my horn when I realized the truck didn't see her. This was 22 years ago and how many people have died since then because of this traffic light flaw? My heart now goes out to Anthony and his family.

"Marco, is actually Mario." Anthony was one of the best people I have ever met in my life. I talked to him ONCE through one of his brothers and because of Anthony I got to know his family. He is an inspiration to me every day. Him and his family are the definition of an all-american family.

Anthony was my cousins cousin. It sounds distant, but our family is very close, I call his grandma Nona Gina. I mainly know his only sister, Mary, but the entire family is what every family strives to be. They are all close and they all love each other, no fake smiles.
