Sergeant Anthony Lassiter was drafted into the US Army in 1968 after graduating from high school and attending Dutchess Community College. He completed basic training at Fort Bragg and then moved to Presidio Army Garrison in San Francisco as a member of the Honor Guard Detail. In February 1969, Anthony was sent to the Republic of South Vietnam and six months later was injured by hostile forces. He was awarded a Purple Heart while recovering in a military hospital in Long Binh, medevac’d to Japan for more surgery, and then honorably discharged in November 1969.

Anthony had a 30-year career at IBM where he held several management positions working in the IBM Clubs, food service, and benefits office for retirees before he retired from IBM in 2000. He was a Sergeant with the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Tactical Squad and served his community in several organizations for the city of Beacon, the American Legion, VFW, Donate Life Organ Donation, and church food pantries.

Anthony and his wife Patricia have been married for 51 years and have been blessed with two sons and seven grandchildren. He loves the volunteer work he is involved in and would love to get back to golfing and being able to travel again. Anthony was diagnosed in 2006 with kidney disease and received his first kidney transplant in 2012, unfortunately, it failed in 2021 and he finds himself back on dialysis. His dream is to continue his volunteer work, continue being available for his wife and family, and get back to living a full life. Will you help Anthony fulfill this dream by sharing his story with everyone you know, or would you even consider becoming a kidney donor and giving him the gift of life?

Anthony has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
