IN LOVING MEMORY OF Anthony Albert Bright SUNRISE: September 8, 1981 SUNSET: May 24, 2017 Anthony Albert Bright was born on Tuesday, September 8, 1981, to William Gabriel Bright, Sr. (who preceded him in death) and Brenda Faye Bright in Los Angeles, California.As a child, Anthony was always happy, vibrant, energetic, and adventurous. He had a great sense of humor, was very caring, loved to laugh, and have a good time. At an early age, Anthony was a curious boy who loved to dismantle toys to find out how and what made them function and then turn around and reassemble them. As he grew older, it was evident that Anthony was mechanically inclined and great with his hands and his hobby was a true passion. It was around this same time that he also gained a love for fast cars, particularly Porsches, and a passion for music and DJ'ing. In 1999, Anthony finished his high school career at Crenshaw High School. Soon after he decided to pursue a career as an automotive technician enrolling in and completing Los Angeles Trade Technical College's program.

He began DJ'ing various parties and events around the country. During this time period he was known as "DJ DEZNO". Anthony was loved and adored by his family and friends. He was kind, compassionate, and very reliable; going above and beyond to help whomever and whenever he could; except if you were a "weirdo" - lol. Yes, he had an amazing sense of humor. He was a dedicated father to his children, and he honored those who were closest to him. In February 2017 Anthony was diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma, an aggressive form of kidney cancer. Although his body was wracked with unbearable pain, his faith in God never wavered. He was always cheerful, persistent in prayer, and he maintained a positive attitude.

  1. A beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God, leaving loneliness and sadness.My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. I will surely miss the presence of a truly lovable and kind person.

  2. I had the pleasure of being a neighbor with Anthony. Anthony was and is a sweetheart, friendly helpful neighbor. He fixed Tenaya’s car on occasion. Always smiling and was a very hard worker working all day long giving time to comfortable local conversation with us. I play music and sports; If there was anyone that would be my first round draft pick on my team or my musical band, It would be Anthony. We cried, we will think about how the tears will think about his memory forever on Victoria Avenue with love…
