Pischke, Anthony Proof.jpg

Anthony was born January 15, 1981 in Webster, South Dakota. He moved in second grade to Bridgewater, SD where his parents were both teachers in the Bridgewater School District.

In his sophomore year he joined Emery High School and graduated from there in 1999. His special interests were one act plays, being Casey Cash on a KORN radio station out of Mitchell, playing football, and being active in AWANA. Anthony was crowned homecoming king as well as being picked for first team all-conference football as a tight end. Anthony had a smile for everyone, with a twinkle in his eye, and a joke that followed soon behind.

The next several years he completed one semester at DWU concentrating on creative writing and had several small jobs before he traveled the country for 10 years being a sportscast promoter. This entailed lining up sporting events, rebuilding national figures’ reputations and organizing speaking events. Anthony was living in Houston, Texas at this time.

After his health began to fail, he spent the next ten years of his life in North Carolina and Spokane, Washington where he built websites for companies and did ghostwriting for clients. Anthony still loved his football, but cooking was his favorite pastime.

Anthony is survived by his father and mother, Michael and Christie Pischke, two brothers Jeremy (Jenny) Pischke, Hartford, SD; and Samuel Pischke, Bridgewater, SD; three nephews. and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is also survived by his daughter Kaily Rector, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
