Anthony Overbee

Anthony Joseph Overbee, 13, passed away at 4:25 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022, at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., with his family by his side after a short battle with COVID.
He was born on Feb. 5, 2009, in Toledo, to Tyler J. and Lucinda J. (Foltz) Overbee. He and his identical twin brother, Owen, had a lengthy stay in the NICU and were “million dollar miracle babies.” They were inseparable and the best of friends.
He attended pre-school at Angeline School in Upper Sandusky. He was a previous student at Mohawk Elementary School and was currently attending Palatka Junior/Senior High. Anthony had an infectious smile that warmed one’s heart from the moment you met him and loved to surprise you with hugs.
Like most kids his age, Anthony was a gamer. He spent a lot of long nights playing his Xbox with Fortnite being his favorite game. He loved creating pencil drawings with Owen and he had a great love for animals, especially cats. Anthony was a bit of a cat whisperer who could gain the trust and love of any stray.
Anthony will be sadly missed by his parents; siblings, Jameson, Kansas, Owen and Tayler Overbee; maternal grandparents, David and Terri Foltz of Palatka, Fla.; paternal grandmother, Vicki Overbee and paternal great-grandmother, Rosie Boyce, both of Carey; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceding him in death were his paternal grandfather, Jimmy Overbee; paternal great-grandparents, Howard Boyce, Isaac and Betty Overbee; and maternal great-grandparents, Cynthia (John) Henderson, William Foltz, Billy Bray and Beverly Roberts.
A gathering of family and friends will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey. Anthony’s service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home with Jesse Etter officiating.
Anthony had a great love for all animals so the family is asking for donations to be made to local humane societies in his honor and sent to Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey.
