Anthony Quinton Nottingham was a certified public accountant.
Nottingham died Sept. 13, 2012. He was 53.
He was born April 29, 1959, to Junius and Dorothy Nottingham. He received his education in the Philadelphia school district, graduating from Central High School in 1977. He then attended Drexel University, where he graduated with honors in 1982.
Nottingham was employed at the accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand for 15 years where he worked his way up to the position of tax manager. He obtained his license as a certified public accountant in October 1985. After a brief stint in the public sector, he returned to public accounting, gaining employment at John Milligan and Associates in the position of director of taxation. He held this position until late 2006, when his health no longer permitted him to work.
He was an active member of Holy Temple Church of God in Christ throughout his life. He participated in the cultural program as a youth and was involved in the Men’s Fellowship and the Men’s Choir of Holy Temple Church. In 1998, he was appointed to the position of deacon by the late Bishop Ozro T. Jones Jr. He served in this position faithfully until he was no longer able to handle the duties of the position.
On July 29, 2006, he married Antoinette “Toni” Bailey, who was constantly by his side and provided around the clock care for him. Theirs was a mutually devoted and loving union and she was with him up until he died.
Nottingham was very active in Junior Achievement and was available to help anyone in need of a helping hand. He was an avid sports fan and watched the Philadelphia Eagles and 76ers faithfully.
“Tony had an unusual, dry sense of humor and a sarcastic wit. But along with that, he had a heart of gold,” his family said.
“He was a loving husband, a devoted son, an outstanding brother and a trustworthy friend. He touched more lives than he could ever realize and we are all better people for having him in our lives.”
In addition to his wife and father, Nottingham is survived by his mother-in-law, Sylvia Lone; brothers, Junius Jr. and Mark; sister, Kimberly Floyd; brothers-in-law, Linwood Floyd and Thaddeus H. Bailey Jr.; sisters-in-law, Sharon and Carolynn; five aunts; three uncles; seven nephews; four nieces; and other relatives and friends.
Services will be held September 21 at Holy Temple Church of God in Christ, 60th and Callowhill streets. Viewing will be held at 9 a.m. Services will follow at 10:30 a.m.
Clarence Johnson Jr. Funeral Home handled the arrangements.
