With heavy hearts, we announce the death of Dr. Anthony “Tony” Forsythe Titus, who passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 3, 2020, at 61.

A beloved father and immensely dedicated emergency room physician, Tony’s adventure began on Dec. 3, 1958, in Tacoma, Washington, where he was born to Frank and Addie Price Titus. Tony’s indomitable spirit and infinite love remain with us and are reflected in our every smile and every act of kindness. Thank you to our dad, brother, partner and friend for a lifetime of lessons that ended too soon.

Tony is survived by the mother of his children, Lisa White; his sons, Nicholas, Graham and Gabriel; his three older brothers, Frank II, Timothy (Mary) and Jonathan (Christa); and his younger sister, Lisa. He was a proud and supportive uncle to eight nieces and nephews, Frank III, Melissa, Ashley, Lauren, Trevor, Alexys, Ian and Alex. He leaves behind trusted friends, including Dr. Ben Buchanan, treasured colleagues and numerous patients whose lives he helped with his expertise, compassion and dedication.

Tony was preceded by his father and mother.
