Pearsall, Texas

Anthony Frank Anizan was born November 12, 1938 in Texas City, Texas to Frank & Evelyn Anizan. Anthony was known to many as "Buzzy". This was a nickname his older sister gave him when he was born because she could not say "brother". In 1947 when he was in the second grade he survived the Texas City Blast. Buzzy graduated from Texas City High School and then joined the Navy. He married Barbara Ann Smith of Sabinal on March 21, 1959. Upon his discharge from the Navy, Buzzy and Barbara moved to Pearsall to start a new job at the Medina Electric Power Plant. He served as a reserve deputy for Frio County. He was also active in the First Baptist Church in Pearsall where among other things he served as a deacon. He worked for the plant for 44 years and he retired in 2006. Buzzy passed away at home on Thursday, February 16, 2023 at the age of 84 after a lengthy illness. He was preceded in death by his parents; step-mother, Pauline Anizan; step-father, Charles McFarland. Buzzy is survived by his loving wife, Barbara Anizan; daughter, Annette Dunn (Stephen); son, Glenn Anizan (Kim); daughter, Kathy Slind (Brian); son, Frank Anizan (Phyllis); 5 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren; brother, Michael McFarland; sisters, Jeanette Blount and Jerry Sue Massa.
