Anthony Congo, the first graduate of AARC died this month. He was a great guy and had a terrible battle with mental illness and hardcore drug use.

I am very sorry to hear that, my condolences to his loved ones, sincerely.
How old was he? Are there anymore details of his life you would care to share? I mean this guy was a person , right? What did Anthony enjoy doing in his spare time. This guy is a person. Let's talk about the person in him.
I really would like to know more, please.
Thanks,
Deepest regrets,
-DP

I suspect that is a typo for his date of death as noted below. It looks like they mixed it up with his birthday...

          I am so sorry. To the family my sincere condolences. It is horriable that those responsible recieve no punishment for the number of deaths they have caused. However, we as survivors will not forget one. NOT ONE. Let us be there each day for each other so that no one else has to die. let us commit to those truly responsible come to justice.
          May God comfort your family in this time of severe grief and know that we all are thinking of you all.

          It's very sad. It sounds like he's had some tough times in the past year. I came across a number of bulletins from the Living Stones Church, starting from at least as far back as November 2009, which note his name in a small paragraph headed by "Please Pray For Healing For:" in the "Special Announcements And Prayer Requests" section...

          Here's a Facebook page dedicated to him:
