CHARLOTTE, NC — A disabled veteran that was killed on October 10th in a house fire will be laid to rest on October 19th. The funeral will be held at the Clark Funeral Home in Kannapolis, NC. Visitation will begin at 11:30AM, followed by the home going service at 12PM.

A house fire on Eastbrook Road in Charlotte Monday night claimed the life of a disabled veteran on October 10th. Todd Anthony was a proud Marine who suffered from Parkinson’s Disease and was confined to a wheelchair. His brothers say he died at the top of the stairs because he couldn’t walk.

Charlotte Fire responded to the home just before midnight on Monday.  Firefighters say 8 people were inside the home at the time.  Three of them were taken to the hospital including Todd Anthony’s nephew, who tried to save him but was overcome with smoke.

Todd Anthony is survived by two daughters.  A GoFundMe has been set up to help family recover from their loss.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says this is currently a death investigation and arson has not been ruled out at this time.
