Anthony Drohan, beloved father, brother, and son passed away on February 13th, 2020. He was born in San Francisco on December 26th 1973. He is preceded in death by his mentor and grandfather Paul Carlomagno and grandmother Lucretia Carlomagno. He is survived by his mother Lynn Carlomagno-Duggan (Sonoma) and his father John Drohan (Novato), his two children, Noah Drohan and Elias Drohan, Rachel Jenkins (mother of his two boys), his sisters Gina Drohan (Matthew Wilson) (Novato), Rachelle Methner (Scott Methner)(Sonoma) and his much loved nephews Levi Smith, John Methner and Benjamin Methner. He was fiercely loved by his family and returned that love in his many gifts.
Anthony graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Alaska, receiving degrees in both land management and forestry conservation. He was a certified arborist and enjoyed his time working in Washington in land and forest management. He was a member and instructor for NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School). Anthony was a gifted healer, massage therapist, and personal trainer who touched many lives. He was an enthusiastic traveler and visited may places such as Thailand (where he started a kayak school), New Zealand, Australia, Nepal, Alaska, Mexico and beyond. He loved the mountains and the ocean and was equally at peace in both places, but especially on our family property on Molokai, HI. He was a gifted writer and shared his love for nature though his writing. He was a voracious reader and always passing down his knowledge gained through his reading and studies to his sons and family. He was a certified Merchant Marine Captain and sailed his vessel The Intrepid with great joy with friends and family. He loved to swim, paddleboard, scuba dive, work out and climb to mountain tops with his sons. Family time was what was most important to him in life and family trips were talked about among his family for years, most planned by Anthony.
With all the above, Anthony’s greatest achievements and most important in his life were his two sons. He was proud of his sons so intensely that he often commented that “all of his dreams have come true” to see them become such amazing young men.
The family will be celebrating his life privately at the ocean.
