Anthony Forsythe Titus, M.D., ’85

The Boonshoft School of Medicine mourns the passing of alumnus Anthony Titus, M.D., who passed away unexpectedly in July of 2020.

Titus was an emergency medicine physician with Wilson Medical Center in Wilson, North Carolina.

Part of a military family, Titus traveled the world. Most of his formative years were spent in Dayton, Ohio. Following high school, Titus earned his undergraduate degree from Purdue University. 

At a young age, Titus demonstrated his tremendous work ethic at Rike’s Department Store in Dayton, stocking shelves. This value of hard work continued as a physician, through the long hours he put in at the clinic and quality of care he provided to his patients. Titus was proof that a great doctor is defined by their personal values, effort and dedication to healing. He won awards for patient care, and often received thank-you notes from patients, which he carried with him throughout the day as a reminder of the impact and importance of his work.

Titus is survived by his wife Lisa, and three sons, Nicholas, Graham and Gabriel.
