FC Charlotte honors the life of Anton Walkes at Bank of America Stadium.

CHARLOTTE, NC — Hundreds gathered at Bank of America Stadium on Tuesday to honor and celebrate the life of Anton Wax.

The FC Charlotte defender died in a boating accident last week, aged just 25.

The players honored their fallen teammate by wearing his number five jersey.

FC Charlotte forward Andre Shiniaszycki says Anton wasn’t just an incredible teammate. He was an amazing person and an even better friend.

“Looking at all the pictures I see of him. What impresses me the most is the brilliance of his eyes.” An emotional Shinyashiki held back tears as he addressed the crowd, “This man had the most exalted eyes I’ve ever seen in my life. Full of joy. Full of happiness. Full of life. People say that the eyes are the window to the soul. And I can’t think of anyone with a more beautiful soul than Anton.”
