Condolences

Condolence From: Maureen France
Condolence: As a volunteer, I had the pleasure of knowing Tony through the Reds HOF. On a slow day at Charlie's Corner, he would stop by to chat. A wonderful guy with a great sense of humor and a greater love of baseball, especially the Reds.

He will be missed by the Hall of Fame Family and forever an important member.

Deepest sympathy

Condolence From: Herb Brass
Condolence: I was sorry to hear of Tony's passing. A huge loss to both his families -- his personal family, and friend, as well as his friends and coworkers at the Hall of Fame and Museum. I recall his being direct, often with a sense of humor. I also remember him selling merch at the outdoor tables during a game. He was able to negotiate with people and help make a sale in a congenial way.

Condolence: Dearest Holly,
I didn't know Tony a lot, very little I should say.
I didn't know his favorite color, his many interesting ways.
I didn't know his favorite food, nor his favorite time of year.
I didn't know you, his folks, or others he held dear.

Still and all, I knew Tony a Little, knew him well enough to now say that to know someone like Tony -- just a Little -- was Lot in every way.

Sincerely,
PhyllisAnn Napier

Condolence: I’m so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I always enjoyed his company while working the memorabilia table at GABP, and I especially appreciated everything that he did to make me feel welcome at the Reds Hall of Fame from day-one.

He was a straight-shooter -- one of the best -- and will be sorely missed. Words cannot adequately express my sincere respect that I have for him. Gonna miss you Tony. RIP.

Condolence: I am very sorry to hear of Tony's passing and send sincere condolences to Holly and the family. Tony and I were colleagues at Ursuline Academy for many years. He had a knack for knowing the latest news, and I enjoyed discussing a variety of topics with him. We laughed a lot, which doesn't happen often enough in life. May Tony Rest In Peace after a life well lived.

Condolence From: Dave Fraley
Condolence: Hammer was a unique individual. His knowledge was unmatched with baseball history and memorabilia. He and I always love to kid each other when My wife and I came down to games when he worked at the memorabilia booth. He could go anywhere in that stadium and no one would bother him, badge or not. I remember him telling me Ken Griffey Jr.'s mom came to him in the HOF and told him she could not get down on the field because she didn't have a pass. He then proceeded to walk her from the HOF down to the field and put her in her seat in time for the ceremony to start. He certainly leaves a void in the Reds HOF. There will only be one "Hammer". RIP Tony.

Condolence From: Greg Rhodes
Condolence: Holly: I am so sorry to hear of Tony's passing.

He was such an important part of the Reds Hall of Fame all these years. I am so pleased I got to know him, and thankful he was part of our Hall of Fame family. He was obviously a great fan of the Reds, and especially Pete. I always knew whenever Pete was in town. Tony had an extra sparkle in his eye.

And of course he gave Pete credit for everything. Why is Joey Votto hitting so well? Must have talked to Pete. How about this Reds winning streak. Pete must've talked to them. We gotta get more people to come to the Reds Hall of Fame. Do a Pete exhibit.

And Pete loved him back. Pete must know a million fans, but he knew Tony was something special. For some event, Pete's giving credit to the guys at the Hall of Fame and he mentioned Tony first!

And Tony loved the Hall of Fame. Nobody represented the Hall better than Tony. These past few years, when I went to Reds games, I see him at the table outside, and I'd give him a hard time about something, and he'd give it right back. Nobody worked with more enthusiasm, no matter what the job. Heck, Tony invented jobs. I remember once after we had only been open a short while, I saw Tony with a broom or a mop. Tony, what are you doing? Going to clean up a mess. Tony, we have the Reds cleaning service. They'll take care of it. Nah, they won't do it right. I'll handle it. And off he went, taking care of his Hall of Fame.

Tony, we'll miss you. You were one of a kind.
