RIP Jerry Hamilton (obnoxio)

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share with the Missouri wrestling community that Jerry Hamilton passed away last weekend. Jerry had been battling cancer the past two years.

RIP Obnoxio. 

Jerry will certainly be missed.  He was an incredibly nice guy, always upbeat, and a total goofball.  He was always packing a joke or a tease.  I will remember fondly the many dual meets and tournaments that we sat together and chatted about anything that came to mind.  I even lured him over to be a fan of the "Norfwest Kittens".  I hadn't spoken to him in about 10 years or so.

Also, Jerry's dad who posted here as Father Joe is also gone, as of October 2018.  RIP Padre.  The two men were never far apart at wrestling meets and were always welcoming.  Sad times.

Those guys always made the “gatherings” at State more enjoyable.  The Clown repeatedly screaming “TWO!!!” at the refs at Hooters, and them laughing back, was classic 

The good old days....

Jerry was far too young to be gone.

Jerry was one of a kind. I know he volunteered his time to run a table for our tournament here at Fox on more than one occasion, and I doubt we were the only tournament he did that for. We would chat a couple times a year. I'll miss those chats. 

 

Pardon my language, but Fuck Cancer!

“but”, or “butt”....?

(in keeping with Obnoxio’s brand of humor)

What was the name of the bar everyone met at during the break of Granite City?

Thanks for the heads up Jonathan!!  This makes me sad...he was always very sweet to me (contrary to his 'public' persona) and loved our sport.  He'll definitely be missed.  😞

Those times were a lot of fun. Jerry was one of a kind and brought a lot of little wrestling groups together. 

 

I really hope that Ali Regan makes a World or Olympic team. It would definitely make me think of Obnoxio
