Memories Timeline


  1. My sympathy to the Klenske family and Wally and Glennda Murphy as you grieve the passing of Tony. As New Hampton High School students we shared many times of laughter and chatting back then. Tony always seemed to need a ride to some place and golfing was his thing! God bless Tony.

  2. Condolences to Tony’s family and friends. I have fond memories of knowing Tony growing up in NH, on and off the golf course. I admired his easy going nature and his sweet golf swing from the left side. Got reacquainted at the University of Iowa. And last played golf with Tony in 2005. Congrats to Tony on a stellar career. I was glad that we got to talk over the phone when he relocated to NH earlier this year. God bless Tony and Lynda and may they and may they rest in peace.

  3. They were both great friends of me and my wife Donna. Tony and I were friends for over 60 years since the University of Iowa. I am sorry for your loss and I miss them often.
