Anthony Fitch

January 15, 1958 ‒ February 07, 2021

Sunbury, Ohio

Anthony “Tony” Fitch, 63 of Sunbury, passed away peacefully, Sunday, February 7, 2021 at the Laurels of Walden Park in Columbus.

Born January 15, 1958 in Portsmouth, Ohio, the son of the late John & Carolyn (Bowling) Fitch. Tony was a member of the Vineyard Christian Church in Sunbury. He was also a volunteer for “friends to share” which is a free store. He was very involved in the community, playing softball for the church, taking the local children to the park, and on Easter Egg hunts.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and wife Patsy Fitch-Heldon in 2000.
Left to cherish his memory are his significant other of 20 years Carolyn Ham; sister Sherry Fitch; brother Johnny Carpenter; step-children Jacob (Jessica) Ham; step-grandchildren Autumn & Ayden Ham; K-9 companion UK.
Tony loved music, whether he was playing the drums or singing. He also loved all sports, especially Softball, basketball and football.  His proudest achievement in life was his sobriety, getting and staying sober  for over 13 years, never relapsing once. His family and those close to him will remember him as the eccentric, stubborn, and loving person that he was.
It was Tony’s wish to be cremated, private services will be held at a later date.

  • Just happened to stumble on his obituary, I am so shocked. Tony stopped by my store when Odis and I had our apparel shop on the square. We took him to a concert years ago…Trace Adkins, James Otto and Alan Jackson, we had so much fun.
    Carolyn, I am so sorry for your loss…
    I know he was very fond of you and the grandkids .
    Peace Out Tony baloney, tell Odis I love him.

  • Tony came to my office many mornings over the years, tape recorder in hand, playing
    voice-over Country tapes he’d created in the garage at his home. He worked hard on getting those to sound just as he’d heard by Nashville artists, and I enjoyed working with him on his projects. He told me often of his trips to Loretta Lynn’s home, to visit her family’s Kentucky Holler, and meeting with her brother, Herman, there. I’m sure Tony’s soul has found a place on their hilltop.
