It is with extreme sadness that the family of Hamid Reza (Tony) Nassabeh announces his sudden passing, on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, at the age of 56. Hamid was born in Shiraz, Iran on May 9, 1962. He is the son of Nasrin (Shapourian) and Mohammad Nassabeh of Shiraz.

Tony was a bright light in an often dark world. I met him through my work with The West Virginia Center for Professional Development events that were held at the Marriott. Tony was the epitome of what great customer service should be, and WVCPD could always count on him for the best rates and support during our events. He will be truly missed. Such a kind, gentle and giving person who spoiled us and increased my waistline by bringing goodies to our office. :)
Thinking of his family and friends during this very difficult time!!

I truly felt that I lost a family member when I received the call of Toney’s passing. I no longer thought about the conference that I was doing, but the friend through the Marriott that I had lost. He will truly be lovingly missed by me and the hundreds of lives he has touched with his gentle advice and guidance. Condolences to his entire family.

Tony Nassabeh will always be remembered in my mind as a very kind, soft spoken strong gentleman whom seem to care more about those around him then himself.

A Wonderful father whom loved his daughters and Lisa more than anything on this planet. Tony you will be missed by everyone and anyone whom ever met you.

I am so thankful that my son Justin met Sydney which provided our family a path of friendship to Tony and his family.

Knowing Tony not only helps me think about how I present myself and what I do each day moving forward, but more important provides my son a clear prospective as to how precious and short life can be.

Tony, I shall always remember your smile, soft tone and polite manner, this world has lost one of the very few Gentleman of this world.. 😥

My heartfelt sympathies to Tony's family and friends. It was my pleasure to have known Tony from quite a few years ago, with the best memories being of intramural table-tennis. He was quite talented, friendly, and an all-around good fellow.
