The Obit For Robert Nuxhall

Joe Nuxhall's Brother Dies

FROM: The Cincinnati Enquirer - 4/27/2008

Robert Nuxhall, younger brother of the late Cincinnati Reds pitcher and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall, died Friday in Hamilton. He was 75.

His cause of death is unknown. Kim Nuxhall, Joe's son, said his uncle's health has been failing. "He hasn't been himself for quite some time."

Mr. Nuxhall played baseball while serving in the armed forces and for a Reds minor league team in the mid-1950s. He became an upholsterer, padding mostly restaurant seats and bar tops at local businesses.

"If you went to a bar in Hamilton and it had padding, he was probably responsible," Kim Nuxhall said.

Funeral information is not available.
