Joseph Thomas Nason

Notice Condolences

NASON , Joseph Thomas In peace and with grace, Joseph Thomas Nason , beloved husband, father, and grandfather was taken home by God on Sunday, October 24th after a short battle with cancer. Joe dedicated his life to his wife, family, and friends. Generous with his time, attention, and affection, his laughter and love have touched the lives of innumerable others. The third of nine children, Joe was born in Baltimore, MD on July 25, 1938, the son of Charles P. and Anna E. (Jory) Nason who have preceded him to heaven. Throughout his life, he sought to educate himself in as many disciplines as possible. An avid reader, woodworker, sailor, and handyman, Joe found pleasure in all things big and small. He cherished his family and spent his time being with and doing for them. He is survived by his beloved wife and soul mate, Mary D. (Snyder) Nason; his son Joseph T. Nason, Jr., and grandsons Joseph A. Nason and Evan C. Nason; his daughter and son-in-law, Mary A. (Nason) and Andrew J. Lokuta, and grandchildren Benjamin J. and Victoria G. Lokuta. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters, and their spouses: Charles E. and Ann L. Nason, Ann (Nason) and Robert W. McMahon, Francis W. and Catherine Nason, James P. Nason, Mary C. (Nason) and John T. Banister, Jeannette D. (Nason) and Walter J. Urbanski, John P. Nason, and Patrick E. Nason, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. We are all richer for having shared time with him. Always seeking to enhance education and better the world around him, Joe has given his body to the Maryland State Anatomy Board. His body will be used for the education of generations of students to come.
