“Sherringa was in Kodiak for the weekend and told me about Joe's recent passing. I have such fond memories of Joe's time in Kodiak. He was so much fun, and had such talent. He truly livened things up here! I still appreciate decorating ideas around my home suggested by Joe during that time. He made many friends here during those years. We loved him very much! So hilarious! Time you spent with Joe was always very special. Marya
“What an Amazing designer and beautiful person. You will be surely missed by all. Thank you for spreading your creativity on the world.
“I am so saddened by the loss of such a special guy. Joe was incredibly generous and kind. I'll never forget the fun times we had with him both in NY and LA. Every time I think of Joe I smile. He was just so funny and smart. How sad for the world to have lost him so soon. All my love to the Nye and Morphy families!

There are so many wonderful memories that I carry with me of our times together in NYC, Los Angeles, and here is Sydney... We were hoping for the next visit here last year! I am grateful for your introduction to lovely friends, we all come together now to celebrate you.
Thankfully I had a big hug on Melrose Avenue in May, I will cherish this memory .
“I met Joe some years ago when I had just moved to Los Angeles and took a job in the design industry here and did not know a soul. I met Joe at a party and he took me under his wing making sure I met all the right people. His kindness and generosity were only outdone by his talent.

“I was a client who became a friend, as did almost everyone who ever worked with Joe. Creative, charming, witty.. from his Belgian loafers, to the pocket silks and seersucker suits...style personified. I loved him dearly and will miss him always.
“Joe was my decorator and my friend.
I met Joe in 2004 when I hired him to recreate my house in Jackson, Wyoming. He did a beautiful job. I also hired Joe for the interiors of my new home in Sydney, Australia. He was unable to complete the Sydney project; however, his choice of colors, insights into using the home, furniture selections, etc. will forever make the place very special. The last chair for the house, selected by Joe, was completed on the week of his death and is now...
“I had the honor of working side by side with Joe for so many years....for me, I will never forget the Joe Nye who was above amazingly talented, was so witty and charming and told me stories about his growing up in Nebraska... we just got each other since I'm from Nebraska also, I've truly lost apart of my heart with Joe's passing....I will forever think about Joe each and every day for the rest of my Life!
My blessings go out to each and every one of Joe Nye's family
