Joe and I worked at Jeffersontown Swim Club for Bob Holloway. In his first job there, before I was hired, he was ribbed by his brothers Harry and Pat calling him "Commode Joe" because he cleaned the dressing rooms. He helped build the new pool and worked many summers thereafter. That pool was razed this past year. That was a shame because he worked so hard in his part of building it. He was a horse of a worker! I lost track of Joe when I joined the Marines and settled in California. I always know that he would become a family man and business owner. He was good guy and very fun to be around. Sorry to hear that he is gone.

Joe Nash the grampster was awesome role model. Even though he was addicted to sugar he was the funniest person ever. I still remember when I was 4 or 5 we all went on a cruise. I remember sitting next to him almost every time we went out to dinner. And then he would keep teasing me about girls. But overall he was the best grandpa ever. We miss you grampster

One of the best summers of my life was working with Joe in the concession stand at J-town Swim Club. Joe was such a happy, fun loving and kind guy who always brought a smile to my face!

My deepest condolences to his family and extended family.
