Not sure what to say?

Yes, Dr. Nash was truly a "Renaissance Man". I was too young at the time I had my spinal fusion surgery to realize or appreciate what a great gift I had been given. Dr. Nash was blessed with his surgical skills, and paid it forward by blessing us, his patients, with the gift of health and healing. Thank you, Dr. Nash, on behalf of all your patients.

Dr. Nash was such a good guy. I was so fortunate to have had a chance to work with him and to get to know him when he served on the Brittingham Memorial Library Board. I looked forward to my Tuesday meetings with him - he had so many ideas and was so enthusiastic and supportive. My condolences to his family. Dr. Nash will always be remembered.

Deb, I'm sorry to read this, and wish I lived near enough to be useful. Please know my thoughts are with you, with love, Barbara

I was the first baby that Dr. Nash did scoliosis surgery on. I was 15 months old when he did my first of seven surgeries that I have had in my life so far and I'm 42 years old now. I was also the first patient to throw a water balloon on him at a spine picnic when I was little. He was the only doctor that I was never afraid and that I couldn't wait to go and see him. I can say that I loved my back doctor as we called him when I was little. When my mom told me today about Dr. Nash passing...

A life well lived and generously shared with classmates, colleagues,devoted friends and his wonderful family. We send you all our thoughts and love. Allan and Nancy Lerner

During my 15 + years as a faculty member at Case Western Reserve (1978-1993)I recall many pleasant interactions with Les. He was one of a number of oustanding Orthopedists who was a faculty member in Charles Herndon's stellar department. Les was a true gentleman with a keen sense of humor and I admired him greatly. My sincere condolences to the family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Dr. Clyde Nash. My dad Max Hickle was a patient of his many years ago and Dr. Nash hired my dad to fix a problem on his home on Eaton and Fairmount.
Dr. Nash was a very special gentleman. May his soul Rest In Peace.
In faith peace and comfort

My Sincere Sympathy to the family of Dr, Nash
Our family was so blessed when be found Dr. Nash to care for our Son who had a severe case of Scoliosis. I will be forever grateful for his kindness and expertise to diagnose and care for David when hope for him to walk was beginning to darken everyday of my life.
Heaven just got another Dr. Angel.
Sincerely,
Helen Arko Haley

Our condolences to the entire Nash Family.
Dr Nash (Les) was one of the kindest doctors of our time. He was a pioneer in orthopedic medicine in Northeast Ohio and he always had time for people and patients (including my broken arm in the fourth grade). Outside of the operating room and medical rooms, he carried the same warm personality in public. He had time for teaching young kids, always showing interest in their ideas and thoughts. He will be greatly missed, such a great man!
