Somerset Undertaking Co. and Crematory - Somerset Obituary

James Elbert Nash, age 73, retired Physician’s Assistant, of Mineral Wells, Texas passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 2, 202 at the Russell County Hospital in Russell Springs, Kentucky.

He was born on June 27, 1947 in Longview, Texas, son of the late Thomas Elbert Nash, and Sterline Crowder Nash. James graduated from Hurst High School in Texas and went on to obtain his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. He was of the Christian Faith and a member of the Church of Christ. James enjoyed reading, gardening and traveling, but perhaps, his greatest enjoyment was being a philosopher and sharing his wealth of knowledge with others. He was a kind and generous man and will be missed by those who knew and loved him.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, three daughters; Jessica Nash (Michael Paulk) of Fleming Island, Florida, April Nash of Bismarck, North Dakota, and Staci Nash of Arlington, Texas, four grandchildren and two sisters; Sharon (John) Finn of Witt, Texas and Charlotte Pollock of Prosper, Texas as well as a host of other relatives and friends.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the United Way of South Central Kentucky, P. O Box 861, Somerset, Kentucky 42502

Not sure what to say?

I have missed him, even before his death. He was my best friend, my confidant. We laughed so many times together. He always made my heart and mind better. I will always miss you my friend.
My sincerest condolences to his family.

Jim was such a pleasure to know. He was a wonderful doctor but a friend. Thank you for letting us get to know such a gentle man that brought so much joy to this world

I am so sorry for the families loss. Jim was an important part of my life. He become part of our family in Medicine Bow, Wyoming. When he moved to King CIty, Missouri, I was able to reconnect with him. He has been missed since he left for Kentucky. I am the middle daughter of Jack and Trudy Dierenfeldt. My deepest sympathy to all of you. I will cherish the memories I have.
