To Ashley, Stacy, and Gina,
I'm very sorry to hear of your father's passing, as well as your mother. They were always very gracious and nice to me when I was involved in your family. They always made me feel welcome. Needless to say, I was a bit intimidated when I first met Mr. Nitz. As you know, I always addressed him as Mr. Nitz, to me it was more than just a form of respect. I really admired your dad. He was a man who commanded respect but also respected me. I was always...

I just learned of Owen's passing. My deepest condolences to the family. To say he lived a Super-Fantastic (I can hear him say it) life is quite an understatement. I benefitted greatly from his counsel and mentoring. He is deeply missed.

I worked with Owen for many years at the UNLV Foundation in his role as Trustee of the Stocker Trust. He was strong willed but always had the best interests of the students and university at heart and was definitely a fun loving man! I will definitely miss him.

He was a high impact gentleman and a natural born leader. He always had a big voice and great sense of humor.
