Obituary

Ralph Eugene Nash, 68, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019.

Ralph was born on Sept. 16, 1951 in General Hospital in Kansas City, MO, the youngest child of William Lewis Nash and Edna Louise Armstrong Nash. He attended Northeast High School, and on Oct. 28, 1977, he married Anne Marie Williams.

Ralph had three jobs in his entire life: Inner City Grocery Store, Container Packaging, and ultimately Bennett Packaging, where he worked as a forklift driver. He worked diligently for them for the last 28 years until his health declined, creating so many friendships throughout the years.

He was an avid trout-fisherman, and he and his family frequently took road trips to Bennett Springs and Eureka Springs to see what was biting, and they’d often stop by Roach, MO to visit family on their way home. He cared so deeply for his family, who affectionately knew him as “Pa.” He loved being surrounded by his grandkids and great-grandkids, and he was always happy to help his family and his friends with whatever they needed. Ralph was the very proud owner of a 1979 Ford truck - it transported him to his teenage years again. The fact that it did not have any modern comforts did not make one difference to him. His face lit up when he sat behind the wheel and revved the engine, or climbed under the hood to repair a part.

Ralph is survived by his wife of 42 years, Anne; daughter, Hope Nash; daughter, Malia Williams; 11 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; 5 siblings, Nancy, Ruth, Irene, Doris, and Bill; and many extended family and dear friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Edna Louise, and 3 siblings, George, Carol, and Nadine.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 18, from 6-8pm, with memorial service on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 10:00am, both at Carson-Speaks Chapel, 1501 W. Lexington Ave. in Independence.
