Marvin T. Nash, 72, Martinsville, passed away at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, June 25, 2018 at his home.
He was born on Sunday, May 19, 1946 in Martinsville, Indiana, to the late Conrad and Helen (Ferguson) Nash.
Marvin was a 1964 graduate of Martinsville High School. He worked for Stewart-Warner for a short period of time and then went to work at the Jimmy Nash City Park in Martinsville. He worked there for 42 years and retired as the park superintendent in April 2014. To Marvin the City Park was more than a job, it was home. He had a soft spot for the children who needed a little extra money to go swimming or needed to borrow a basketball. The door was always open to sled riders or those in need of anything.
Marvin enjoyed hunting, gardening, tennis, NASCAR, and other spectator sports. He was actively involved in his children and grandchildren’s activities, including being the head coach of his son’s intramural basketball team. Marvin was a “jack of all trades” and dabbled in farming, brick laying, drywalling, construction, and mechanics. He loved spending time with family and friends, a good game of euchre, and a drive in the country (the loop). Marvin and Sandy enjoyed many miles of adventurous travels over the years. Yellowstone National Park was one of his favorite trips.
Survivors are his wife, Sandra K. “Sandy” (Hill) Nash, whom he married on February 28, 1965; son, Kevin T. Nash of Martinsville; daughter, Lora L. (Nash) Hurlbert and husband Keith “Sarge” of Martinsville; siblings, Ralph Stiles of Martinsville, Ronnie Stiles of Terre Haute and Phyllis Dewey of Martinsville; grandchildren, Bobbi, Cole and Cindy.
Marvin was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, James Edward Nash.
