In Loving Memory

Nash Jr., Harold E.   

October 31, 1941 - January 11, 2024

Survived by his wife of 63 years, Mary Margaret (née Whitaker), daughter Patricia (Ben) Witte, son Brian (Maria) Nash, grandchildren Nicholas (Stacy Levichev) Cady, Joseph (Olivia) Cady, Emma (Hunt) Lucas, Luke Nash, and Benjamin Witte, great granddaughters Mary Margaret Lucas and Annabel Irina Cady, sisters Kay Finnegan and Barb (David) Thompson. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold E. Nash and Helen (née Melber) Nash. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.

   Harold, “Poppy” was born and raised in South St.Louis and attended Roosevelt High School where he met the love of his life, “Margie”. They raised their family in Glendale, enjoying all the blessings this community provided. For the past 29 years, they’ve called Grantwood Village their home.

   He worked as an electrician for Anheuser-Busch, a proud member of  IBEW Local 1. When not at work, Poppy enjoyed spending time in his yard. He loved creating, crafting and fixing, and  he enjoyed a variety of hobbies over the years. His greatest joy was his family with whom he shared his time, wisdom, humor and love. Poppy was dearly beloved. 

Services: Private. Kutis Funeral Home.

 In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Saint Vincent DePaul Society would be appreciated.

  1. So sorry to learn of Harold’s death. He was in Barbara and my
    wedding in 1962. We were great friends at RHS and thereafter.
    I remember the day he broke his nose during a soccer game at Fairgrounds Park while playing for the Spartans A C. I took
    him to the hospital where the doctor straightened his nose with a potato masher. Best wishes to Margie and family.

  2. Nash Family, please accept my condolences. I have nothing but fond memories of Harold. His years of dedicated baseball coaching inspired the guys at MQP. He was always the coolest dad.
    Hang in there, Rick

  3. Dear Marge and Family,

    I was so sorry to hear of Harold’s death. Hopefully it was peaceful and pain free.
    I pray that many years of happy memories and the love and prayers of your family and friends will be a comfort to all of you. One of those memories was the fun Friday nights spent watching our sons on the football field. Those were great times at SLUH. Harold and Ed were our sons best fans. Wishing you peace during these difficult times.


  4. The Kaminski family wishes to extend our deepest sympathy to Margie and the Nash family. Neighbors of the Nash’s for many years on Joanna Ave we enjoyed watching the two families grow up together. It was a great neighborhood. We had some “block parties”. We all wish Harold eternal happiness and he is in our prayers.

  5. The Gianino family is heartbroken at the loss of our dear friend. We lived next-door to Harold for more than 40 years and will miss him forever.. There are so many memories to share, and we pray that he is at eternal peace. God bless you, dear friend.

  6. Rest in peace Harold, catcher on my Spartans baseball team the summer of 1958. You had a long good life with Margie, family and friends. Nice legacy.

  7. I was saddened to hear of Harold’s passing. He was my first crush at Fanning Grade School. My sympathy goes out to Margie and family.

  8. My sympathy, love, and prayers to you, Patti. He sounds like such a good man – I’m not surprised! May he rest in peace.

  9. Sorry to the Nash family, I did not know of Harold’s passing until today. He was a kind and good man to work with at AB. My sympathies to Mary Margrarte and your family.

  10. Dear Nash Family
    We know your Dad from Grantwood Village. We are dog walkers and enjoyed meeting Harold and Otis on our many walks. We just heard of Harold’s passing. He is missed in Grantwood. May you all find peace and joy.

    Mary Beth and Barb Hummel and Rosie Mae
