Thomas D. Nash ’72
Thomas Dana Nash, Sr, 68, died June 12, 2018 at home with his family by his side.
Born in the seaside town of Millbridge, Maine in 1949, Tommy’s life was always near the water. He graduated from Jonesport High School in 1968 and then entered Maine Maritime Academy to become a Merchant Marine. One of his proudest accomplishments was graduating Maine Maritime near the top of his class.
As a Merchant Marine, Tommy alternated between months on the ships and months at home. Nothing made him happier than the times he spent with his family on the long shore leaves. While he was generally quiet, everyone loved to hear him when he did speak up. He had a great sense of humor and could draw out belly laughs from everyone in the room.
Tommy is survived by his wife, Millie Nash; his daughter Tonya (Nash) Kassa; his sisters, Marie Butera, Cynthia Pike, Debbie Leschke, Cathy Self, Bonnie Jo Correll, Darlene Delgado; and his brother, Clint Springer. He was preceeded in death by his birth parents Clara and Shirlen Nash; his foster parents Arletta and Carol Crowley; and his son Thomas Dana Nash, Jr.
