Robert J. “Bob” “Booby”
Nash, 77, of Charleston and husband of Raetta Nash, passed
away Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
Bob was born on May 30, 1939 in Buffalo, NY to the late Karl
Emerson Nash and Dorothy Evoy Nash. He came to Charleston in
1966 to work at WTMA radio and stayed in the business for
many years. He founded and pastored Living Word Church on
James Island in 1984 and then went into missionary ministry.
As much as he loved making Charleston laugh, radio, his
family and his church, he loved his Jesus most of all and
now he’s in His presence.
The family would like to express a special thank you to the
staff at MUSC.
In addition to his wife of 45 years, survivors include his
daughter, Lisa Nash Toxey; grandson, Tyler Toxey; his
sister, Sandy Mascia and many other family members.
A Celebration of Bob’s Life will be held at 12 Noon on
Saturday, January 21, 2017 at McAlister-Smith Funeral Home,
James Island Chapel.
The family will receive friends 2 hours prior to the service
from 10 AM – 12 PM at the chapel.
