Popular WTMA 1960s and 1970s air personality Bob "Booby" Nash passed away on Wednesday, January 17, 2017 after a short illness.

While he spent most of his Charleston radio career at WTMA, Booby also worked for WKTM and WCSC.

After leaving WCSC in 1986, he entered into full-time ministry including many years pastoring a church on James Island.

We are fortunate to have several of Booby's WTMA airchecks online, as well as a 1991 appearance on WTMA's Dan Moon show and a three-part audio interview conducted by John Quincy in 2005.

Booby Nash will be missed by many.

OBITUARY

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.

Arrangements entrusted to McALISTER-SMITH FUNERAL HOME, JAMES ISLAND CHAPEL, 347 Folly Road, Charleston, SC 29412, Phone: 843-614-8494.
