Jeffrey Lee “Trapper” Nash, 64, passed away after a courageous, five-year battle with cancer on July 24, 2017, surrounded by loved ones in Crandon.
Jeff is survived by his loving wife Dawn Nash of Crandon; loving sons Robert Nash of Saukville and Michael Nash of New London; along with the Wendt family and other close family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents Marvin and Mary Nash of Crandon.
Jeff spent as much time as he could outdoors — landscaping, hunting, fishing and cruising White Eye Lake on his pontoon boat. He loved to putter around in his gardens and had very specific standards for his lawn. As a family, the Nashes traveled for the better part of 10 years all over the country for off-road races.
Jeffrey was born on April 13, 1953, in Port Washington to Marvin and Mary (Hill) Nash.
He graduated from Port Washington High School, and was married to Dawn on Aug. 20, 1982. He worked in the trucking industry for many years. Jeff and Dawn lived in Grafton until they retired to Crandon in 2015.
No service is planned for Jeffrey, but his family will celebrate his life with a private memorial and honor his life daily.
Weber Hill Funeral Home in Crandon was in charge of arrangements, and questions can be directed to the funeral home.
Memorial donations sent to Dawn will be directed to Ozaukee County 4-H.
Jeffrey will be dearly missed by everyone who loves him, and his family is relieved that he is no longer suffering.
