Jeffery Lynn "Jeff" Nash

December 7, 1951 — May 22, 2020

Jeffery Lynn “Jeff” Nash, 68 years old, a lifelong resident of Sioux City, IA, passed away at MercyOne Medical Center of complications due to cancer.

A visitation will be 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm Tuesday, May 26, 2020, at Christy-Smith Funeral Homes, Morningside Chapel, 1801 Morningside Ave. A private family graveside service will be held at Lincoln Township Cemetery at a later date.

Jeff was the third son born to Alvin C. and Evelyn E. P. (Kuehl) Nash. He attended McKinley Elementary, East Junior High School, and East High School, graduating with the class of 1970.

Jeff and Loretta Gedwillo were united in marriage at Grace United Methodist Church in Sioux City on May 27, 1972. They were blessed with two girls and two boys, Amanda, Jacob, Michael, and Sarah.

Jeff spent his entire career as a carpenter. Initially, he used his skills building houses. He then became a member of the Carpenters and Joiners Union while working for Van Osdel Plastering and Drywall. Many commercial projects in Sioux City bear his mark. Jeff retired in 2017.

Jeff had many interests, including genealogy, fishing, gardening, and watching the Iowa Hawkeye football games. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do as a handyman. Jeff served as a Cub Master for Pack III at Crescent Park United Methodist Church, President of SYA – Siouxland Youth Athletics, and attended Grace United Methodist Church.
