Bruce Warren Nash
May 10, 1931- July 25, 2020
On July 25th, 2020, Bruce Warren Nash, 89, of Huntingtown, MD, passed away in his home. Bruce was born on May 10th, 1931, to Gertrude Persson Nash Magnuson and Vernon Flower Nash in Elgin, Illinois. After the untimely death of his father, his mother later re-married to Alfred L. Magnuson, Bruce’s beloved stepfather. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Jennie Bowen Nash, a native of Calvert County. He was fortunate to be the father of three children: Bradford Nash, Sr. (wife-Dorothy), Jacquelyn Nash, Joyce Nash-Ewen (husband-Timothy) who all survived him. His grandchildren are Bradford Nash, Jr. (wife-Kelli), Alan Nash, Matthew Hilldrup (wife-Bowie), Bryan Hilldrup, Christopher Hilldrup, and Amy Ewen. Bruce was preceded in death by two sisters, Shirley Parker and Janice Brown.
Bruce worked as a patent/trademark searcher for the firm of Cushman, Darby & Cushman located in Washington, DC for more than 40 years. He was also a member of the Potomac River Power Squadron teaching the basics of boating and navigation. Bruce was an avid sailor who enjoyed boating for years out on the Chesapeake Bay he loved. His lifetime joys were reading his trove of books, building model trains, and watching and collecting movies. After retirement, Bruce and Jennie moved to the family farm in Huntingtown where he spent many happy hours out cutting grass on his tractor.
