Ernest "Ernie" E. Nash, 84, of Madison, NJ passed away on January 29, 2019 at Morristown Medical Center.
Born in Culpepper, VA, Ernie resided in Madison for over 50 years.
Ernie proudly served his country in the 101st Airborne as a Paratrooper during the Korean War.
Ernie was the owner of Honor Tree and Lawn Service, Inc. in Madison for more than 50 years. He didn't finish much school, but finished every job he started!
Ernie was a member of the Madison "Huddle" Club, and the NJ Arborists Association.
Ernie is survived by his loving wife, Evelyn; and his devoted children, Sandy (Nash) Podimsky and her husband John, of Long Valley, and Chris Nash and his wife Sue, of Florham Park. He is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Dylan, Meghan, and Haley Podimsky, and Austin, Samantha, and Christopher Nash; as well as several nieces and nephews. Ernie was predeceased by his mother, Virginia, and his son, Ernie Nash, Jr.
Ernie was a well-respected and loved family man, always one to help anyone in need. The name of his company was fitting as he truly was an honorable man. Ernie loved the town of Madison and the many friends he made through the years. A simple man who could be seen driving his station wagon around town. Ernie's three loves were his family, his grandchildren, and his tree company.
