A Celebration of Life for Mr. Congress Ray Nash, 68 of Madison, Alabama  will be 1:00 pm Monday at Reynolds Funeral Home and interment in Sterrs Cemetery. Public viewing will be Sunday from 1:00-5:00 at Reynolds Funeral Home.

Congress Ray Nash “Ray”  as some knew him “Bae Bro” to the family that loved him an “Stroker” to the many friends that admired him often said that the best name that he was called was Husband by his loving wife of 45 years, and Dad by his children.

Ray was born to the late Minnie L. Hill Nash and William Henry Nash, Sr. on May 27, 1952 in Morgan County. He was called home to be with the Lord on February 21, 2021 in Harvest, AL.

Ray confessed his hope in Christ at an early age and later re-dedicated his life at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Edward L Owens as Pastor. Ray was a dedicated sports fan and looked forward to three things, Steelers football, Alabama football and spending countless hours watching Westerns. When he was not cooking he was telling stories and using phrases that always kept you laughing. He always kept a smile and never met an enemy.

Ray was preceded in death  by his parents, William Henry, Sr. and Minnie L. Nash; his loving wife, Mrs. Brenda G. Jackson Nash.

Ray leaves to cherish his memory: his children, Sherrell Rae Nash of Decatur, Terrence T. Jackson of Dothan, AL and Tamala N. Tabscott of Huntsville, AL; his siblings, Oscar L. “Butch” Nash of Decatur, Joyce M. Stevenson of Memphis, TN and Andra “Bunnie” Nash (Sharon) of Decatur; a special dedicated niece, Marketha M. Nash- Hewitt of Harvest, AL; 12 grandchildren, two great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
