This is sad news indeed. I very much enjoyed talking with him last year.

Condolences to the Nash family.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Oh. I didn't know. Martin was a close friend - for oh, so many, years. I loved him. Oh, gosh... HL.

Sorry to hear this sad news. He leaves a wide wake with his passing.

...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

I hope that his final days were peaceful. I remember thinking in my early magic career, that I could finally perform some really good, strong magic after I had learned his infinity principal. Great stuff that I still use to this day.

He will indeed be missed.

Martin's last official lecture was here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This was about one year after his terrible car accident. You could tell he was still suffering from some of the effects of the accident, but he still put on a terrific show. His charisma and charm won over the room within seconds and the time just flew by.

For the last several years, I have been privileged to call Martin one of my closest friends in magic (which some may find strange since I'm not a card man). I've literally spent days at a time with Martin as he regaled me with stories from his past. I think that's what I'll miss the most.

Last summer, when I became a member of the Magic Castle, Martin met up with me in L.A. We spent 3 days together as he enthusiastically showed me where he used to live, the airfield where he used to fly his RC planes, and the magic shop on Hollywood Blvd.

I still remember when we approached Hollywood Magic, Martin turned to me and said, "You know, I used to spend a lot of time in this shop. In fact, I spent so much time here the guys gave me my own stool with my name engraved in it. That was a long time ago." Well, as we approached the shop, you could tell it was a Saturday afternoon. The place was packed and magicians behind the counter were busily showing there wares. Then, one of the guys looked up and saw us. Everything stopped. Suddenly one of them yelled out, "It's Martin Nash!". He immediately sprung into action, ran in the back room and re-emerged with a tall wooden stool containing a little gold plaque. It simply read, "Martin A. Nash - The Charming Cheat".

After several hours in Hollywood Magic, we worked our way up to the Magic Castle where I was treated to a personal tour by the M.A.N. himself. Martin knew every nook and cranny of the Grand Old House and he seemed to get younger with every step he took. Martin may have lived in Parksville, B.C., but he CAME ALIVE at the Magic Castle.

These are experiences that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Martin, you will be missed. Thank you so much for your friendship and for the memories we shared together.

I learned the tabled faro from him.
He is a big loss, but his filmed work will keep in alive in our hearts.
