Nash grew up in Portales and graduated from Portales High in 1981, where he played defensive back on the state championship football team. On July 2, 1982 he was married to Edwina Garnanez. For several years, Nash worked at the local Gibson's store.

For several years he has made his home in Laredo, TX where he managed the Family Dollar and finally Party City. While he was in Portales, he helped year after year with the "Santa Cop" program.
Nash enjoyed gardening and taking care of his vehicles. He loved to walk, and never missed a morning no matter what the weather was like. He was a diehard fan of the Dallas Cowboys, and of the San Antonio Spurs. He also liked watching wrestling matches and playing basketball with his friends. He was a devoted husband and father, and a doting grandfather. Nash was a member of the Catholic Church.
