Nap Edward Nasser

June 19, 1936 - June 18, 2021

Nap Edward Nasser, 84, of Sylvania OH and a seasonal resident of Fort Myers, FL for more than 20 years, passed away Friday June 18, 2021, in Fort Myers. He was born June 19, 1936, in Toledo, OH to Edward and Jeanette Nasser, now deceased.

Nap was of the Catholic faith and a member of St. Joseph Parish in Sylvania OH. He went to Gesu Catholic School as a child. He attended Campion Jesuit High School, a Jesuit boarding school for boys in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin where he met and made lifelong friends. He continued his education at The University of Toledo graduating with a degree in accounting. He took the exam and became a Certified Public Accountant. He worked with a number of firms in Toledo, most notably being a partner with Kleinman, Feldman & Nathanson.

When not at work, Nap enjoyed reading the Readers Digest while listening to a baseball game on the radio and watching golf on TV, all at the same time.

He was an avid golfer, and a longtime member of Highland Meadows Golf Club. Nap and Donna eventually decided to become snowbirds and bought a condominium in Fort Myers, FL. in 2001. They were members of the Heritage Palms Golf and Country Club Community in Ft. Myers where they enjoyed golf, tennis and hanging with their friends.

Nap was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2012. He was a boxer in his early days and used that ‘fight’ to overcome the disease and continue his retirement life for many years.

    Deepest sympathy to Nap’s loved ones. I had the pleasure of working with him for many years at Port Lawrence Title in Toledo.. He never hesitated to help or share his knowledge – he was a Mentor, Boss, and most of all a trusted and kind confidant and friend. I fondly remember a work trip to San Francisco, where he, Donna & I traveled. We shared some fun times in China Town, and a lovely dinner in Sausalito, special memories.
    Rest in Peace, Dear Friend.

    Connie and Christine, I was saddened to hear of Nap’s passing. Both he and Donna will be missed! I know Nap fought for a long time as did my Joyce.
    My deepest sympathies are with you both.
    I do hope you guys plan to keep the condo.
    Take care and hopefully I will see you this coming season.
