Sorry to hear of Mr. Nassiff's passing. I shopped in the store quite often back in the day and had some great conversations with him. I knew his brother Fred also, as well as Fred's wife and daughters. To the family I send my condolences on the loss of a truly good man. RIP.

Dear Jim, Sue and Rick:

I just learned of your dad‘s passing. Obviously, there truly are no words to express my deepest condolences and prayers for all of you. Having known your dad and all of you as far back as I can remember, you know that he has had a lasting impact on my life as well. He was truly a beautiful man! He was genuine, loving, generous and a true role model to all who knew him. I am blessed to have known him and all of you. Clearly, a part of him and your mom lives on in all of you, Particularly in the Beautiful ways you have raised your own children. I am honored to have had him in my life and hope to also help continue his legacy in someway. May God bless all of you and my love to you all.

My deepest sympathy to the Nassiff family, Mr. Nassiff and my father Charlie Coriaty were pretty good friends.

MY father would take me every year to The Nassiff’s Sports store for basketball sneakers.

God bless the Nassiff family.

Sue, Jimmy and Rick,

Your mom and dad were always such sweethearts. It was heartwarming to watch the love between them. And so now my heart goes out to you, with sympathy for such a final loss.

Cal used to tell me stories about calling your dad because the leather lacing on his baseball glove had broken during a game at night. And your dad would just say, "bring it by the house tonight and I'll have it laced for you before your game tomorrow afternoon." That's the kind of guy he was. Always helping and giving to athlete's and the community. His heart was so big. There was always a way to do something for others. This is just one story out of many told by athletes in the area.

He will be remembered for this generosity.
With my deepest sympathies,
Kathy Chowanec

I was so sorry to read about the loss of your dad. It was so nice for me and my mom to see you both just a few months ago, at Quest. My mom really enjoyed seeing you both.
Please know that my heart, thoughts and prayers are with you. It’s such a difficult loss, as there is no other bond quite like the bond between a father and a daughter.
Much love and hugs to you all...
