Gene Aubrey Nash was born on May 11, 1941 in Collins, Georgia to the late Willie Nash, Sr and the late Ethel Jackson Nash. He entered into eternal rest on March 19, 2022.

He accepted Christ into his life at an early age, and become a member of First St. John Primitive Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia, where he served as a Deacon and Chairman of the Deacon Board. Gene was also a faithful member of the New Mount Pleasant Primitive Baptist Association, as well as the Georgia State Primitive Baptist Convention, where he served on many committees.

Gene received his formal education in Tattnall County elementary and middle schools, and graduated from Tattnall County Industrial High School in 1959. He received his BSN degree in Social Science from Savannah State University, a Masters degree from Armstrong Atlantic State University, and a Doctorate degree from Berne University.
