Stu Nahan, TV and radio sportscaster, feature film actor, professional hockey goalie, and friend to all in the sports world, died today at his Studio City, CA home following a two year battle with lymphoma. He was 81.

The Los Angeles Times was the first publication to post an article on Nahan's passing. However, Larry Stewart's piece was long on facts but fell very short on describing the character and personality of the man.

In addition to what was posted by the Times, Stu received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just this past May 25.

It may not possible to count the number of people who considered themselves friends of Stu's, and the remembrances to be printed and aired soon from people in and out of the sports world will no doubt mirror the man's enormous reach.

More to follow...
