Nicholas B. "Nick" McNair died January 31.

AQHA has received word of the passing of Nicholas B. "Nick" McNair, a longtime Heritage Place employee and horseman.

"He was a good guy and a good horseman who worked every sale at Heritage Place for decades," says AQHA Past President Frank Merrill. "He passed away Janaury 31, just a couple of weeks shy of his 93rd birthday. "

Frank said Nick was born February 16, 1926, in Strang, Oklahoma.

"Nick enjoyed a good horse and a good laugh," Merrill recalled. "He was the father of Gary McNair and the grandfather of Monty McNair and Jeff McNair. (Nick's) quick and sincere smile will be missed by many."
