Chief Nish was my boss as Camp Red Cloud in 1981. What a high class person. We always ate at the Katusa snack bar together. Every time he seen my Korean wife, he would ask if she was a new girl :-) When I was sent to William Beaumount Med Ctr at the Persido, who was stationed there, Chief Nish and guess what, he finally noticed my wife. We shall all miss him, Good by Chief Nish

Very sorry to learn of Nishi's passing. He was a sounding board for many agents who passed through the halls at Schofield(including me)and he always had a kind word. Condolences to Kazuko and her family.

Spent a tour in Hawaii with Mr Nish. I see the names of a couple others assigned there at the same time have already posted.

Mr. Nish was the District CIC. A consummate gentleman with enormous patience and a wealth of experience. May he rest in peace.

What a loss. Nishi was a great guy. I spent three years with him in Japan and again was with him at 6th Region. Best wishes to his family, wife and sons Koji and Duke.

I recall he had a special pen and I was always misplacing mine. When I asked to borrow his pen, he kept an eye on it (and me) like a hawk. Not sure what it was about that special pen, but it meant a lot to him.

I only interacted with Nishi a few times, but I think John and Dale summed up my impressions of him pretty well. I couldn't think of anything more to say. He was indeed a polite, well mannred and extremely helpful and caring man. May God bless Nishi and his family.

Nish was a gentle soul and always ready to lend a listening ear. He was a pleasure to work with in Hawaii. I used to tease him about trying to inject logic into CID's antiquated Criminal Information processes. He did his job with quite efficiency. It was hard to drag “war stories” out of him, but when you did, they were amazing. Rest in peace Nish.

We will always remember Nishi for his quiet manner, yet strong guidance and leadership both as a senior Warrant at 6th Region and when he came to us as Crim Info Coordinator in Hawaii. Rest in piece my friend.
