First of all, let me express the condolences of the whole Fort Collins handball community to the family and friends of Jerry. I knew Jerry for years; and we talked more about baseball. My son (now 18) played baseball for Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins. However, he was better in soccer. Of course he plays handball as well . Jerry and him would have very good coaching discussions of all three sports at the Denver Athletic Club during Handball Tournaments. We will miss you Jerry ⚾️⚽️🔵👏🙏🏻

I am so sorry to hear about Jerry’s passing. I grew up playing at his house with his daughters. He and Rosemary, his wife were always so kind to me and my sister. Even as I grew up and returned to Denver, we would catch up at village parties. He always wanted to know how things were going and always talked about how he missed my Dad who died in 2002. I am thankful to have known Jerry and send lots of love to his family.

Wonderful guy! I first met Jerry at the age of 12 while playing Little League - we were on the same All Star team and we continued to be friends through high school. He was smart, dedicated and easy going. Prayers and best wishes to Jerry's family .

From the Southport High School Class of 1963, Jerry will always be remembered as one of the most respectable men not only in the community & the business world. He was cherished by his Cardinal friends -- especially those closest to him. He always came to our high school reunions and he brought joy to us all. I remember his laugh and his sense of humor especially when all of us told stories that became embellished over the years. God bless you Jerry Nigh & family. See you on the other. I can imagine you teeing off right now with fellow Southport '63 grads Mike Shore & John Iselin.

Remember fondly our days at IU when we double dated and enjoyed Indiana basketball and 1967 Big 10 Champs football season. Phi Gamma Delta (Fiji) dances and our Intramural sports competition were special highlights. Fiji Isle's were a blast. Will miss him deeply. Love you Rosie. God Bless all of the Nigh family.
