This is really bad news!

Phil was such a well-informed and helpful man. I still recall how the various lists of female office holders he had compiled over the decades by sifting through Third Reich documents and publications were the cornerstone of many of my researches.

My condolences to his family and anyone who was close to him.
Rest in peace, Phil.

Cordially

It's difficult to put words on how much Phil will be missed. My first and foremost thoughts and condolences goes to his lovely wife Rita. Phil's efforts to help anyone was genuin and we are many who have been assisted by Phil over the years.

I miss him and will miss our telephone calls which were fewer over the last years but still.

Rest in peace old friend!

Knowing him for 30 years he was always there to help all and especially among this forum. The loss of a great historian. All should thank him for the untold amount of facts and images he shared with everyone.

My condolences to Rita and am sure all prayers are with her.

Haven't visited in a while and was completely shocked when I read that Phil has passed away. Phil was always at hand to answer any questions I had.....and I had many.

I echo Joe W's sentiments. Terribly sad.

Dear friends,

I sent to his beloved wife a copy of your numerous messages and informed her his section was honored by his name in memory. She called me today. She said me it was warm to read you kind words and attentions.
Thanks to you all.
We have had a long discussion. I can say you that Phil took dispositions upon his archives.

Received this shocking and sad news on a working trip and was unable to respond immediately. I will not say a lot of words, because all knew who was Phil, only I hope we will be able to meet with those whom we have lost over the years and they will be waiting for us there. My condolences to the family and all his friends.

Rest in Peace, Dear Phil

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Phil had indeed helped solve my questions when I was on line. I'm been hearing about plenty of people that I know that had passed away and went to Heaven to be with God. General Norman Schwartzkoff was one them. Now I silently salute Phil Nix as he departed from this troubled world of ours! I think he meet plenty of World War II veterans while up in Heaven!

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao
