NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Metro police officer was found dead in his Tusculum area home on Monday. He apparently died from natural causes.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said Andrew Nash, 30, was found dead inside his home on McMurray Drive. According to Aaron, Nash died of natural causes.

Police said his dad, former Metro police Commander Bob Nash, made the discovery after being unable to reach his son earlier in the day.

"Officer Nash was an extremely well-liked and respected officer who was carrying on his father's fine tradition of service to Nashville and its citizens," said Chief Steve Anderson in a news release. "The Nashville Police Department is a family. Our hearts are deeply saddened by Andy's untimely passing."

Andrew Nash was a 2001 graduate of Overton High School. He serviced in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2003 to 2007 before joining the police department in December 2007.

Funeral services for Andrew Nash will be held Friday, April 25 at 10 a.m. at St. Edwards Church, 188 Thompson Lane.

A reception will be held at noon after the service at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge, 440 Welshwood Drive.

Andrew Nash graduated second in his academy class. He was a member of the police department's on-call SWAT team and was assigned to the South Precinct's afternoon patrol detail where he assisted in the field training of new officers. He was also a board member of the Andrew Jackson Lodge of the FOP.

The FOP Lodge will be accepting cards of condolences for the Nash family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Andrew Jackson Police Youth Camp in memory of Andrew Nash.
