Dad’s final promise fulfilled: Giving away the bride

CLEVELAND – An Ohio cancer patient has died less than three weeks after attending his daughter’s wedding on a gurney to fulfill his promise to walk her down the aisle.

A spokesman for University Hospitals in Cleveland said 56-year-old Scott Nagy died at the hospital Monday.

The terminally ill Brunswick man wore a tuxedo and arrived by ambulance for his daughter Sarah’s Oct. 12 church wedding in Strongsville. Guests cried and clapped as the two made their way down the aisle with help from a volunteer team of medical professionals.

The Plain Dealer reported that from the gurney, Nagy gave away the 24-year-old bride, and when she burst into tears, he reminded her not to streak her makeup.

Nagy was diagnosed last year with urethral cancer and had been hospitalized for months.
