Martin George “8-Ball” Nyquist passed away on September 25, 2018 at 4:26 p.m. at Citadel in Elgin, IL. He was born January 27, 1939 in Duluth, MN; the son of the late George Martin Nyquist and Elizabeth LuVerne (Cook) Nyquist. Though his life was largely shrouded in mystery, he played for the 1959 White Socks until a tommy john injury ended his career. In 2002 8-Ball came to Bracht’ s Place in Bartlett where he became an institution, running Karaoke as the D.J until December 2016. It was there he touched many lives with his self-effacing humor. He is survived by many. There will be a brief memorial remembrance service held at Bracht’ s Place, 363 S. Prospect Ave., Bartlett on Friday October 5, 2018 at 7:15 pm. All are welcome. Special thank you to Laird Family Funeral Services.
