Nathan Thomas Yunker

4 January, 199110 February, 2020

It is with a broken heart that we write this. Our beloved son & brother Nate, born Nathan Thomas Yunker on January 4th, 1991; has unexpectedly passed away on February 10, 2020. Nate was always an active, happy, joking, generous, humble, and hard working man. Nate grew up in Spokane, graduated in 2009 from Shadle Park high school, and stayed close to home by working at a local casino. He loved working on vehicles as much as he loved to drive them fast. If he wasn’t riding in something with four wheels than he was riding something on two, whether it had an engine or not he loved his bikes! He was also an extremely talented photographer. He also had a deep love for the lake and watersports. The past few years he has struggled, but through it all he kept trying, he kept relying on his close friends and family to help him through. He is survived by his parents Steve & Debby Yunker, his sisters; Lynette (and all her animals), Kim(Manny) Nephew Levi and Niece AvaClare, Leslie(J.R) and nephews William and Tanner. Along with numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents, and dozens of friends. His service will be on Saturday, February 15th with a viewing at 10 am, service at 11 am with a private graveside burial at 12:30, a meal will be after, at Country Church of the Open Bible on 40015 N Collins Rd Elk WA 99009, Corner of Elk -Chattaroy Hwy and Collins Rd. In lieu of flowers his family asks that you donate to your favorite charity or help out someone in need which is what he asked for his birthday this year. #doitfornate

“Derek told us the devastating news. As a dad & mom to loose a child would be unbearable. I cannot express how my heart is breaking for you. I have very fond memories of Nathan. The many adventures our boys had together. . . building bike trails and ramps, going off a ramp on their bikes into the lake, working and riding on their motorcycles, teasing their sisters. We felt blessed that Derek had a friend like Nathan. You are in our prayers and thoughts.

There are really no words that could express how very sad I am for all of you. It is difficult to lose someone you love but even more so when they are taken too soon. Please know that Nathan will always be with you. He lives on in your heart and memories and that will be with you forever.
