Nathan Edward Allen’s journey started in Austin, Texas on May 14th, 1997. He was born to parents Chris Allen and Hollie Costello. He was loved and treasured by his younger brother Cameron; Grandparents - Grandma Rosemary, Nonnie Miki, Nana Sherrie, Grandpa Rick; Uncles - Jeb, Will, Cody, Richard, Matt, Gordon, Matt, Glenn Ray, and Eddy; Aunts - Maya, Larkie, Tabitha, Sarah, Jessie, and Katie, Vicky, Becky, and Marta; Cousins - Nicholas, David, Nicky, Tutie, Isabel, Jill, Maya, Maverick, John, Xela, Jonathan, Jackson, Joash, Emily, and Austin; and countless friends that were considered family.

He made everything better with his sarcastic sense of humor and stubbornness. Every family gathering was made more lively by his presence. When we think of Nato, we remember fishing, wrestling, how he owned and managed Dance Across Texas, beach trips, sodas, french fries, destroying pinatas, cruises, his love for collecting things, and long drawn out birthday songs.

Nathan had a special relationship with his dad, Chris, although hard sometimes they had an unyielding bond and idolized each other. No matter what Nathan threw at Chris he never left his side and is heartbroken at his loss. Chris is so proud to have been his dad.

He was strong, brave, witty and loved beyond measure. Nathan was the one-of-a-kind, precious piece of the puzzle of his big crazy family. His smile, laugh, cuddles, energy, and presence will be missed dearly. His family is thankful for 21 years with him, but looks forward to seeing him again in eternity.

He battled and defied the odds of Cystic Fibrosis for 21 years, before falling ill with pneumonia in early May 2019. Nathan’s journey ended on May 7th, 2019.

Always loved, forever missed, never forgotten.

I just heard the news of Nathan's passing. I have some very funny memories of this sweet boy that I'll always cherish. My heart breaks for his family as I know this isn't easy. I do believe that he is in a much better place and that he no longer has to struggle with that terrible disease. Sending lots of love to your family Nathan. May you rest in peace my friend.

Nathan Edward Allen
First grandson born I remember when I
Looked in his eyes-he looked rightbback
The first of many new things. I watched
Him grow When he was 1. Cystic Fibrosis
Was his illness that he was born with !
Life was hard for him hospitals at least
21 times- bravely he fought- to be told in
Early this May- You are out of the CF program
Nothing more we can Do. So he said yes there
Is. I will change the diagnosis -5/8/19 he left
His way-on his terms -the bravest Nate always
Sleep little darling. Don not cry. Ur free

I will remember Nathan as the sweetest little boy that anyone could ever know. I was a part of his life until around age seven and I distinctly remember the day his mother told me of his condition. I still feel that feeling that made my heart sink. I remember the countless visits to the hospital this young boy endured while Chris and Hollie devoted their entire beings to his health and security. The cards were stacked against him but his spirit never waivered, his tiny voice never broke and his love for us and our love for him made all of us better people.
My deepest sympathy's goes to Chris and Hollie, Rosemary and Miki and his surrounding family members. God bless you Nathan.
In loving memory,

Hollie Costello
