Crazy neighbor. Sometimes loyal friend. Sometimes antagonist. He lived large. He will be missed. Sympathies to Carol Sue and the rest of his family.

We met at Taylor Rd. Elementary School in I don't know, the 4th grade? He had a broken arm. We became arms length friends but he was always a part of my Cleveland Heights experience through 12th grade. Even when I came back for a visit in '95 to see my now dearly departed best bud Tom Vanni, Nate popped into the convo. And in the last several years thanks to Face Book we reconnected and shared life's experiences, and he was never shy about sharing his love for Israel and the Jewish people. I cannot speak for the interim years, but I pray that Nate now rests in peace and I give my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
