OBITUARY

Nathan Alexander Hardin

December 20, 1978September 7, 2020

Nathan Alexander Hardin, 41, of 2280 Winding Dr, Longmont, son of Ronelva (Robin) of Longmont, and Gary Lee of Firestone, passed away peacefully September 7, 2020 at Longmont United Hospital.

He was born in Portsmouth, Va. on December 20, 1978, but moved with his family to Longmont in 1980.

He attended Tiny Tim Developmental Preschool, Mountain View Elementary, and graduated from Skyline High School. Currently, he was attending CORE.

He had volunteered at Longmont Humane Society as a puppy cuddler, for the Salvation Army as a Holiday bell ringer, and for the Northern Colorado Alzheimer Association as a wheelchair rider in honor of his Grandmother, Caroline Bartram.

Nathan loved swimming. He was free to move in the water without the constraint of his cerebral palsy. He also loved all kinds of music: Tex-Mex, pop, and children’s. The louder the music, the better. He attended many concerts over the years. He loved to play the piano, and had an African drum he banged. He especially enjoyed Elton John’s piano playing. He was a good bowler, who regularly beat his friends. Nathan was a people watcher, even at the zoo. He was friendly and would hold hands with anyone who offered theirs. He was well known in the Longmont and Boulder communities, and will be missed by many.

He is survived by his parents, brother, Gary Charles, and his wife, Christine, of Hamlet, N.C., and Aunts and Uncles and cousins around the country.

A Memorial is being planned for Saturday, October 10 via ZOOM. If you want to attend the Memorial, leave your name and phone number or email in the condolence section of the Ahlberg Funeral Chapel website.

I am so sorry for your loss, Robin. We met only a few months ago, but it was evident how much Nathan was always with you in mind and spirit.

I look forward to joining in his memorial .

Robin, Gary, and "Little" Gary,
I am saddened to learn of Nathan's passing. I will always remember how much Nathan loved being at school. He was certainly a student one could tell when he was happy, sad, or sick. And I would guess that 95% of the time he was so happy. I am honored to have been his teacher when he was at Heritage Middle School. Rest in peace, sweet Nathan.

Dearest Robin, You and Nathan were such an inspiration to me as I started the same journey you were on. All the trials Nathan had as a young child made me wonder how long he could endure. To know he overcame so much and lived a good life, really warms my heart. Still, a great loss no doubt. I hope the heartache soon gives way to happy memories. You deserve that. Nathan was blessed to have such a great and devoted mom and I was blessed to have had your support when I needed it. With my deepest sympathy and love, Barb S.

So many memories of the early mom's group that came together in support of each other. Erin and Nathan on the floor together - each with a twinkle in their eyes. A special bond brought us together and our memories sustain us. Thinking of you Robin and sending you love.
Please send link for zoom when you have it.
