Nathan David Kowacich
August 25, 1961 – April 21, 2019
Nathan David Kowacich was born August 25, 1961 to George and Irene Kowacich and he went home to his Father on April 21, 2019 at the age of 57 years.
He had a knack for entertaining people from very diverse walks of life. He loved nothing better than to cook or grill for his guests and bring laughter and really good music to the party. When people met him, they were immediately drawn to his warmth, friendliness and genuine care for others.
In his younger days he loved being outdoors and he loved to camp, hike, rock climb and rappel.. His favorite area to visit was the Big Bend area in Texas and he visited often.
When he married his wife Gina Kowacich, he became a Georgia University, Bulldog, fan! Nothing made him happier on a Saturday than a great game and great win, surrounded by friends and great tail-gating fun!
Nate had a special relationship with his Father and his Savior Jesus and remarked several times how he was so blessed to be saved and have a heavenly hope. We're so glad he is pain free and with his heavenly Father and his parents and other loved ones that preceded him.
Nate is preceded in death by his mother, Ola Irene Kowacich, his father George Kowacich and survived by his daughter Paige Lollar, son-in-law, Jeffrey Lollar and two beautiful grand children, Abygail and Hudson. He came from a large family and is survived by three brothers, Nolan and wife Merilla, Gordon and wife Mary, Daniel and wife Donna and six sisters, Jean Tullous, Darlene Garrett, Brenda Casey, Debbie Kowacich, Jo Mays and husband Fred, and Rebekah Perry along with numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
He will be missed by many.
May our Father help him rest in peace and may our Father wrap his arms of comfort around all those that will miss him.

I believe that you never forget your childhood friends, especially the ones that grew up in the same neighborhood as you because that is where our parents choose to put down roots and purchase a home at. Yes, you will probably lose touch with them because of the different roads each individual takes while growing up and upon leaving school.
However, each time I visit Odessa and take memory drives and drive by the old homesteads I remember you and your family. I wonder how your life turned out. I wonder if your happy. Being able to reconnect with several childhood friends via Facebook is a blessing. It was a blessing to reconnect with you after years even if only for a few short months. Remembering your sense of humor, your strength, your courage, your confidence, and the love you had for your family will always be traits that I will associated with you each time I think of you or talk about you. Friends are and always will be a gift from God. Friends are and always will bring joy and happiness into your life. That is why I can honestly say I was blessed to be your friend. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Rest in Peace Nathan Kowacich!
