Each of us know how fortunate we were for having known Nate.
He had everything! He was kind, smart, funny, honest, hard working, generous, helpful, reliable, thoughtful, considerate, strong, cool, stylish, good looking ... the list is endless!
He treated everyone fairly with dignity & respect. The world was a better place with him in it.
But every time we think of him we will remember that we are better off now than we were before we knew him & because part of him will always live on in each of us.

There will never be another uncle Nate. There are so many memories I could share it’s hard to believe there will not be any more.

Elvis the pelvis, kicking Landon square in the chest, stabbing me with a pen for pencil whipping a dominos game you were keeping score on, Noah getting candy from “Uncle Nate” at 6 am, trying to convince Mike to steal my wallet the first time we met, “where’s your slipper Ray?”.... so many more

You were one of the funniest people I have ever met and no I’m calling you a clown :)

To Nathan's family. It is amazing how some people can touch so many lives. Nate was one of those people, who listened to everyone, touching all of our lives with his smiles. Every time I saw him, we'd immediately fist bump. It was almost like sharing strength, compassion, and a common understanding. I hope that you realize, there is a multitude of people who cared for him, in a way that is so abundant, that it pours over to our caring for you, and your loss. We are so sorry that a great man like Nate, is no longer around, to give us that smile, that conversation, that first bump to help us go forward in life each day.
