With heavy hearts , we will miss our adventurous and spontaneous Nathan, NateDog, PigPen, Junkmeister, Stripes, NaeNae. He was deeply loved and has left a forever lasting imprint on everyone he has met.
Nathan was passionate in everything he did but found a love in Demolition Derby racing and 4x4ing. He was notorious for building, creating, and anything that kept him greased up and dirty. He had several other talents and hobbies that kept him busy as well such as hunting, softball, golfing, and RC cars, mountain biking, right down to the little things like his crossword puzzle book and Rubiks cube. He had a love like no other for dogs and cats.
He was prideful in his work and love for welding. Working hard came natural to him and he was admired for his strong work ethic and talents as a young certified welder.
Nathan livened up a room and was the life of any event. His contagious laugh and infectious smile lit the world and warmed anyone that was down. He never failed to cheer anyone up with his humor, quirkiness and crazy fun attitude.
There was never a dull moment around Nathan as he was always creating and constructing new ideas with his talented mind and hands. His talents kept him busy as you could always find him helping others. More projects were started than ever completed as new ideas flooded his mind.
He was known for losing his wallet just about every week and as one dear friend said, he could pull off any hairstyle whether it be a mullet or his Bo Duke look. He even made a chipped front tooth look good. Apparently his daily Snapchats will be missed by his close friends.
Nathans death has rocked our little community and left a hurting heart in his family. His carefree spirit will live on. We love you Nathan James. Our life will never be the same.
