July 17, 1975 – December 9, 2022
In loving memory ~
Nate was born in Duncan and as a youngster, he had a love of team sports, especially baseball. Early on he discovered the library and had a lifelong love for reading.
He was born with hemophilia which dogged him his entire life. He suffered from chronic pain which led to other issues. He was pre-deceased by his half brother
Christopher who, at a very young age, perished due to complications. Nate was well aware of this and probably dreaded having to go to the hospital realizing at that time that his fate could be the same as Chris’.
Nate persevered and at a young age, he felt independent enough to venture out on his own. Initially, he worked at a local restaurant and did other odd jobs. He later ventured to Whistler, B.C. and then settled for work in Nelson, B.C. There he met a young woman and between them, they decided to reside in Victoria, B.C. where Nate stayed for the remainder of his shortened life.
He had an entrepreneurial bent where he fixed some electronic equipment, and he had a landscaping business which kept him in shape.
Nate was good-looking; had a ready smile and when he heard a funny joke it tickled his funny – bone. He was an engaging young man and could give you solid arguments regarding sports, provincial politics, and science.
Nate at a very young age succumbed to cancer. He admired his sister Johnna; he loved his great-aunt Inez and was well-liked by his close and distant relatives.
We would like to thank the people of Kool-Aid on Johnson St. in Victoria for the care and respect that they showed to Nate. We also want to thank the doctors, nurses and others of the Royal Jubilee Hospital Palliative Care Unit who cared for and attended to Nate’s needs in his dwindling days.
Nate is pre-deceased by his half-brother Christopher and survived by his sister Johnna, his mother Darlene and his father John.
We will miss his presence at the table.
