He attended Odessa College for Automotive Diesel Mechanic. Nathan was a loving and caring person. His heart was so big he had room for everyone and he never met a stranger. Even though God blessed us with him for a short time, he touched many lives with his famous big bear hugs, smiles and unconditional love. Nathan was an old soul with a witty sense of humor that guaranteed a smile on your face. He showed his love, support and compassion to all those in need and as an unwavering friend and brother. He was known to his friends as Big Nate. He loved dancing and no one in the room was left sitting down when he was present. Nathan loved music and working on his truck.
