Nathan was known for his skills as an all-around handyman and his incredible craftsmanship when it came to renovations. His attention to detail was evident in every project he took on. He would do anything for a laugh and always enjoyed a good dare.
Anyone that truly knew Nathan knew he had a big heart. He would light up the room and make everyone laugh at his crazy jokes and personality.
He was a beautiful soul who had a joke for every situation no matter how serious.
