Once you became "one of his" then there was nothing he wouldn't do for you. Nate attended Normal Community High School and worked for Tartan Realty Group managing their properties in Bloomington and Normal. He enjoyed dirt bikes and going mudding with his reconfigured truck. He also competed in tough truck competitions in Central Illinois. But most of all Nate loved to spend time with Jake teaching him the skills and trades he would need as he got older.\r\n\r\nCremation rites have been accorded. Nate also chose to donate his tissue to Gift of Hope so others might benefit. There will be a visitation/open house on March 20, 2021 at Jacob's Well Community Church from noon to 3pm. Because of Covid restrictions there will be a limit of fifty people at a time inside the building so we ask that you are mindful of others.
