Nate moved to North Idaho when he was a year old with his father, Royce.

His positive attitude and zest for life were infectious and everyone that met him quickly grew to love him. Nate continued to grow and learn while becoming a bright light and teaching presence to those that accepted him into their lives, no matter the amount of time spent with him. Nate will be loved, cherished, and remembered for years and years to come.
