I only knew Nate for the time he was in Oneida and was a friend to my daughter Becky. I got to know a wonderful, kind and positive side of Nate. For that I am thankful. My heart felt condolences to his family and friends. God Bless You Nate.

Nate, you're in a good place now, only the good die young..you were a sweetheart. You would do anything to help someone. I miss your bright smile, everytime i see you, you would run up and give me a big hug and a kiss on the forhead. You have a big heart nate, everytime i look outside I just wish you'd be walking down the street running towards me!..I'm just glad your in a safe place now, I hope they're taking good care of you up there in heaven!

I met Nate last year and instantly saw his sweetness and geniune niceness. In a world that is very judgemental, he helped me have confidence. There is one thing we can be sure....he got his wings. I'm praying for the family, I kno how much u love him and know he sends u strength.

I met Nate about 5-6 years ago through some mutual friends and also was in the same class through summer youth in 2006 with him. He always had a huge smile on his face no matter what, and he was always a sweetheart to everyone that he met. My deepest sympathy goes to the family and friends that were close to Nate. Just remember everything happens for a reason and he is in a better place now looking down on all of us making sure that we are ok. He would want everyone to stay strong and keep living life. Just know that you will be missed very much Nate.

The first time i met Nate i was at a friends house and we were all hanging out. I was so hungry he offered me his burger he just got. He's a sweet guy and i miss him already. Sorry i didnt come to the funeral or anything. i've just had so many to go to this past year. and i couldnt stand seeing one of my friends that way.. :( we all miss him.

I was so saddened when I heard about Nate today. I remember when I first met Nate and I would always spell his name NAT. He was my little buddy, he was like a son to me. I remember when he was at the house and we went to play softball. He said he never played but when he put that glove on it was like he was a member of a professional team. Nate was good at everything he did. Nate I will miss you little BUDDY! MAY YOU RIP. I am truely sorry for his family. My sympathy to his family, his mom, his aunt and his sister whom I only met once. I am truly sorry for your loss. I will remember Nate forever. RIP NAT!

Nate, I remember when Brandi introduced you to me a few years- you were so respectful towards me and my daughter I thought to myself wow kids dont act like this anymore but my dear you were the exception and Im so glad that she met you. Brandi is going to college in Maryland now but I remember when she met you at a mutual friends house...dinner had been cooked and you went and made her a plate...just a small gesture but she was shocked at how kind you were! You were so nice & sweet and you are definately gone too soon. Maybe God needed you for more important things in Heaven. Tom, Michelle and Family I am so sorry for your loss. I'll let Brandi write her words when she's able. Sincerely, Theresa
