I met Nathan while doing electrical work in the mid 80's. We worked together wiring machines...he was a great teacher and mentor....I truly loved this man...he was a class act in all areas. Just sorry I lost touch with him over the years...I would have given anything to see him before he left this earth. It gives me peace knowing how strong a christian he was..I know he's in heaven. God Bless Nathan's wife and family.
