They wed in 1993 and were together for almost 35 years until his passing. They loved to travel, having visited several different countries over the years. when pressed to pick a favorite destination, Nate would typically choose Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands. He had a passion for landscaping, loved grilling, playing dominoes and socializing with family and friends. He was also an aquarist and sports enthusiast, with a special love for his Kansas City Chiefs. Beneath his comedic exterior lay a genuine warmth and kindness that touched the hearts of those fortunate enough to know him. Whether it was a lighthearted prank or a perfectly timed one-liner, Nate’s hilarious antics never failed to brighten the mood and left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered.
