Nate was born in London, Ontario on April 21, 1990. He was a well known and loved member of the London community. Known for his generosity and sense of humour, he made a lasting impact wherever he went. He is fondly remembered by his Medway Highschool family as an avid athlete, talented musician and for his friendly, inclusive persona. He is greatly missed by his peers in the Ontario craft beer industry, who knew him for his passion and generosity.

 

He married his wife of 7 years after first asking her to the prom when they were 18. He loved spending time with his family and friends, going to concerts, sports games, biking and playing on his local hockey and baseball teams. You could often find Nate enjoying his favourite foods on a local patio with his wife, watching sports with his Dad, or at number one on the leaderboard of any trivia game about The Office.
