Amber and family,
Sorry to hear of your loss! I remember going to Orlando for training while with Navistar. The first time I had an opportunity to meet Amber if not mistaken. Nathan was always fun to work with his spirit lives on in those who had the privilege to know Nathan. . Sincerely, Jim Restemayer

My condolence to the family. I was a co-worker of Nate's at Navistar and used to travel on occasion to NAV Assembly plants with him. Just an all around nice guy. So sorry to read of his passing.

Nathan and I worked in the same building and always passed each other. He always had such a beautiful smile. When he was first diagnosed I couldn't believe it, and I have never seen anyone fight that horrible word cancer more than him.
