March 11, 1981 – Stoneham, Massachusetts
February 17, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta
Nathan Huggins-Rosenthal, age 34, slipped away from this world on February 17, 2016 at home.
Nathan was a kind, generous, soft-hearted and often quiet guy who adored animals and little children, and was deeply loved by his family and friends. From childhood he enjoyed watching the business news every night, then later on reading the stock market pages, a fascination that led him to a career in the stock market – despite his mother’s advice that he go into veterinary medicine.
Nathan grew up in a large, unconventional and loving family, and is survived by his mother and father; stepmother and stepfather; brother and sister; half-sister and half-brother; two step-sisters and three step-brothers; a niece and two nephews; as well as his partner.
The entire family is heartbroken beyond words at this tragic loss of a beautiful soul.
Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding
of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment,
and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.
A Celebration of Nathan’s Life will be held at The Sky Bar – Saltlik Lounge, 101 8th Ave SW on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
