WACK, Nathan Russell
March 9, 1994 – Red Deer, Alberta
January 4, 2015 – Ghost Lake Reservoir, Alberta
On January 4, 2015, Nathan was tragically taken from us in a motor vehicle accident as a passenger while camping, an activity he enjoyed so much.
Nathan spent his early childhood growing up in Red Deer. During that time he learned to fish, gold-pan, hike, camp, tinker, garden and enjoy the outdoors with his family. Nathan was a precocious and inquisitive child.
In 2000, Nathan and his family moved to Calgary. Nathan had many wonderful memories with his family. Trips to Florida, Disney and the Grand Canyon to name a few. Spending time with his family and pets was something Nathan loved. He truly enjoyed the special one on one time he had with each of us.
Nathan created lifelong friendships with everyone he met. Those friendships included amazing adventures such as camping, fishing, off-roading, remote control trucks, tinkering on cars, campfires, video gaming, building computers, cooking, archery and playing pranks.
Nathan was the kindest young man anyone ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was a hard worker, loved life, his family, his friends and his pets immensely. He had a sharp sense of wit and humour. Nathan was always the first one there to lend a helping hand. He was apprenticing for Marlborough Ford and was to start the SAIT Ford Asset program on January 5th.
“A great man is one who leaves others at a loss after he is gone”
Nathan was a great man whose memory will be forever honoured with kindness.
