Nathaniel Marcus Way left this world March 4, 2014.Â He was born June 16, 1990 in Fort Hood, Texas.
He was a proud father, treasured son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew and friend to many.Â Also known by his nickname âClydeâ by some, Nathan proudly served as a Combat Engineer 12B with the âHooligans 2nd Platoonâ in Iraq. He was a hero to many and he always said he wanted to âchange the world,â and as his father I am writing this to tell you a little about my son, because he did change mine.Â Nathan had a heart of gold, he gave the best hugs in the world and a smile that could brighten the darkest room.Â He was one of the greatest joys of my life.Â
Nathan is survived by a precious son, Jaxon Edmund Way; parents, Andrew and Grace Way of Clyde, Texas;Â sister, Andi Morgan Campion and her husband Michael of Abilene, Texas;Â brothers, Zachary Way of Clyde, Texas and Nixon and Joseph Urbanczyk of San Antonio, Texas; too many cousins, family and friends to mention them all; and a band of Hooligan brothers.Â
Nathan always said that family is not always blood and although my son left this world far too early for us all, we must remember how precious life is and remember all the wonderful times we shared with him.Â
In lieu of flowers, cards, or any gesture of respect in his memory, we ask that you simply do something kind for another person.
