Survived by his parents, Ken and Pam; daughter, Reese and her mother, Jessi Tolley; brother, Ben; adopted Aunt, Amy Waage; grandparents, Dean (Gloria) Heimdal and Geri (Marv) Smith; also by other loving relatives and many friends. He was also preceded in death by his sense of humor. Nate was a friend to his everyone. He befriended new kids in school and always made them feel welcome. He loved to play soccer. Ken called him Scooter from watching him scoot up and down the fields. He excelled in soccer and was co-captain of his high school soccer team. He was on the Homecoming Court at Lakeville HS. He tried basketball and wrestling and baseball. He quit wrestling after 1 season because he didn’t like to hug sweaty guys. He was extremely gifted at foosball, darts, and pretty much every other game of coordination. Nate loved reading joke books. He’d fall asleep many times as a kid with a joke book in his hands. Nate had a love/hate relationship with our dog Mindy. Mindy weighed more than he did, so he had quite a time controlling her when out on a walk. Nate loved his family, his friends and his cousins. In fact, Nate loved everyone. He especially loved his daughter, Reese. He was always so happy when his days with Reese came around. He loved making her laugh. In High School, Nate worked at McDonald’s when it first opened up in Lakeville. His restaurant career was comprised of Perkins, Mankato Country Club and Harry’s Restaurant. He had a knack for forgetting to turn in orders, so his time in the restaurant business was cut short. Nate graduated from Lakeville High School in 1998. He spent 1 semester at the U of MN and then transferred to Mankato State. He graduated from Mankato with a BS in Math and Economics. Nate worked at American Bank, First Resource Bank and East Bank. Then he started preparing taxes at his mother’s tax office. He worked there off and on for several years. Nate married Jessi Tolley in September 2015. Reese was born in June 26, 2016. They later divorced. Nate was a very kind soul. He was not at all successful financially, but he succeeded in relationships. We love you, Nate, and we will miss you always!
