Nate was known as an all-star athlete in high school. He played football, participated in wrestling, and ran on the track team. He retired from his career as a long waller at Consol Coal after 23 years of dedicated service. He never turned down a football wager during games with friends. He enjoyed spending his free time shooting craps and watching horse races at the Meadows Casino. He enjoyed exercising and listening to music. He was a fan of sweets and loved ice cream. Most of all, he enjoyed his quiet time at home sitting on the deck with his wife and best friend of 23 years.
