Nathan McKay Merrill

June 16, 1999 ~ January 12, 2019 (age 19)
Nathan was the cutest, happiest, blue-eyed boy, who loved to run and jump, be spoiled by his immediate and extended family, and give hugs.  As he grew, he became a tall and handsome, tender-hearted man who loved the outdoors, running with his high school track and cross country team, playing all sorts of games, music, reading, fishing, spending time with the Sanders family and his best friends Jacob and Josh, and serving as a missionary in the England, London Mission.  Above all else, he desired to genuinely love others and to always do what is right.  Although he left us far too young and will be missed more than we can express, his desire to show kindness to others will continue to help and inspire us to be better, loving, and more patient.   
Nathan leaves behind many who love him, including his mother, Dara, sisters, Emily and Mihkenna, and his furry friend, Itzy, his father, grandparents, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, who were also family to him.  We are comforted to know that loved ones greeted him as he passed from this life to the next, and we look forward to seeing him again to feel one of his heavenly hugs!  We love you, Nathan, now and forever.
