Mr. Thomas passed away on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at his residence. He was born to Jeff Thomas and Teresa Eubanks.

Nathan was born December 20, 1983, and came home in a Christmas stocking. He could light up a room with his smile. Although his life took a rocky path, he was brilliant, and he did everything he did passionately. He served seven years in the Navy. He was proud of his son Kadin, and he loved gaming with him. He had a soft heart for any animal whether it was a dog, cat, or a snake. He loved fishing, kayaking, rap music, and nature photography. Nathan had an uncommon spirit to which people were naturally drawn, and he left his imprint on this life. He will not be forgotten.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Eli Thomas; grandfather, W. J. Thomas; and cousin, Isaac Thomas.

Survivors include his son: Kadin Thomas; father: Jeff (Shearld) Thomas; mother: Teresa Eubanks; sister: Destani (Dalton) Robison; grandmother: Elouise Cutcher; niece: Saige Robison; nephew: Parker Robison; and a host of family and friends.
