In memory of Nathan Smyth

Nathanial Smyth,  our beloved  son, brother,  grandson, (spouse  to beautiful Stephie ),  cousin, and father tragically passed away at the age of 27 on Sunday September 30th shocking his family, friends, and legion of companions  who loved him so much. 

Nathan was a character like no other, a man about town, a passionate story teller.  Nathan lived a life of the brave, few could match his style and his soul. Nathan loved his family, especially his son Austin, the cosmos, the wonders of the world, Halo & Xbox, and above all...he loved food. Like, really, really loved food.

Nathan read between the lines, challenged the norms, and challenged his peers to think big, creatively, and individually.  For a 27 year old from Cambridge - you would have thought he was a wise visionary beyond his years. 

We will never forget that hilarious, ranting, passionate and brilliant man.  As far as we're concerned, Nathan is going for one of his infamous “back in a min” breaks and never coming back. 

We ask you to donate and support his 3 year old son Austin and Austin's beautiful, strong Mother Heather.  Our family and Heather wish that Austin can grow up in a warm and beautiful environment.  No family should ever need to prepare for a tragic event like this.   Anything you can do to help through this time would be greatly appreciated. 

Any funds collected through this campaign will support Austin, his future and Nathan's funeral expenses.  It will be overseen in trust by Danika Smyth, Nathan's sister and Auntie Dan to sweet Austin.
