Nathan Ward Memorial Trust For His Children

On December 25th we lost a Father, Marine, Lineman and a great friend to a tragic car accident. Nate leaves behind a 13 year old daughter Alexi and an 11 year old son Brice. Both kids were very active in Gymnastics and Wrestling. We are hoping to raise money for these kids so they never go without. 
Nate was a Marine who served in Iraq. Nate saw a lot of action in Fallijah and lost many friends there. After leaving the Marine Corps Nate became a lineman for Bonneville Power Administration.  Nate had a great work ethic, very personable and always had a smile on his face. 
Nate was a awesome father who was always busy with his kids. He would take them out in the woods 4 wheeling letting the kids take the wheel. He was always at Alexis Gymnastics events and then get Brice to wrestling for his events. Although Nate was always doing something he always had time for hisFamily and Friends. 
Nate will be greatly missed from his Family, Friends and anyone who got to know him. The money raised will go directly to Alexi and Brice on their 18th Birthday
