My name is Lacey Foster. With a heavy heart I am asking for donations during the grieving of Nathan Valencia to help his family with medical and funeral expenses.
Nathan Tyler Valencia was someone who made an impact on anyone he met.
Nathan had a smile that lit up every room he walked into. I was lucky enough to cross paths with Nathan and share what felt like a lifetime of love and laughter. The love we shared was like no other. Nathan was the kind of person who put others before himself. Anyone who knows him could see how much he cared and loved for his family, friends, and myself. I was truly my best and happiest self when I was with him. The impact he made on not only my life, but everyone else's is unmatched. He taught me love, strength, loyalty, and genuine happiness. There is nothing he wouldn't do for me and there's nothing I wouldn't do for him. Nathan was never not smiling. Whether he was out with friends, at a festival, at the gym, or playing video games there was always a smile on his face that radiated throughout the room. Not only was Nathan a large part of my life, he was a son, brother, and friend to many. Nathan was actively a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at UNLV. He had so much love for his chapter and valued the genuine connections he was able to make.
Nathan passed away on November 23rd at the young age of 20. Although Nathan is not here with us physically, his spirit will forever live on through everyone that knows him. Nathan was taken from us too soon, but I know we have gained the best guardian angel. May Nathan rest in peace and may his family and his loved ones find love and comfort in these difficult times.
