Funeral Services honoring the life of Nathaniel will be at 3 PM Saturday, June 5 in The Heritage Chapel of Ripley Funeral Home. Bro. Warren Harrell will officiate and Personal Remarks will be given by Bro. John Adams. Burial will follow in Tiplersville Cemetery.
Nathaniel was born December 6, 1976 in Ripley, the son of the late Danny William and Sue Carter Brown. He was a 1995 graduate of Walnut High School where he excelled with the Walnut Wildcats football team as the #73 lineman.
Previously employed with Ashley Furniture Company for 14 years, Nathaniel was currently employed with Resourceful Enviroment Service in Ripley and studying to receive his CDL license so he could "drive the garbage truck".
A member of Faith Fellowship Church, Nathaniel's love of God, deep faith, unselfish nature and giving heart were a true testament to those who knew and loved him. An avid Ole Miss fan, he was devoted to the family he adored, especially his "many" girls. His life's impact was best measured by the countless people whose lives he touched with his fun wit, gentle spirit, infectious laugh and genuine smile .
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
