Nathaniel Brently Lee Sanders, known fondly as Nathan, was born on the 13th of July, 1991 in Amarillo, Texas. He was a beacon of light in this world, a generous, loving, compassionate, and supportive soul whose memory will forever be etched in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him. Nathaniel was a man of unending kindness, a trait that was evident in his dedication to his family, friends, and even those he barely knew. As it is aptly put by the author of humanity, “Kindness is the greatest wisdom.” This was the mantra by which Nathaniel lived.
Nathaniel was a talented Lube Tech in the world of commercial rigs. His artistry and precision were well regarded in the industry, but his passions reached far beyond his occupation. He found joy in simple pleasures such as drawing, fishing, swimming, and raving. His spirit was ever youthful, a trait that made him the beloved playmate of many a child in his family. He was their favorite fishing instructor, their tireless playmate, and their adored uncle. However, Nathaniel was not just a fun-loving man; he was a pillar of strength and support for his family and friends, always there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on.
His life’s journey took him from Texas to Colorado and back. However, the most important journey for Nathaniel was the one he embarked on when he married his soulmate, Rebecca Venable, on the 18th of June, 2015. Their love story is one of deep affection, mutual respect, and shared dreams.
Nathaniel is survived by his loving wife, Rebecca, his parents, Darren (Melissa) Sanders, his brother Micheal Camouse, sister Sharlie Roten, mother-in-law Kelle Venable, sister-in-law Cierra Venable, and brother-in-law Braxton Kindrick.
He joins his mother, Brenda Money, and his grandmother, Ramona Decker, in the life beyond.
As we mourn the departure of Nathaniel from this world, we also celebrate the beautiful life he lived. His generous spirit, loving heart, compassionate soul, and supportive nature have left an indelible mark on all who knew him. We invite you to share your memories and photos of Nathaniel on his memorial page. Let us remember him as he was, full of life, love, and laughter. He may not be physically present, but his spirit lives on in the hearts of those he touched. As we grieve, let us remember that, in the words of Maya Angelou, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Nathaniel made us all feel loved, and that is a memory we will hold dear forever.
A Celebration of Nathaniel’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m., July 24, 2023, at Eastridge Baptist Church, 1300 Evergreen Street, Amarillo, Texas.
