Nathaniel James Himes

Humble, Simple Man, Loved Fiercely

Rest in Eternal Peace, Nathaniel James Himes, 27. Nathan was born July 21, 1991 in Charlotte, NC, and entered the arms of Jesus just shy of his 28th birthday, on July 19, 2019. The twinkle in his eyes shined bright during his short life and left us with memories of a free spirited soul, a simple, polite, and humble man who was a loyal friend who loved deeply.

Nathan loved motocross, the outdoors, country music, old rock and roll, playing the guitar, and fishing. He had an inquisitive nature for how things worked and took things apart to help figure them out. We called him Nate-man, he lived large and could be the most resourceful and tenacious person in the room.

Nathan fiercely loved his brother, Adam, and longed to make him proud. He encouraged him to get good grades, treat people with respect, and to be a gentleman. Nate loved to work hard and was a man of few words.

Loved by many, Nathan is survived by his Grandmother Chris Jayne, his parents, Jeffrey Himes, Tracy Himes and Pamela Eggert, his "surrogate" parents Aunt Patty and Uncle Jay, his brother Adam Himes, several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Nate's legacy will be honored at a "Celebration of Life" on August 3, 2019. He will be laid to rest among family at The Church of the Resurrection in Greenwood, SC.
