My thoughts & prayers are with each of you as you cope with your profound loss. Nate is no longer with you, but he also has risen, praise God. Nate clearly left his mark on each of your hearts & he will be reflected in you as long as you each shall live.

I met Nate at Slater Elementary. Together, we moved to Kelley Elementary and onto BHS. He looked out for me and cared about me. The world is sadder without him and his big smile in it. My heart goes out to Amy, the boys and all of his family and close friends. It is clear there were many. I pray that God wraps his arms around them and gives them peace.

As I've read all the FB, Caring Bridge, memory posts I am in awe of
the impact Nate had on all of our lives. This is the testament of one man and the thread he wove through us all. Amy, Nick and Dylan ... The Stupka Clan and The Struther's Clan ... I send love and light in these hours of darkness. I am just one of many who have had the privilege to be able to laugh, cry, argue and thoroughly enjoy Nate Stupka.
I will miss you Big Kahuna ... I look forward to seeing you again.
Till then .... Godspeed
Love and light, Cheryl

My heart goes out to the Stupkas and the Struthers families. Nate always went to bat for me when my chips were down and always had a way to lighten up a dark day. Working for him at Grace Track and then under the H.E. Parts merger had made me realize how important it was to just stick with it. We are all better people for having even known the man. Rest easy Sir.

Tom and I are so saddened by Nate's death. I've known Nate since he and Amy were dating and remember how excited she was for the wedding and for the birth of her boys. Nate, Amy and the boys joined us on our boat on the Mississippi and we had Bing Cherry pit spitting contests that had us all laughing. (The boys won)! Nate was full of love and life and it showed in how Happy Amy was and how kind and loving his boys are. Our hearts are heavy for you but we both count ourselves lucky that we had the privilege of knowing him.
