Nathan Lawrence Cook, 17, unexpectedly passed away on April 22, 2022. Nate came into the world on April 21, 2005, just how he lived it: brimming with energy and larger than life. (As the family always joked, his mom’s bump was big enough for 2!) Since the beginning, his smile was contagious and his laugh…

Nathan was my buddy in 4th period art class with Ms. Stiles. He was my only table mate, he always kept me company and made me laugh. It was very difficult finding out what had happened. It was definitely a very sad day for me and many others I am sure. I wish Nathan’s family the best for the times ahead.

Sara, Ben, and Makayla - I am so very sorry. There are no words. My heart goes out to you and everyone touched by this loss. I never knew Nate well but he could be counted on to be full of energy, enthusiasm, and that amazing smile. Jeremy could never keep up with him on sleepovers and we learned that he’d need a day to recover afterward! I don’t think there was any sleeping! Sara I remember how nervous you were the first time he stayed over here. He was polite and everything went well, and when I told you that, you assured me you’d put the fear of God in him to behave! He was such a good friend to Jeremy. He will always be remembered and loved.

I can not put into words the admiration I had for Nate. He noticed things other children didn’t and he was brave enough to do something about it. I’ll always remember you as the boy who shared a chair rather than leaving someone out. The boy who ran fast but went back and encouraged others to finish. The boy with the big heart and the beautiful soul. You will be forever in my heart.

My condolences to all friends and family. I had the privilege of student teaching in Nate’s 7th grade English class. He was in my first period section. I could always rely on Nate to get the class laughing, even on Monday mornings. When I returned to the school later as a long-term substitute, Nate always had a smile and a friendly greeting to offer. He will be missed. My prayers go out to his family and friends through this difficult time. Miss Frisbie

I attend my grandson Aiden’s track and cross country meets. One of the highlights of this attendance was to find Nate and share a comment with him . We looked forward to conversing with Nate because he was so respectful , funny , and positive. If it was possible to transfer Nate’s smile to everyone in this world who was arguing or engaging in vitriol, the world would be steeped in everlasting peace. He was a gem. We will miss him and his persona... Rest In Peace Nate and keep Smiling. Sally and Jerry Loy

Nathan was such a good kid. Going through school with him for the past 10 years was amazing and he brought joy to the people around him. I didn’t know him well personally but I remember moments where people were down and he just brought their happiness right back up. He will be missed greatly and we will continue to honor and cherish his life and all the happy memories he had created with people.

Sending love to all that he loved and cared for in his years upon this earth. May his love embrace them. May memories comfort the hurts. May peace be with him and those living forward with his spirit. ❤️

The first time I met Nate, I think he was probably 10 or 11. I had been invited over by Makayla for the first time. I don't remember quite what led to this conversation, but I believe he ultimately told me I had "a face full of hate and no expression," with this little mischevious grin on his face that instantly made me like him. That's quite something to say to someone you've just met, but that daring, goofy, over-the-top side of him was just the kind of thing that made him so memorable and special from the get-go. I feel like so many people are sort of "background characters" in our lives; I have had friends whose siblings I probably couldn't even name or picture. But that's not how Nate EVER was. From our first interaction onward, he had such an edgy, sarcastic, FUNNY sense of humor that made him always stick out to me. We were never really personal friends, but I saw him quite a few times when hanging out with Makayla over the years, and he always just seemed so clever to me, like he was always up to something. Some time after Nate and I met, Makayla had gathered a few friends in her basement for a get-together, and Nate had come down and was cracking jokes and picking on the group in his usual fashion. A couple of us had playfully chased him out the door into the backyard and locked it behind him, thinking it was all in good fun. After several minutes with no response from him, we reopened the door to find him still pacing silently there. He stormed back in immediately, genuinely upset, and ran upstairs to stay away from us. I can remember how surprised and truly sad I was that he was scared and upset by being locked out; by the time we unlocked the door I had thought he would've already come in through the front door and planned out a plot for revenge that was equal parts sophisticated and amusing. I think I was always so impressed with his witty, sarcastic humor and mischevious demeanor that I forgot in that moment that he was really just a kid like the rest of us, with every right to be angry and afraid. I am sharing this not as a bad or sad memory, but as one of several experiences that highlighted for me just how intense, real, and multifaceted Nate could be. I have always felt so bad about that moment, though, and I wondered if Nate would hold on to that memory, too, and resent me and/or Makayla's other friends. But he thankfully seemed quick to forgive, and was always game, in the years following, to join us in the pool, kick our butts at a game of cup pong, darts, or whatever the game of the day was, or to just hang out with us. I had just a handful of casual interactions like these with Nate, and I just can't seem to wrap my mind around losing him. My heart hurts in a way that I have never felt before just to think about it. I cannot not even come close to begining to imagine what it is to have lost someone this special when you raised him, or grew up with him, or really got to watch him grow. My heart and my prayers go out to the entire Cook family and friends, and anyone who was blessed to get a glimpse of just how cool Nate was. ❤ Rest in peace Nathan Cook. You will be forever loved and forever missed by more people than you could possibly have ever known. ❤
