Nate was born Dec. 4, 1983 in Waverly, the son of Michael Robert and Aleecia M. (McGuire) Schmidt. Nate received his education at Santa Fe High School in Alma, and graduated with the class of 2002. He married his true love and best friend, Kasey Ann Beougher, on Oct. 3, 2016, at Sioux Falls, S.D.
Nate had followed in his dadís footsteps, and had been a pipeline laborer for the last 10 years, most recently for Michels. His family traveled wherever jobs took them, which was sometimes quite an adventure. Whenever sports were on television, or better yet, to go to a game, you could bet Nate would be cheering on his favorite teams, the Santa Fe Chiefs, the K.C. Royals, and the K.C. Chiefs, to name a few. He enjoyed being outdoors. As a matter of fact he loved it, going hunting, camping, and just spending time with his family and friends. Nate had also become quite comfortable at the barbeque grill. He had a great sense of humor, was extremely ornery, quite the flirt, and never knew a stranger. Nate loved life and lived it to the fullest. When he entered a room, his ice blue eyes, his smile and outgoing personality made everyone feel comfortable and like they had known him for years. When his son was born and he became a dad, it was truly the most spectacular moment of his life; to hold him, kiss him, and love him unconditionally. He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Carrollton, and a member of Michigan Laborers Union #1098.
At the time of Nateís death, his familyís hearts were heavy with sorrow, but one thing they knew for certain; they wanted Nate to be a life donor and help save others lives. Although they had lost their precious loved one, it would allow others to continue living, something Nate would have wanted.
Nate was a loving father and a good husband who leaves his family to mourn his loss. Survivors include his beloved wife Kasey Ann Schmidt, of the home; his precious 10 month-old son, Dalton Michael Schmidt; his loving parents, Mike and Aleecia Schmidt, of Malta Bend; his wonderful brother, Nichalos Lee Schmidt, of Malta Bend; caring grandmothers, Mary Jane McGuire, of Malta Bend, and Carolyn Crawford, of Marshall; aunt, Judy Petzoldt and husband Mark, of Marshall; and uncle, David Schmidt, and wife Cassie, of Lees Summit; as well as cousins and many friends.
