Nate grew up in Cottonwood Heights and graduated from Brighton High School in 2004. He was a hard worker who studied at Salt Lake Community College and Dixie State University and most recently worked at the new Family Dollar distribution center in St. George. His contagious smile and fun, loving personality helped him easily make friends wherever he went.
Nate enjoyed both playing sports, especially golf with his Dad, brothers and close friends, and watching sports. He was able to see his two favorite teams, the Ravens and the Heat, win championships this year. He also loved traveling to visit his siblings in various parts of the country.
Nate possessed a tender heart and was a compassionate soul who above all cherished his family. In his 27 short years, he touched many hearts. He will be dearly missed.
Nate is survived by his parents, Gary and Glenda Whitney; brothers, Dane (Tara) Whitney and Chris (Lauri) Whitney; sisters, Jodi (Gavin) Young and Mindi (Dan) Wright; and 15 nieces and nephews who all dearly love Uncle Nate.
