In memoriam: Nathan Wolff Fanz

February 22, 1995 May 28, 2013

We suffered an unexpected and tragic loss of our son, Nathan Fanz. He is deeply missed by his surviving family, parents Mary and Scott, brothers Dietrich and Jesse, sisters Isabella and Eva and grandparents Joyce McConnell and Herbert and Betty Fanz.

Nathan enjoyed science even at a young age and seemed to possess a greater desire and knowledge of the things he was interested in. He was fascinated with bugs and gemstones and could readily rattle off many facts. He also was very interested in collections of these things. He always had a net in his hand to catch bugs so he could keep them for his collection.

He also loved to go to the ocean with his grandparents and the rest of our family, and seemed to spend the most time in the water riding waves. He loved to camp, and even got into baking desserts. He was a cheesecake baker and actually got quite good at it.

He played baseball, basketball and soccer during his younger years. He seemed to put sports to the side so he could more fully concentrate on his academics. He was a tireless worker when it came to studying, always stating that he needed more time. His grades really blossomed and he became highly successful with them. He also had a vision to perhaps go to the U.S. Naval Academy, so he took up fencing, chess and did much community service. We were impressed with his long-term plan for success and the effort he was putting forth to get there.

His untimely death took us all by surprise. He was a junior in high school and most recently was at Milton High School. He enjoyed his Milton High School experience, looked to be on a solid path for the future and so we are both shocked and missing him.

A memorial service will be held on June 8, 2013 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the American Legion, 201 Wills Rd., Alpharetta, Ga. 30004.

    I am friends with Jesse, and I'm a rising junior at Milton high school. It's so unfortunate what happened. Nathan will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you all.
