Nathan Fields was born in Yokum, Texas in July 1936. In his youth, Nathan was a member and baptized at Sledge Chapel in Kyle, Texas. He attended school in Kyle. He then went on to have a career as a truck driver where he drove all over the United States. After truck driving, he went on to start his own business in lawn care and auto mechanics until he retired. Many of Nathan’s friends and family knew Nathan from the lawn care services he provided, the mechanic services he offered or seeing him around town collecting cans and scrap metal. Nathan met his spouse, Julia in 1988, and they started dating soon afterwards. Nathan and Julia welcomed their first child together, Jalesa Lucille Lott, in August of 1989. Nathan and Julia were married in 1998 in San Marcos by Pastor Franklin. Nathan was a gentle soul, who never minded helping someone in need. Nathan was a very strong-willed, driven, and independent man. He loved staying busy whether it be around the house fixing things (in his own way) or working outside in the yard. He was the type of man who went outside to work as soon as the sun started shining, and normally didn't come in until it was dark and time for bed. Nathan loved his sports. His favorite teams were the Dallas Cowboys in football and the Texas Rangers in baseball. You could catch him anytime a game was on directly in front of the TV or outside working on a car listening to the game on the radio, catching all of the highlights. Nathan has always been known as a strong man to his friends and family and has always been known as a survivor. Nathan was a prostate cancer survivor and was active in life until his passing.

Family and friends are asked to join us from 2pm-4pm to share memories of love and joy for Mr. Nathan Fields. Masks are required to attend the service.
