Nathan Charles Bootz, also known as “Bootzee,” was born on May 2, 1991 in Hettinger, North Dakota. His birth completed the Bootz family for his parents, Patrick and Connie. Following in the footsteps of his older siblings Wayne and Melissa, Nathan joined them. On the early morning of July 23, 2022, a vehicle accident that occurred while this loyal servant of the community of Lemmon was driving home from a repair job resulted in the loss of his life.
Nathan’s baptism, confirmation, and wedding all took place in the Catholic Church of St. Mary, where he was a member at the time of their ceremonies. In 2013, he took great pride in bringing home Stephanie Woodley, a kind and devout Catholic girl whom he was certain his parents would adore. The wedding took place on September 14th, 2019. Ryatt Charles, Nathan’s’mini-me’ and his pride and delight, was born to Nathan and Stephanie on June 18, 2020. This was a blessing for both of them.
