On Monday, March 13, 2023, our beloved Nathan Mark Schab left this world. Born December 16, 1994, he was a precious addition to his family. He was boisterous and witty with them but shy with others growing up. Nathan (“Nate”) graduated from Jordan High School in 2013. His reputation for being smart, clever, and a brilliant debater lingered on. Nate’s younger brother recalled comments from some of Nate’s teachers about how smart and hard headed his older brother was.
Anyone who knew Nate would agree that he was too smart for his own good. He read numerous collegiate level books. He had a thirst for knowledge, and his quick wit matched everything he absorbed through literature and cultural information. Nate’s perseverance and hard work paved the way for his personal success. Employed by BD Medical, he earned promotions leading up to Lead Mechanic.
One of Nate’s wonderful traits was his humor, colored with the sarcasm and educated wit that only he could deliver in conversation. He enjoyed visiting with his nieces, and nephew, taking picture after picture of them, and making them giggle with his talent for talk.
Nate had a thick outer shell and did not make deep connections easily. Only his loving partner, Reanna, held the key of reaching through the tough exterior to find his soft and vulnerable side. He and Reanna created a wonderful life and worked together to raise Reanna’s beautiful son, Mikey, whom Nate loved as his own. They later welcomed their own son Benjamin Mark Schab into their close family unit.
Nate is survived by his parents, Mark H. Schab, and Janalyn Larsen-Schab; his sister, Janyssa Lynne Schab; brother, Michael H. Schab; son, Benjamin Mark Schab; his life partner, Reanna Jones; and bonus son, Mikey.
A celebration of Nate’s life will be held between 1p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, 2023 at 9824 S. Flint Drive, Sandy, UT. 84094. Nate’s favorite foods will be served, and memorabilia will be displayed to honor this amazing young man.
In Lieu of flowers a fundraiser has been set up for the immediate needs of the sweet little family Nate left behind: https://gofund.me/4e440e96
