Nathaniel John Gunderson, 24, finished his race on December 17, 2020, having lived with brain cancer for 6 years. He lived with courage and faith, far beyond the medical expectations he had been given. He recently completed the Professional Golf Management program at Ferris University, graduating Cum Laude. He loved sports, especially golf, and took great satisfaction teaching others the game. More than that he enjoyed friends and family and all the little things that make up life. Knowing his days were likely going to be short, he made sure he was right with God, and then lived without stopping. He often expressed that he had a great life and was very thankful. He wanted more here, but now is finding out what else God has for him.
He was preceded in death by his brothers Benjamin and Matthew. He is survived by his grandparents Lester and Carolyn Fawley; parents Tim and Lynn Gunderson; sisters Rachel and Faith; and an extended family and friends that he loved deeply. A private celebration of life will be held for family, and a public celebration will be announced at a later date. There will also be a video tribute posted at a later date. Memorial contributions may be directed to United Christian Services, 600 East Michigan Ave, Suite 1, Paw Paw, Michigan, 49079.
