Nathan Kyle Dobbs, born August 3, 1977, left this earthly body on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, to be united in Heaven with those who went before him: Thomas Deon Dobbs, his father; Keely Dobbs Wright, his sister; Michael Joseph Rutherford, his close friend and cousin; Laverne and Amy Rutherford, Jesse Thomas and Velna (Dee) Dobbs, his grandparents; Letitia Smith, his aunt; Dennis Dobbs, his uncle. The reunion in the presence of Jesus the Christ has to be phenomenal! Left to mourn and miss him is Ashley Drone, the great love of his life, the reason he lived, his gift from God. He also leaves his best friend and little buddy whom he loved as though he were his own, little Nash Escobar, along with sisters, Jacie and Ashton Tuttle. He leaves his mother and stepfather, Brenda and Steve Wood; his brother whom he loved deeply, Jarred Dobbs, as well as his beloved nieces, Kate and Ava Wright. He will be greatly missed by his aunts and uncles and cousins and friends. Nate had a huge heart with a smile and hello or a helping hand for everyone. He was a hard worker wherever he worked. He was full of fun and laughter and silly exploits. His great delight was in making others smile, bringing some joy and positivity and sunshine to their day, despite his struggles. His desire was to become a man who could find his way to walk daily with the Jesus who gave him hope; to become a man that could make his family happy and complete; to become better than he had ever been in his struggles and fight against addiction; to let all his awesome love and goodness shine as brightly as God had always planned for him. He was sunshine; meant to light up the world. Visitation for Nate will be held on Tuesday, February 21st from 11 a.m. until service time at 1 p.m. at the Shawneetown First Baptist Church. Pastor Howard Stearns will officiate the service with burial at Leamington Cemetery near Junction. To honor Nate, in lieu of flowers, there is a Nash Autism Fund account at Legence Bank, P. O. Box 279, Shawneetown, 62984. Vickery Funeral Home in Shawneetown is in charge of the arrangements.
