   02-13-2013 - Nathan Davidson Obituary
Nate Davidson passed away a couple days. He's been one of my best friends since middle school. His obituary only gave a little insight as to who he was. So I decided to post my own obituary on my blog. Nathan was shy when I met him. He would whiper in my ear as kids all the things he thought was funny. And yes they were very funny. I remember showing him my 300 baud modem. Days later he had bought a modem and knew much more then I did. His Amiga was so much better then my commodore 64. We would go to his house after school (no parents), but then would go to my house after his parents got home. I remember we both painted our motorcycles with the same forest green paint. We both made the mistake of touching the paint with our finger before it dried. Thus the eternal finger print on the bottom of both gas tanks. After high school we took the gray hound to Oklahoma to see Josh. $68 round trip. Riding that bus was the most exciting trip I've ever had. 20 years later we still laughed about the "boom boom boom. Me and Wyatt Earp" story. Nathan was the first to learn how to progam computers. It was because of him answering my programming questions that I was able to learn to program myself. We built TV jammers in high school. I remember him using his at my parents house after I'd already been busted. I still can see him laughing at the bottom of the stairs and my mom yelling downstairs "West! Knock it off". Before online games were LAN games. We played countless hours of Warcraft 2, Starcraft and Age of Empires. He was a very good competitor. When I was 23 I was in a really bad car accident. Near Death. He was one of the first people to show up to the hospital. I'm still laughing over him setting Chris's browser homepage to www.gay.com when he wasn't looking. I was glad to see him end up marrying Kim. She did a really good job of taking care of him, especially in his last days. The only regret I have is that we never took the motorcycle trip to the abandoned mining town at the top of some mountain that he had found out about. I think Chris and I will complete the trip, but it won't be the same without Nate. Today is a sad day for the world to lose such a great man. Farewell old friend.
