Nathan Andrew Robertson was born on Feb. 1 st , 1997, in Muscatine, IA to Sara Robertson-Harris and Matt Potter.
Nathan was a highly loved young man. His family and friends were always his first priority, he was more than a big brother to his younger siblings he was more like a father figure to them. His little brother and sisters would always go to him for any help they needed. He loved listening to music, playing on his phone, going to the movies, or just hanging/talking with his friends. He always had a smile on his face whether he had a bad day or not. He was one to worry about how everyone else was doing/ feeling before himself. Nathan was the strongest bravest young man anyone could meet. He was the greatest son a mother/father could ask for!
