What can I say about Nate Black?
So, this site is supposed to be fun, and I didn’t want to do this. I will keep it short but I feel like it would be an injustice not to pay tribute to someone who not only was an amazing friend, but is one of the reasons this site exists.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Nate Holder (aka. Nate Black) passed away in Cancun on Monday. As a promoter and creator of Lions Den U, he was basically known by everyone from London Ontario to Toronto.
Nate was such a huge part of helping me start up this blog. He gave me the chance to write for LDU right of school. He gave me opportunities the way he did for everyone he could. His support and encouragement for our whole team has been unwavering. He also was an amazing friend and based on my facebook timeline, everyone felt this way about him.
He lived his life to the fullest, and although he was taken way too young he lived more than most people who pass away much later in life.
So, this post is in honour of Nate. The life of the party, an amazing friend, colleague, and leader. You were loved by so many, and will be remembered so fondly and we cannot believe you left us so young.

Until we meet again
