Nathan Michael Kuschel Obituary
NATHAN MICHAEL KUSCHEL Age 31, passed away on September 10, 2015. Nathan joined the Marines when he was twenty, and like all Marines, he proclaimed the motto "Semper Fidelis." But Nathan had already been living that motto since he was a child. He was always faithful to his sisters, driving for hours to provide a shoulder to cry on. He was always faithful to his brothers, giving his brother gear to make it home safely when they served together in Iraq. And he was always faithful to his parents, bringing joy and laughter to the dinner table and their lives. Our family takes comfort in knowing that God too is always faithful. When Nathan was a child, he and his family went to the Wild Animal Park. At some point, we said to ourselves, "Where's Nathan?" We looked around and saw him at the bottom of a pond. We grabbed him out by his hair and asked if he was o.k. Nathan calmly replied, "I was just waiting for you to come save me." On September 10, while Nathan was surrounded by his family, Jesus came and brought him to Heaven. We look forward to the day when we will see his smile, hear his laugh, and be with him again. Although the third born, Nathan was the first to ride a bike, climb a tree, and do anything else daring. And he is the first to leap from his life on Earth into the arms of God. Nathan is a graduate of St. Paul's Lutheran High School in Concordia, Missouri. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 2004-2012. He is survived by his mother, Christine Small (n‚e Rodewald); father, Steven Kuschel; stepfather, Thomas Small; brothers, Jesse Kuschel (Angela) and Noah Kuschel; sister, Erica Irelan (Joseph); and stepsister, Julie Niedens (Dennis). A memorial service will be held on October 3 at Christ Lutheran Church in La Mesa, California, at 2:00 p.m.
