Garrett and I are thankful for the week we got to spend getting to know Nathan more in Australia. We had first met him through friends at Crossroads, and then while he was a greeter there too. As a friend& groomsman to my brother Will, he not only offered any help or assistance where needed for the wedding, but Nathan’s compassionate heart and serving extended to others in attendance too. He always had a smile to show or hand to give in assistance. We are grieved that he left this earth so soon, but know he’s celebrating in Heaven. We pray for his family’s hearts to be comforted. -the Routh family

From my observations, Nathan was a great young man, good son & brother. He helped my son, Cody immensely when faced with the recent sudden loss of his wife Nicole, Nathan's sister. He and Cody were close. No words could ever express the sorrow I feel for his family ( Troy, Aimee, Natalie & Nicholas) due to their tragic scenario of losing two children/ siblings within a very short span of time. My dearest & deepest condolences. He is now in Heaven with Nicole awaiting us to join them one day.

My heart goes out to the Faison family. I am devastated and heartbroken that you are gone. I have only known you these last few years but you were an amazing person and fantastic friend. Thank you for the time to fly out and be in my wedding. Like your father said to you, "an amazing trip of a lifetime, don't you miss it." This is not goodbye but until we see you again. Rest is peace Nathan.

He was the sweetest boy/man I have ever met. He always had a smile and a hug for me at church and in my yard when he and his crew did a great job getting it in order for me to sell my house, His mon must be very proud to have raised such a giving, caring young man. He will be missed terribly.

My heart hurts for the loss of Nathan in this world but yet I rejoice for him. My wisdom is not infinite. I love my friends. I don't have all the answers. I would choose for him to still be alive because of is Godly character and how much the world NEEDS Godly men in it. My wisdom is only what I've been taught seeing experience and what the Lord shows me in his word. I'm so thankful that the Lord can hug Nathan and love him so much deeply. I will miss him and his genuine love for other people ❤ I am so thankful and blessed to have known him. My prayers are with his family and other friends.

Words can not express how very sorry we at Yorktown Lodge No. 205 for the death of our Masonic brother Nathan Faison. He truly cared about others and had a deep conviction for God and Freemasonry. He loved his brother Masons and would always find time for them even at sacrifice to himself. We know that he is at home with his Lord Jesus Christ and we will all see him again. We are here for you and your family. As Worshipful Master of Yorktown Lodge it is our honor. God bless all of you and you are in our prayers.

Aimee, Troy, Nick, Natalie and family, words cannot begin to describe what you must be going through right now. Lee and I want you to know we are here for you morning, noon and night. We love you and you have a whole community that loves you. I am so thankful that I was able to sit around your picnic table with all of you that beautiful evening this summer. We had the best conversations that evening. It was wonderful to see how those boys have grown up to be fine young men. I think Nick said more words to me that evening than he has his whole life lol. Nathan has one of the kindest souls that I have ever seen (you too Nick). I know Nicole met him at the gates with open arms and welcomed him home. I just wish you could have had more time. You are in our thoughts and prayers continuously.
Huge hugs my friends!
