Nathaniel David Oehlke died January 28, 2014 in Divide, Colorado as the result of a traffic accident.

Nate was born on March 28, 1990 in New Richmond, Wisconsin.

Nate was a kind, fun loving young man with a heart of gold. He moved from Wisconsin to Divide, Colorado in 2005. He is not easily forgotten by his friends and acquaintances. After high school, Nate worked as a cook in various Cripple Creek casinos. Nate loved snowboarding and hanging out with his many friends. We will miss him dearly.
