Nathan Scott Lee

Nathan was born in Kent, Washington.  His family’s last move was to Richland, Washington in 1982 when he was ten years old.

He attended Marcus Whitman elementary, Carmichael junior high and graduated from Richland High school in 1990.

Nathan was a good athlete and excelled in soccer and golf.  He spent all his spare time as a youth at Sham Na Pum golf course in Richland.  He teamed up with Bill Howard there and they became lifetime best friends.  They both qualified for the high school state golf tournament two years in a row.  One of the highlights of his life was attending the coveted Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia in 2023.

Nathan was kind and generous to everyone who he met.  He was able to make every person in front of him feel like they were the most important one in the room.  He was interested in people and genuinely cared about what they had to say.  He was an involved and active listener.

Nathan is survived by his parents Duane and Eva Lee, his sister Tania Bates and sister Tiffany Kile.

He is survived by his nephews Garrett Bates (and his daughter Sophia Bates) and Easton Bates (and his wife Lena).  Also, several aunts, uncles and cousins (especially Lori Bridges – soul mates since birth).

He is also survived by his two sons, Tristan and Max.

Nathan earned an associate’s degree from Columbia Basin College and attended Washington State University.  He worked on building houses in Pullman for tuition money and that is where he developed his love for that trade.  He quit school and started his own construction company – NSL Inc.

He followed his former boss to Easton, MD and had a successful business building and remodeling homes.  His business grew as his reputation for perfection in his work spread.

Nathan fell from a scaffold and broke several ribs, broke his back and shattered his ankle.  He never recovered his health after his accident.  He was in pain 24/7 for the last seven years of his life.  He hardly slept because of the pain but continued working as long as he could manage.  Constant pain, lack of sleep and lack of quality medical care finally combined to just wear his body down to where it just could not function, and his spirit departed his body.

Nathan accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and he will be spending eternity with him in heaven.  We miss him every day, but we know that he is happy.  Free from all pain and stress. He always felt closest to God when he was outdoors in a beautiful place and was in the utmost awe at what his heavenly father had created.

A celebration of life will be held at Einan’s Event Center located at Sunset Gardens in Richland, Washington.  The service will be held on June 15th, 2024.  It will start at 1:00 and be followed by a light reception.

  • Nathan was the the kindest and most considerate person you could ever know. His family lived next door to us when he was growing up. He always had a smile and a laugh that brighten your day. He was an amazing carpenter when he started this trade and he put in a Pella sliding sliding door in our bedroom that we have to this day that works perfectly. He was definitely a perfectionist. He will always hold a special place in my heart.
