coulterFrederick “Nathan” Coulter, 24, of Punxsutawney, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 23, 2015, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa.

Nathan was born on Sept. 13, 1990, in Punxsutawney, a son of Frederick Paul and Kathryn Louise (Rodgers) Coulter. Nathan’s parents survive him.

Nathan was unmarried and a 2013 graduate of The Pennsylvania State University College of Engineering, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

Nathan excelled in his field of study and was a promising engineer employed immediately following graduation from Penn State by the PMG Corporation of Phillipsburg, Pa. Besides a love for mechanics and engineering, Nathan enjoyed robotics, guns and tinkering with gadgets. He had a unique ability to problem-solve and “figure out” how things worked.

Simply put, Nathan was a “nice guy” with a “million dollar” smile who always accentuated the positive in everyone he encountered and in everything he did. His upbeat personality and optimism was contagious and infected everyone he came in contact with. A fun-loving, congenial young man, he filled the air with smiles and laughter.

Nathan loved life and enjoyed his family, friends and meeting new people. He was what most people endeavor for in life – peace and happiness.

In addition to his loving parents, Frederick and Kathryn, Nathan is survived by two brothers, William “Bill” James Coulter and wife Erin of Long Beach, California, and Douglas Paul Coulter of Koyuk, Alaska; and his maternal grandparents, James Alvin Rodgers and Lois Etha Rodgers.
