Obituary Notice

Nathan Ray Childers, age 61, of Sterling, Michigan passed away unexpectedly Friday, January 8, 2021 at his home.



Nathan was born April 4, 1959 in Au Gres, Michigan to the late Nathan and Lena Hazel (James) Childers. He attended and graduated Au Gres Sims, class of 1978 and then served for 10 years in the Michigan National Guard. He was an active member of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. Nathan was a wild and crazy guy when he was younger, wasn’t afraid to speak his mind when it came to certain things, a very funny outgoing man who was willing to help anyone out if needed. The most important thing to him was his family, he loved spoiling his kids and grandson. When he wasn’t found at home spending time with family and friends, Nathan enjoyed walking through the woods and looking at nature with his adoring wife Kimberly at their cabin up north. HE had a personality of gold and will be missed by all who loved him.



Nathan is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Kimberly Jo (Tekson) Childers; children, Billie Jo Herrick, Cameron Herrick and Samantha Childers; brothers, Randy James and Michael Childers; sisters, Jean Farrow, Shirley Houle, Jackie Deverichs, Joyce Moore and Donna Moore; grandson, Bentley and granddaughter due in March, Addalynn; numerous nieces, nephews, and friends all of whom will miss him dearly.
