Of Chelsea, Michigan, age 28, passed away Saturday morning, September 18, 2021. He was born July 9, 1993 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the son of David B. & Carolyn S. (Patrick) Wolfe. He is survived by his parents of Chelsea; a brother, Brannon M. Wolfe of Chelsea; a nephew, Hunter L. Wolfe of Jackson, MO; paternal grandmother, Emma Lou Wolfe of Chelsea; many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, David & Nola Patrick; and paternal grandfather, Bobby L. Wolfe.

Nathan attended the Chelsea school district, graduating with the class of 2011. He was a kind and creative person who enjoyed nature, going to music and art festivals, creating tie-dye clothing, and spending time with his family and friends. Those who knew Nathan have lost a shining and beautiful light in their lives. This world is a lesser place without him. Nathan was a loving and loyal friend to everyone he ever met. We will carry him in our hearts forever. He will be missed much more than words can say.


Don’t think of him as gone away, his journeys just begun, life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing that we could know today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched… For nothing loved is ever lost, and he was loved so much.


Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family and mailed to Cole Funeral Chapel, 214 E. Middle St., Chelsea, MI 48118.

Nate I love you. I cannot stop crying I’m so sick of friends dying. You were a bright light who could make me cry when I didn’t want to. You and I really connected over Zach’s death. Give him a hug for me.

Nathan and I were two kids who really loved their grandmas. Nola Patrick and my grandma, Barb Massey, were good friends. Somewhat estranged relations perhaps, though we had a simpatico, and I recognized him as a sensitive and loving person. Very sorry to hear of his passing.

There's been a long time that I've looked at your picture above, but couldn't come up with the right words to write here. I guess I'll leave it at this. I'm gonna miss seeing you, saying hi, and hearing you laugh, every time I see you. With much love, peace brother.

Nate was the first dude to ever say I love you to me. I thought that was pretty weird, but he’d do it every time we parted ways. He wore me down, and now I finally feel okay with telling my friends I love them. Thanks Nate. I love you.

Nate and his brother were our “little buddies” when the kids were all growing up in the neighborhood. They lived to play with my son Matt and enjoyed swimming in our pool. Although I didn’t know him as an adult, I’ll always remember him as a sweet little guy. My condolences to family and friends.

Nathan was my brother from the time I moved into the neighborhood. I can hear his knock on the screen door and him saying, “Hi Marie’s mom.” I can hear the cards in our bike tires as we rode up and down Howard St. and Owen Ct. I can feel the creek water in my feet when I think about the clay structures and fairy gardens we used to make. I can see the disco lights and fog machine in our shed and the box’s we buried Sammy the cat and birds in. We ate spaghetti dinners together and ran back and forth to each other’s house every morning and night. Nathan was the positivity in my life growing up. There was never a time he didn’t support me ❤️

And ps - Nathan, you’re right, I think it was my fault that the dog bit you ;)
