Nathan was born on a beautiful summer morning at 9:27 a.m. on July 29, 1991, to his parents Bryan and Patty Brooks in San Antonio, Texas. Sixteen years he spent in San Antonio and later moved with his family to the Hill Country in Comal County. He graduated from high school in 2009 with a close group of fellow homeschoolers. After high school graduation, Nathan attended San Antonio College; then in 2013, moved to Corpus Christi, Texas to attend Texas A&M University Corpus Christi and lived there for 3 ½ years before moving back to Bulverde, Texas.
Nathan lived his life with a passion and fascination of art. He could often be found with a guitar at hand, surrounded by some of his closest friends or family. He loved the culinary arts and possessed a deep appreciation for home cooking. There were many quiet evenings spent cooking alongside his mother, sister or girlfriend. Nathan loved the soothing simmer of fresh cooked meals and the sweet aroma of whole ingredients. He loved being amongst God's creation and felt an intimate connection with nature. He loved to photograph the beautiful passing moments of life and the natural splendor of the world. He was gentle, he was kind, but most of all he was compassionate. He was our brother, our son, and grandson – a part of our family, and he was your friend…
