In Nate’s spare time, he enjoyed talking trash! And a bunch of it too. He was extremely charismatic and made sure to make you laugh. But he took priority in doing what he loved most; and that was spending time with his family, ESPECIALLY his grandchildren.
Nate was a dotting father, grandfather, and great grandfather. When you visited him, you always left with something extra; extra money, candy or wisdom. Sometimes, all three! He stood firmly on one principle he affectionately called “The (3) P’s of Life: Prepare, Provide, Protect!”
Nate Was preceded in death by his Parents; Francis and Nathaniel Choice Sr, Daughters Jacqueline and Lanetta, Son; Nathaniel, Grandson; Quron and Brothers; Gregory, Dorian and Denard.
