On February 7, 2003, Nathan “Nate” Alexander was born to Eric and Shanon Minns in Lubbock, Texas. Although arriving into this world 2 months early, he quickly developed into a robust baby whose bright smile and belly laughs brought everyone around him joy. Nathan spent his childhood in Pennsylvania and Houston until finally settling back in Lubbock in 2010. He attended school at Roscoe Wilson Elementary, Cooper South Middle School and Lubbock High School. Due to Covid-19, Nate graduated remotely from Texas Tech High School in 2021. Nathan had many interests and activities due to his innate curiosity for learning. This included computers, technology, and theater. He always had a fascination for cars and their mechanics and was currently employed at The Paint Doctor. He enjoyed staying active, he was a member of the Lubbock High Varsity Swim Team and found the gym his place of solace.
Nate dreamt of a future career where he made a huge impact on others and their lives. He had plans to attend school for IT in hopes of joining the Air Force/Space Force. Nate will always be remembered by his friends and family for his kind heart and contagious smile. He will be missed by so many.
