Obituary

Nathan Dale Mastin met Jesus face to face on Monday, June 5th, 2017, probably with a fishing pole and hopefully a string of keepers.
Nate was born on February 19, 1979, to Roger Mastin and Karen Worley Mastin, in Odessa, Texas. He spent much of his childhood and teenage years with his grandmother, Mary Worley, whom he loved and adored. Nate graduated from Permian High School and was a Permian Panther through and through. He claimed Friday Night Lights as the all-time best movie, and you didn’t speak unkindly of the MOJO. Nate graduated from ENMU, in Portales, New Mexico where he played football on scholarship. He was a devoted husband to Cohee and an amazing dad to their 4 children: Hunter, Hartlee, Hayes and Hattie Kate. He was the V.P. of Customer and Public Relations for Globe Energy Services. Nate is survived by his wife, Cohee, and 4 children, of the home; his grandmother, Mary Worley, father Roger Mastin and his wife, Mary; brother, Steven Mastin; niece, Madison and nephew, Brody; half-brothers Nakoda and Dakona Mastin; parents-in-law, Steve and Jodie Boyd; brother-in-law, Bobby Boyd; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and many dear friends. Nate was preceded in death by his mother, Karen Mastin.
The chronological facts truly shaped Nathan’s life. He was an amazing young man who was truly filled with the love of Jesus. He lived and loved life to its fullest. He worked hard and played hard. He made it a life time commitment to bless everyone he met. Sometimes you knew he had intentionally blessed you, but many times the receiver never knew who paid for their meal, or who that family was that surprised them at Christmas with an envelope of money they had been saving all year. It was important to him that his children knew the importance of random acts of kindness. If you ever needed a laugh, a kind word, a pep talk, or someone to lean on, Nate was who you wanted.
It’s true that the Lord blesses those who are a blessing to others. Nate’s work took him to fishing tournaments, on hunting trips and the golf course. He was an avid sportsman who loved the outdoors. His job took him away from home a lot during fishing and hunting season, but that was okay, because when he was home, he was 100% husband and daddy. The best husband and daddy! His family had his undivided attention. It was all rough and tumble with the boys. He loved helping coach Hunter’s football teams each season and Hartlee’s favorite times were when her daddy took her on their dates.
Nate had a personality that was bigger than life, and the ability to bring out the best in everyone. We can’t help but wonder how many people he helped become better…better spouses, friends, family, Christians.
We are forever thankful for so many people who helped Nate and his family throughout this unexpected journey: the doctors, nurses, many caregivers, therapists and friends, Globe and its many employees and customers, who were also great friends, have all been amazing.

    Cohee, Hunter, Hartlee, Hayes and Hattie, Your husband/daddy has the best smile that will live on in all of his photos. I’m sure if it was possible he would be asking Jesus for a selfie to send back to you so you know he is well and happy. He waits on the day you will be reunited but in the meantime, he smiles down on you and is so proud of each accomplishment you will make throughout your lives. Never think he doesn’t know what is going on in your lives because he will be there in each breath of wind, snowflake, sunshine and raindrop. His love lives on forever.

    I went to Junior High and High School with Nathan. I played baseball with him when we were young. I threw shot put and discuss with him in the off season. Watching him you could see that whatever he put his hands on he was good at! He could also swim like a fish. I don’t have many memories of school witout him in them. His friendship was special to me, he made life fun. Nathan will forever be missed. And those memories will always be close to my heart. My thoughts and prayers are extended to his dear family.

    I met Nat and Cohee in 2005 at Harvest Christian Fellowship. I am one of the many people they helped become a better husband, friend , brother and follower of Jesus Christ. Nat had such a love for life and his family. Always loved to joke, encourage, challenge, and inspire others to have fun. Many times I witnessed many acts of kindness from the Mastin family to others. They never thought twice to help someone in need. Very greatful to have met Nat and forever will remember him. Cohee we love you so much and will continue to pray for you and the kids

    To the Grater Boyd family,
    Dianna and I send our deepest condolences. Altholugh we never had the opportunity to meet Nathan in person, we have every reason, through knowing the family and on email posts, to believe that he was a great person, husband, and father. Nathan, although being called home will be watching down on the family and always be there in spirit.

    May our Lord ever bless and prosper the the family.
