Nathan “Nate” Reisdorff of Hanson passed away on January 29th, at the age of 51 from complications of Esophageal cancer. Nate was born in Elk Grove, IL but grew up in Silverthorne and Julesburg, CO, before his family settled in Aurora, Colorado when he was a teenager. After college, Nathan married his college sweetheart, Lora Perkins of Denver, Co and resided in central New Jersey for six years before settling in Massachusetts, where he has been a long-time resident for the past 25 years. Throughout Nate’s and Lora’s time together, they grew to depend on each other which brought them closer together. The strength in their relationship is their dedication to each other and to their beautiful children.
Nate was a loyal employee of New England Law Boston since 1996 where he worked in Information Technology. His dedication to his job and co-workers was unsurpassed, he was always ready to trouble-shoot technology issues and never gave up until any issue was fixed. Nate will be remembered as stead-fast, reliable, patient and hardworking, both at work and at home. Nate was a big movie buff who also loved to read. However, his favorite pastime was to spend time with his family.
