He will be missed by all who knew him.

Besides his parents, Nat is survived by his son, Noah Ernesto Gaduyon of Chesterfield, VA; his sister, Michelle Gaduyon of Suffolk, VA; the mother of his son and friend, Karen Hollowell of Chesterfield, VA; and his devoted friend and service companion, his dog Diesel.
