Obituary for Nathan Ivory

September 16, 1987 - September 8, 2017
Morristown, Tennessee | Age 29


Nathan Oliver Ivory, 29 left this world too soon on Friday, September 8, 2017. Born on Fort Belvoir, VA on Sept. 16, 1987 Nathan was the cherished son of William and Christine Ivory. Besides his parents, Nathan leaves behind two loving brothers, Jeremy and Timothy. Nathan is also survived by his grandparents David and Angela Adams, and Rosa Ivory, aunts Gudrun and Cathy, and uncles Jim and John.
Growing up in various places because of his father's military career, Nathan was a well traveled student. Nathan attended schools in Iwakuni, Japan, Mechanicsburg, PA, Havelock, NC, and Chalfont, PA. Because of his extensive travels and exposure to other cultures, Nathan had been a very interesting companion to his friends across the United States and the globe.
Nathan will be remembered most for his paleontological interests. He was an avid fossil hunter on the beaches of Maryland to Florida. The perfect mixture of physical activity and academic research, his hobby helped him reach out to others. He loved nothing more than sharing his passion and his finds with school children during hunting expeditions and museum trips. Many hours of neglected yard work can be attributed to Nathan stealing his father away for yet another hunting trip to some forsaken corner in a phosphate mine or swamp.
Nathan was a cat enthusiast and animal lover. He couldn't pass by an abandoned kitten; our household is currently graced by five cats which called Nathan daddy. All his family and friends have wonderful and meaningful memories of Nathan. He will be greatly missed, and always remembered.
