Nathan J. Beckman
July 27, 1981 - November 5, 2017

Nathan J. Beckman, 36, of Salina, passed away Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017. He was born July 27, 1981, in Hays, to Reginald J. and Kathleen (Jensen) Beckman.

Nathan graduated Norton Community High School in 1999 and later graduated from Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture, Curtis, Neb., with an associate degree in Livestock and Crop Management. As a boy Nathan enjoyed all that farm life had to offer and sports with siblings and classmates. He loved spending time with his family and was a favorite among his nieces and nephews. He loved reciting limericks with a smirk and a laugh and knew every country song on the radio. His passion for life was incomparable, always with a smile and helping hand for everyone he met. He was quick-witted and as kind a person as ever walked the Earth.

Left to mourn his passing are: his mother, Kathleen Beckman; father, Reginald Beckman (Patti), all of Norton; siblings, Bill Beckman (Monica) of Oakley, Chuck Vogelgesang (Cimber) of Colorado Springs, Chad Beckman (Wendy) of Campus, Shauna Blackwill (Terry) of Grainfield, Jennifer Vogelgesang (Ron) of Norton, Dan Vogelgesang of Leander, Texas, and John Beckman (Evette) of Salina; grandmother, Virginia Jensen of Colby; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, C. David Jensen, and Durwood and Thelma Beckman.

A celebration of life will be next summer the weekend of Nathan's birthday.

Memorials may be made to the Nathan Beckman Memorial Fund, in care of John Beckman, 2507 Mitchell Dr, Salina, KS 67401. Ryan Mortuary, Salina, is handling arrangements.
