It is with deep sadness that we inform our friends, colleagues and clients of the passing of one of our practitioners, Drew Nathan, at the age of 32 after a battle with cancer. More than just a member of the team at HHWC, Drew was a friend and a dedicated professional with an incredible passion for health and nutrition, a great sense of humour and a kind heart. He will be sadly missed and our hearts go out to his friends and family.
Here are some thoughts our team shared about Drew:
It has taken me a few days to come to terms with, and get my thoughts together, about the passing of our friend Drew Nathan. It still seems surreal. Drew was a kind, passionate, warm, joyful and brilliant man. A “man” in the truest sense of the word. He was always glowing and had a way of making everyone in the room feel special and noticed. I still don’t know how one does that! The world has truly lost an angel and I know heaven has gained one. You were appreciated and loved Drew; and your teachings will live on through all the people you touched. Miss you…Jocelyne
I did not know Drew, only in passing. But having worked at the front desk for a year, people, clients always called in asking for him or stopped in. Overall they would tell me how amazing of a person he was, a good guy, inspirational and dedicated. everyone has had positive things to say and how he touched their lives…RhondaI would like to express my condolences to his family and close friends at having lost such a great person at such a young age. Drew was so full of life and always eager to help. I loved that he was always thinking outside the box and encouraging people to be better people. I am grateful to have known him, even for a short time. And I am glad that he will finally have peace…Angie
