Nathan Dou­glas Cantrell, 32, of Spring­dale, Ark., passed away from neu­roen­docrine pan­cre­atic can­cer on

Oct. 5, 2018, nearly six years af­ter the doc­tors gave him six months to live.

He was born on Sept. 19, 1986, in Lit­tle Rock, Ark., to Dana (Worm­ing­ton) Creek and C. Dou­glas Cantrell. He grad­u­ated from West Fork High School and grad­u­ated with a Bach­e­lor of Arts in His­tory from the Univer­sity of Arkansas.

He was a de­voted fa­ther and hus­band. He met the love of his life Elisha at the age of 14. They tied the knot on April 19, 2017, in Lit­tle Rock. Asher was born to the happy cou­ple on March 17, 2017. Be­com­ing a fa­ther was Nathan’s proud­est mo­ment.

He was an avid out­doors­man from an early age and above all loved to fish. Even af­ter his di­ag­no­sis, Nathan hardly slowed down and would take any­one who was will­ing, head­long into ad­ven­ture. He was also a half-de­cent wood­worker, en­joyed shoot­ing and edit­ing mu­sic videos. He will be sorely missed and fondly re­mem­bered.

He was pre­ceded in death by his grand­par­ents, Henry and Mary Jane Cantrell, Lorena Worm­ing­ton, Ray­burn Worm­ing­ton, and Bob Creek; and un­cle, Dave Wil­son.

He is sur­vived by his wife, Elisha Taldo-Cantrell and a son, Asher Wal­lace Cantrell, both of the home; fa­ther, C. Dou­glas Cantrell of West Fork; mother, Dana Creek and step­fa­ther Dave Creek of Spring­dale; sis­ters, Madi­son Cantrell of West Fork and Ash­ley Creek (Mickey) of San Fran­cisco, Calif.; brother, Aaron Creek (Anna) of Panama City Beach, Fla.; grand­moth­ers, Kathy Worm­ing­ton of Purdy, Mo., and Mary Hope Creek of Spring­dale; fa­ther-in-law, Cur­tis Taldo of Spring­dale; moth­erin-law, Kim Taldo of Spring­dale; sis­ters-in-law, Emarie Taldo of Spring­dale and Er­ica Taldo-Phillips (Jonathan) of Spring­dale; along with aunts, un­cles, nu­mer­ous cousins, other fam­ily and long-time friends.

A cel­e­bra­tion of life will be held at 3 p.m. on Oct. 27, 2018, at the Arkansas Air & Mil­i­tary Mu­seum, 4290 S. School Ave., Fayet­teville, AR 72701.
