By on April 11, 2018

Nathan Bertozzi Lausch, 44, of Mount Pleasant, S.C., was called home by his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Feb. 8, 2018, after a year of battling melanoma.

The son of H. Nevin and Angelina Bertozzi Lausch, Nathan was born on Feb. 5, 1974 in Ephrata. He grew up on Windy Hollow Farm, Windy Mansion Road, Denver.

He graduated from Lancaster Christian School in 1992, and received a BA degree in 1996 from The Citadel Military College, Charleston, S.C. Following graduation, Nathan moved to Indianapolis, Ind. where he worked in construction, and after moving to Chicago, served two years with Inner City Impact. Since 2012, he was employed by Gulfstream Aerospace as a supplier development and improvement supervisor. Nathan greatly enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and internationally, both Europe and the Middle East, as part of his work assignments.

A kind, caring, intelligent man, Nathan had a wonderful sense of humor and a contagious laugh. He loved outdoor activities, and following in the footsteps of his father and paternal grandfather, enjoyed hunting. Among his many and varied hobbies were photography and cooking; and he developed a keen interest in genealogy, especially that of his Lausch family, whose ancestor, Heinrich Lausch, emigrated to Lancaster County in the 1700s.

Beside his parents, who reside in Cicero, Ind.; Nathan is survived by his brother H. Stephen and sister-in-law Andrea Lausch of Westfield, Ind.; his sister: Erin and brother-in-law Stéphane Renault De Haas of Tremoli, Italy; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Nathen was an adored and doting uncle to Matthew and Noah Lausch and Philoméne, Gwendolyn and Tobias Renault De Haas.

Nate, as he was known to family and friends, will be dearly missed by all.

He was predeceased by his grandparents: H. Martin and Naomi Lausch of Ephrata; and Walter and Catherina Bertozzi of Denver.

A memorial service for Nathan was held in the Summerall Chapel at The Citadel Military College on March 9 for friends in the Charleston, S.C. and Savannah, Ga. areas. The family will have a private burial service at a later date.
