Nathan is survived by his parents, Tim and Jackie Carty (Lenoir City); brothers: Josh Carty (wife Savannah; children Jubilee, Miriam, & Douglas, Gainesboro, TN), Luke Carty (wife Amy Ruth, Cookeville), Caleb Carty (wife Aubrey; children Heidi & Luella, Cookeville), Micah Carty (fiancé Sammy Smith), and John Carty; sister: Amy Elizabeth; “Florida brother”: Alex Hessler (St. Petersburg); grandmothers: Phyllis Chaffin (Bluff City) and Bobbie Jo Carty (Bristol); aunts and uncles: Robert and Cheryl White (Bluff City), Doug and Sherry Lewis (Bluff City), and Dan Carty (Bristol); cousins: Noble White (wife Patience) and Adam Lewis; and numerous great aunts and great uncles.
Nathan graduated from Family Christian Academy and entered the U.S. Marine Corps as an Infantryman in 2009. He was in the 1st Battalion, 8th Marines, Alpha Company 3rd Platoon and served two tours in Afghanistan. After his service in the Marine Corps, he became a cell tower climber in Ohio, an electrician’s apprentice in Pigeon Forge, and was most recently in his fourth year as an apprentice lineman for the City of Oak Ridge Electric Company.
