Nathan Donald Brookshire (Nate) age 19 of Ozark and recently Vichy, MO passed away Tuesday, June 18, 2019. He was born October 23, 1999 and was the son of Donald E. and Cynthia Brookshire.
Nate was a rare soul in someone so young. His love of life naturally burst from his beautiful smile and sparkling eyes. Behind that façade though was a sharp mind and stubborn streak that helped him achieve every goal he ever set for himself.
He had the ability to talk to people of all ages about any subject and his parents thought that someday he would become a very powerful, influential man in whatever career field he chose. He had recently helped his family open a new business in Rolla and had many valuable marketing ideas.
As a child, sports and pets were Nate’s hobbies. Lately, time spent with his many friends was important to Nate.
Nate is survived by his parents, Don and Cynthia Brookshire; his brothers Levi and Garrett Brookshire; grandparents Kenneth Newnham and wife Donna, Nadine Newnham, and Don C. Brookshire; an extended biological family including siblings, mother and great-grandmother and many friends that claimed him as their brother. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Ruth Brookshire.
Memorial funeral services for Nate will be 5:00 P.M. Saturday, June 22, 2019 in Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark. Visitation will be 3:00 P.M. Saturday until service time in the funeral home.

Fly high now on angel’s wings, Nate!
