Nathan Peder Lasnetski was born on February 9, 1981, in Marshall, Minnesota. He was the son of Nick and Linnea (Pederson) Lasnetski. Nathan was baptized as an infant by Rev. Passer and was later confirmed by Rev. Fair, both at Wesley United Methodist Church in Marshall, Minnesota. He grew up in Marshall and attended school, graduating with the Marshall High School class of 1999. Nathan went on to further his education at Southwest Minnesota State University.
In 2001, Nathan moved to Minneapolis to work a variety of jobs. He most recently worked at Wuxi AppTec. Nathan was interested in science, astronomy, politics, and history. He was an avid Twins fan and really enjoyed music, playing in bands on the drums, guitar, and piano. He was very eco-conscious and liked to get out kayaking when he could. Visiting family was important to him, especially visits to his grandparents. He will be dearly missed.
