Nathan Patrick Rumage

Nathan Patrick Rumage, 18, of Owensboro passed away peacefully Thursday, August 3, surrounded by the fiercely loving trio of women who raised him and now must bury him, his mother, Karen, and sisters, Hannah and Emily. Their devotion was evident to any visitor who stepped into Nathan’s room. They covered up the walls of his room with pictures much as they covered Nathan up with unwavering love. Nathan’s favorite cat, Romeo, was his furry advisor who oversaw all interactions.

From his bed, Nathan connected to the world through his trusty iPad. He also enjoyed connecting with friends and family while building Lego sets and subsequent strong bonds of affection. Nathan exerted effort to extract the fullest from his confining limitations. As those limitations expanded, the circle of people touched by his radiant smile also grew. Nathan fought and although he sadly lost the battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, he won the war with his spirit.

Nathan was proceeded in death by his father, Eric Rumage in 2019. Those left to cherish his memory include his mother, Karen Rumage; older sisters, Hannah and Emily Rumage; his honorary sister, Mikayla Ranburger; best friend, David Ward; grandparents, Gloria and Dennis Rumage and Bonnie and Ralph Greenawalt; his cherished fur baby, Romeo; also, many other family members, friends, teachers, and caregivers. He was loved by everyone who was touched by his smile.

The funeral will be 10:00 am Tuesday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Visitation will be on Monday from 4:00 until 8:00 pm and Tuesday from 9:00 am until the time of the service. Burial will be in Owensboro Memorial Gardens.
