Steven L. Nath
Age 61 from Omaha.
Preceded in death by father, Louis Nath, and mother, Marise Nath. Survived by siblings: Michael (Kimberly) Nath and Carrie Nath; children: Katie (Dan) Culbertson and Samuel Nath; grandsons, Grant and Vincent Culbertson; former wife, Kelly Nath; his extended family and friends.
Steve graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with his Bachelor’s degree in 1985. He later returned to earn his MBA in 2003. Steve spent over 25 years as an accountant for various corporations before returning to UNO again in 2014, this time as a lecturer, teaching both undergraduate and MBA courses. Among his accomplishments, Steve was named 2016 MBA Professor of the Year and was a lifetime member of Beta Gamma Sigma.
Steve’s interests included Husker football, Cubs baseball, music, fishing, and golf. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren while sipping a cup of scalding hot coffee (preferably a Flat White from Starbucks). It was always clear that Steve was nearby with his booming voice (usually singing a random classic rock hit), loud laugh, and the laughter he brought to others. Teaching was his passion, and he thoroughly enjoyed educating (and entertaining) his students. Steve will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Steve had a deep love of music, and it is one of the many significant contributions to his children’s lives. Katie and Sam have created “Steve Nath’s Playlist,” which includes some of Steve’s favorite artists and songs. They hope that listening to these songs will bring peace to those that knew and loved Steve. Please see the links below to either Spotify or Apple Music.
Steve’s ashes will be taken to South Turtle Lake in Minnesota this summer to be spread by his children and extended family. This location holds a special place in the hearts of the Nath family.
A private service for invited guests will be held Thursday, January 19th, at the West Center Chapel.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America or the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
