Bayati, Nathan was born on February 7, 1987 and passed away on December 10, 2015. The family of Nathan was fortunate to have had 28 years of this gentle person and we will have him in our hearts forever. Nathan grew up in the city of Orange and attended Orange public schools, SCC, IVC, CSUF and UCI. He attended Trinity Presbyterian Church in N. Tustin, through high school and was later drawn to eastern religions and meditation. Nathan was a natural athlete who played water polo and tennis in high school, excelled in chemistry and biology, had a knack for diagnosing ailments, and was on the path to making healing his profession. He loved Japan, which he visited with his grandfather when he was 14, and was passionate about discussing the ills of the world relying on his strong moral compass.
Nathan, unexpectedly, leaves behind his parents, Adnan and Chris Bayati; his best friend and sister, Jennah and her fiancé Noel Espinoza; and his grandparents, Lois and Bob Johnson. He leaves his extended family of aunts and uncles and cousins in the Bayati, Johnson, Johnson/Davis and Johnson/Verrips families; friends, especially Kevin Foley with whom he has been a friend since infancy; and his beloved pets, Aki, Toki and Sheena. Nathan was a thoughtful mentor and friend to his younger cousins, Sydney and Kyle who will miss him terribly. A gathering will be held early 2016.
