Nathan Waller McCants left this earth for his heavenly home on August 15, 2019 at the age of 70. Born April 29th, 1949 in Camden, AL and raised in Jackson, AL, Nathan was one of seven siblings, and an outstanding athlete. He was quarterback, team captain, Most Valuable Player, all-conference and all-state for the Jackson Aggie football team. He was also a two-year all-conference basketball and two-year all-conference baseball player before playing both baseball and basketball in college. He cut his athletic career short to support his young family and spent the next 50 years demonstrating an extraordinary work ethic in a host of leadership roles before retiring in 2015. Nathan was an avid golfer that only improved with age. He shot his lowest score of five under par, 67, one month after his 70th birthday. Though always active, including his enjoyment of mowing acres of grass at their Jay, FL home, Nathan loved nothing more than having fun with friends and family and going on cruises with his beloved wife Paula and their friends. He and Paula also spent a lot of time at his house in Orange Beach, AL enjoying bike rides, great dining and social gatherings with local friends. Nathan was a great friend to many and had immeasurable pride and love for his children and grandchildren. Nathan positively affected a lot of people and will be greatly missed.

He was the beloved and devoted husband of Paula Carter McCants of Jay, FL., and the proud father of Nathan Stacy McCants (Allison) of Tuscaloosa, AL and Dallas McCants Howell (Rob) of Spanish Fort, AL. He leaves behind adoring grandchildren Lillie Catherine Howell and Joseph Clark Howell of Spanish Fort, AL and Nathan Harrison McCants, Josie Catherine McCants, and Charles James McCants of Tuscaloosa, AL. He is also survived by his sister Betty Ann Nichols (Roland) and brother John Roberts McCants Jr. (Janet) of Jackson, AL, and sister Dinah McCants Ellis of Daphne, AL. He is also survived by numerous nephews and nieces. In addition to his parents, Ruby Lee (Champion) and John Robert McCants Sr., he was predeceased by his sisters Roberta Jackson, Mary Middleton, and Barbara Brewer of Jackson, AL.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, August 20th at Jay First Baptist Church in Jay, FL. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. with service starting at 11:00 a.m. There will be a brief graveside immediately following at Concord Cemetery. Arrangements are with Trahan Family Funeral Home of Milton.
