Heavy Hearts


It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of Brother Nathan Holder, affectionately known as Nate Black. During his time at Delta Upsilon he not only changed the lives of our brothers, but of every person he came across in the Western community.

On behalf of the Western Ontario chapter we extend our deepest sympathies to the friends and family of Nate. We would also like to thank the many members of the Western community that have shared their condolences with the members of our chapter.

It is at this time that we ask that you would respect the privacy of Nate’s friends and family as they mourn his loss.

We will share details of his funeral arrangements as they are made available.
