Nathan Allen Eubanks, 38, of Evansville, passed away Sunday, June 28, 2020, at Deaconess Midtown Hospital. He was born January 11, 1982 in Owensboro to Larry Keith Eubanks and Gina Hodges Payne. Nathan was a family man and meant the world to us. He was very talented as an artist and inventor. As a young boy he helped design the Viking mascot at College View Middle School. He ran cross country in middle school and at Apollo High School, which was one of his happiest times running with his team. He invented the hotspot portable barbecue grill and smoker, which he used to cook for his family and friends, rain or shine, with his very own special barbecue sauce.
Nathan became a hairstylist and could do well over 100 haircuts a day. He was known to give the best fade in town! He was a member of Indiana Painters Union Local 156. Nathan was baptized at Precious Blood Catholic Church, where he enjoyed attending with his grandmother and most recently attended Christian Fellowship in Evansville. He enjoyed landscaping and tending to his garden and fruit trees and target practice with his pistol on his parent’s property. Nathan liked politics, debating, and his President. He was a good singer though he was shy, he could belt out every George Strait song. Nathan adored his wife and mother who were his biggest fans. He loved his pets, Iroc and Daisy, but most of all he loved Jesus, his family and fishing.
