New Philadelphia, OH



Nathan E. Carson, age 69, of New Philadelphia, died Tuesday, February 21, 2023, in Aultman Hospital at Canton following a period of declining health.

Born on April 9, 1953, in Clarksburg, West Virginia Nathan was a son of the late Gail W. Carson and Wilma Jenkins Carson Stout. 

He was a graduate of Washington Irving High School in Clarksburg and entered into the United States Airforce where he was a POW during the Vietnam War.

Upon his release from the Airforce, Nathan began a lengthy career as a truck driver where he worked as both an independent driver and for fleet providers. Those who knew Nathan were well aware of his kind, compassionate, fun-loving, and often strong-willed personality. He enjoyed music having had the ability to play both the drums and guitar. He loved to make others laugh and in his free-time enjoyed hunting, fishing, working on muscle cars and above all spending time with his family.
