CLARION, Pa.- A candlelight vigil was held in memory of Clarion University Senior Nathan Hundertmark Monday evening.
The vigil was held by Nathan’s friends and family. People gathered in front of Becker Hall and came together wearing tie-dye or anything else that Nathan would have loved.
Nathan’s father, Gary Hundertmark, spoke in front of everyone and said, “Nathan, as best as we can tell, did not understand all of the friends that he had. And if he were here to see all of this, I just wonder if the result would have been different.”
Nathan’s family wore some of his shirts to the vigil to represent his passion for tie-dye and music. Multiple copies of CD’s that included some of Nathan’s own songs were made for those who wish to cherish the memory of his creativity and love for music.
The CD album, titled “Lost Dogs,” contained artwork that was created by one of Nathan’s friends, and the inside the cover of the album displayed Nathan’s handwriting of the songs that are included in the album.
Donations were made, candles were lit and music was played as everyone united to remember the life of Nathan, and the impact that he had on everyone who knew him.
