Christian 18

Nathanael Ross Hickenbottom

December 18, 1983 ~ December 12, 2021 (age 37)



AGE 37 – December 18, 1983 – DECEMBER 12, 2021

Nathanael Hickenbottom passed away at his home, early Sunday morning. He is a soul that will certainly be missed by many, near and far. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer Marcy Hickenbottom of 15 years. Also, his two daughters, Sabrina 15 and Sydney 10; mother, Denise (John) Malloy of Florida; brother, Brandon (Rachel) Hickenbottom of Dover, OH; sister, Bailey (Brian) VanDyne of Columbus, OH, with two nephews, Jude and Gideon VanDyne; aunts and uncles, Katherine Corbett, Diane (Robert) McFadden, Harley Dennis Hickenbottom, and Connie (Dan) Moellendick all of Barnesville; and many cousins, who all loved him dearly.  Nathanael was preceded in death by his dad, Danny Hickenbottom in 2014.

Nathanael graduated from Belmont Technical College in 2005, with a degree in nursing, as an LPN. Shortly before graduation, he met his wife, Jenny, and soon started a family, after marrying in February 2006. Early 2007, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, which continued to worsen his health, until he fell asleep in death.

Nathanael was a lifelong resident of Barnesville and a member of the Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He was a faithful Christian man, who also had a deep need to be close with his Creator. He loved his garden, watching the birds, and growing pumpkins. He cherished his family and looked forward to finishing his workshop in the basement. He was grateful for all that his dad taught him, as a young man.

All that knew Nathanael, knew that his humor and kind nature was captivating, leaving all that knew him with a smile, a laugh, and a funny story. There was never a dull moment because Nathanael could always reference a pun, a line from a movie, or an episode of Seinfeld. His personality: laid back and didn’t sweat the small stuff, and to his family, the funniest guy alive!
