Nathan H. Tillage Jr., 83, of Hayes, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, died September 30, 2016.

He was born November 15, 1932 to Nathan H. Sr. and Reethia B. Tillage, who predeceased him.

Nathan retired from Colonial Williamsburg and afterwards pursued a second career in the brokerage business. He was a man of his word and could be counted on–a characteristic that all will remember him for. Nathan was an honest man and his children learned by his example to be honest, hardworking and to exhibit integrity during their life. He was an avid Yankees and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. His greatest love was for his wife and family and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. 

He is survived by his loving wife, Mary S. Tillage; daughter, Karen T. Hazelwood (Jess); son, James Albert Tillage (Donna); grandchildren, Kursten Smith (Kenneth), Amanda Conner, Jessica Hazelwood and Edward Atkins, and great-grandchildren, Aiden and Ava.

A celebration of life conducted by the Rev. Brian Burris was held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at Hogg Funeral Home, Gloucester Point. Inurnment followed in Gloucester Point Cemetery. The family received friends prior to the service on Wednesday from 10-11 at the funeral home.
