    Default Nate Oliver

    I just learned through one of the Project Managers on the Microsoft Excel development team that longtime Mr. Excel MVP/Moderator & Microsoft Excel MVP, Nate Oliver (NateO as he was known here) has passed away.

    His Brother-In-Law, Adam Snyder made an announcement on the MVP Facebook page:

    https://www.facebook.com/MVPAwardProgram?sk=wall

    If you didn't get the chance to interact with Nate you missed out, as he was a lot of fun, and a whiz with VBA (among other things). He got a lot of siht for how young he looked, but he more than made up for it with his skills and great personality.

    I'll miss having my a$$ kicked in pool at the MVP Summits.

    If I hear any more about family plans I'll make sure to let everyone know.

    Rest in peace Nate. You'll be missed.

    Such sad and stunning news. Nate was a good personal friend, but for those that did not know him personally, he was a teacher, mentor, and warm generous man. My sincere condolences to his family, and to the global Excel & technical family of which Nate was so large and valuable a part.

    Terrible news.

    I didn't know Nate personally but in all my dealings with him here he was helpful and came across as a great guy who enjoyed a good time.
    And his knowledge of Excel was right up there. He will be missed.

    Man, this is terrible news.

    I never met Nate in person but we've had some really great interaction in ngs and forums over the years.

    Nate will be missed by a lot of people.

    RIP, Nate.

    Too sad news.
    We'll miss the witty and cheerful Nathan, his sunny hearty smile and his talent to help with the ease and grace.
    Rest in peace, Nate...
