January 9, 1978 ~ April 1, 2022

Born in: Atlanta, GA
Resided in: Asheville, NC

Robert Nathaniel Green, Jr. “Nate” age 44, passed peacefully holding his wife’s hand on April 1, 2022 of unexpected causes in Asheville, NC.

Nate was born on January 9th, 1978 in Atlanta, GA to Brenda and Bob Green. He grew up in Avondale Estates with his brother Josh.

He moved to Asheville, NC in 1996 after graduating high school.

He became a master woodworker, working under his then father-in-law Carl Giesenschlag (at Wildwood Studios) for over a decade. He then started his own studio (N8 Studios) and a community of artists (French Broad School Studios) over the last decade of his life.

He raised three wonderful children with his first wife Rachael Giesenschlag.

He later met and married his wife, Kelly Green, with whom he was able to pursue their shared creative interests. Together, as partners in life, they established Fallout ArtSpace as a projection of their shared creative vision and desire to support local arts and artists.

Nate is survived by his wife Kelly, mother Brenda, step father Bill, brother Josh, his three amazing kids (Ethan, Olivia, and Levin), and many loving family members and friends who miss him dearly.

Family and friends are invited to attend a service at Groce Funeral Home located at 1401 Patton Ave Asheville, NC 28806 on Saturday, April 23 at 4pm, followed by a celebration of his life at Fallout ArtSpace located at 475 Fletcher Martin Rd. Alexander, NC 28701.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to Fallout ArtSpace, Nate and Kelly’s non-profit.
