Mr. Nathan “Nate” Caldwell, the second youngest of the late Theodore Caldwell, Sr., and Mrs. Aletha C. Henderson Caldwell, was born on May 6, 1960, in Queens, New York. He received his wings on March 17, 2023, at Agape Care of South Carolina in Summerville, SC after a brief illness.
Nathan received his formal education at Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School (Class of 1979), excelling in his favorite sport, football. Upon graduation from high school, he joined the United States Army and served from 1980 to 1988. Nathan received an honorable discharge upon completion of his service. After his military service, he was employed at Koyo, AYP, Allied Air, and was a Forklift Driver for many years.
At an early age, he joined Emancipation Missionary Baptist Church located in St. Matthews, SC. He followed in the footsteps of his elder siblings, singing in the youth choir and learning the ways of the Lord.
Nathan had a heart of gold! He would share anything he had to give and would not dare to tell anyone the word “no.” He loved people, and he LOVED his family. Anyone who knew him would say that he was fun-loving, kind, humorous, and always had something to say!
Nathan was united in holy matrimony to Regina Glover Caldwell on September 16, 1981. That blessed union brought forth four children: Shanique Caldwell of Richmond, VA; Ke’Shaunda Caldwell of Columbia, SC; Dwayne Spigner of Columbia, SC; and the late Allen Elmore of St. Matthew, SC who preceded his father in death.
In addition to his three surviving children, Nathan is survived by six brothers: Retired SPC Titheben S. (Christina) Caldwell of Sinsheim, Germany; Bishop Johnny (Dorothy) Caldwell of Central Islip, NY; Moses L. Caldwell, James Caldwell, George (Clara) Caldwell, Henry (Denise) Pinckney, all of Orangeburg, SC; one sister, Evelyn (Willie) Brown of Orangeburg, SC; three sisters-in-laws, Shirley B. Caldwell of Orangeburg, SC; Brenda (Ricky) Randolph of Columbia, SC; and Ernestine Stevenson of Orangeburg, SC; brother-in-laws, Jimmy Lloyd of Columbia, SC; Don (Jackie) Warren of Camden, SC; and Edward (Renee) Glover and Koie Glover all of Columbia, SC; and a beloved cousin, Flossie Caldwell Givens of St. Matthews, SC. Three brothers: Theodore Caldwell, Jr. (Ted), David E. Caldwell, and John E. Caldwell, and one sister, Brenda Caldwell, preceded him in death.
A man with a big heart comes with an even bigger family. In addition to the above, Nathan is also survived by his father-in-law, Henry Glover, Jr.; his oldest grandchild, Zyrik Hallman, including eight additional precious grandchildren and his great-grandchild, Kaiden Gadson, as well as a host of nieces and nephews.
