This week, the Excel team here at Microsoft received the tragic news that Excel MVP Nathan Oliver passed away unexpectedly last weekend.
Nate was a vital member of the MVP community who loved sharing his vast knowledge of Excel with customers and fellow Excel enthusiasts. We’ll always be grateful to Nate for his countless contributions to various Excel forums and his insightful feedback about how to make Excel a better product.
From the testimonials pouring in on the Microsoft MVP Facebook page, it’s clear that Nate will be remembered not only for his technical expertise, but for his wry wit, his generous nature, his passion for sports, and his love of family.
Our thoughts are with Nate’s family, friends, and colleagues as they go through this difficult time.
Rest in peace, NateO
My condolences go to his family and friends.
For those who did not know Nate personally, he was a very smart, funny, and warm guy who never hesitated to help those who asked -- and when he sensed it, to help those who didn’t ask. Nate touched countless thousands of people’s lives by sharing his knowledge and expertise in Microsoft Excel, other Microsoft and non- Microsoft applications, and his brilliant programming techniques. Nate and I last spoke a month ago, with a tip he sent me about how to improve my web site for IE8 users. Nate will be sadly missed, not just by his own family but by the global technical family of which he was so valuable a part.
Forgot to mention, some of you reading this may find yourself with Nate in some of the photos I've posted here, which you're welcome to copy and keep:
Goodbye Nate. I'll miss you.
May rest in peace.
thank you for your tribute to Nate
I am so sad that I will not see Nate or talk to him again. He was gifted in many ways. His brilliant mind and physical skills were tempered by his passion for people and being helpful. I love what everybody has written, even those who are just starting to learn who Nate was through his legacy of posts, blogs, pictures, and more. I took many pictures of Nate over the years. They are here:
Goodbye my friend and colleague. We had great times and I always learned something from you. Even though you are gone, your code lives on, thank you
To Nate's family and friends, I give my most sincere condolences
Microsoft MVP, Access
