Nathaniel Dyson

March 7, 1923 ~ January 3, 2022 (age 98)


It is always difficult saying goodbye to someone we love and cherish. Family and friends must say goodbye to their beloved Nathaniel.  

Nathaniel Dyson was born March 7, 1923, to the parents of Murray and Elois Dyson in Kentwood, Louisiana. He was the brother of three siblings: Bernice and Clemmie (from a previous marriage) and Pearlena, all wh preceded him in death. 

Nathaniel attended the Kentwood City Schools and after the death of his father, the family moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He finished school at Burgeline High School in McComb, Mississippi where he received his diploma. Nathaniel accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. He attended church with his family until he was drafted into the US Army, at the age of 21 in 1943. He fought in WWII where he became a part of the 761st Tank Battalion, one of the most effective tan battalions of WWII. Private First Class Nathaniel Dyson was proud to serve his country, which he did until the war ended on September 1, 1945. He was discharged on February 9, 1946. 

In 1951, he met and fell in love with Elouise Harper in Junction City, Kansas. They were married on September 18, 1952. Four children were born to this marriage: Natalie, Karon, Yvette, and Eric.
