Nathan, age 5, of Evergreen, passed away at Children's Hospital in New Orleans on Friday, March 31, 2017. He was held in his mother's arms as he took his last breath. He fought a good, long fight and was a rare cancer survivor. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Peter Rusanov and his maternal great grandparents, Clarence and Naomi Rabelais Clopton.
He is survived by his mother, Ginger Rusanov of Evergreen; his siblings, Garrett and Azairea Rusanov; his maternal grandmother, Dawn Clopton Rusanov of Evergreen; his aunts, Amber Rusanov Fontenot of Ville Platte and Crystal Rusanov Touchet of New Iberia; his Godmother, Sheila Clopton Richard of Baton Rouge and the rest of his aunts, uncles, cousins, family members and friends who loved him through all of his wonderful years of life. Nathan always had a smile on his face no matter what he was going through and he brought joy to others.
A special thank you to everyone who was involved and participated in Nathan's care and support through his life-long battle.
