KINGSTON – Nathan Pasholk loved his Harley Davidson as much he loved football.
Pasholk, a Kingston native, cherished the Green Bay Packers so much, he went to extreme measures to support his team. He once traveled to Tunica, Mississippi, to play golf with quarterback Brett Favre.
He chased the team and made frequent visits to Green Bay, but last year he hit the jackpot, landing the one thing most Packers fans would do anything for: season tickets.
He took full advantage of the Packers’ special perks. Last summer, he brought his nearly 1-year-old son, Presley, to Lambeau Field, where Presley prematurely celebrated his first birthday, taking his first steps as a baby on the field during a season ticket holders event.
“It was a moment any parent would remember forever,” Karen said.
Pasholk didn’t have much time to cherish the memories, though. One week later, he and his fiancée, Kathleen Brust, were returning home on his motorcycle after attending a friend’s wedding in Michigan.
Pasholk, 32, never made it home.
