A private (immediate family only) funeral service will be held on Friday, April 3rd at 11:00 a.m. at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel in Lapeer. Pastor Rik Schwab will officiate. Nathan will be laid to rest at Great Lakes National Cemetery on April 6th at 10:00 a.m. but is limited to immediate family only as well.

Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel would like to invite ALL PUBLIC that wish to pay their respects to the Denryter family to attend a motorcade tribute on Friday, April 3rd at 12:00 Noon at Lapeer High School. Motorcade attendees are invited to arrive at Lapeer High School, south entrance by the Optimist soccer fields, as early as 11:00 a.m. but before 11:45 a.m. with plans to start the tribute at noon. ALL ATTENDEES MUST REMAIN IN THEIR VEHICLES AT ALL TIMES, this will be strictly enforced. Every vehicle will be given the opportunity to pay tribute to the Denryter family. Nathan’s casket will be in attendance and closed during this tribute.

For those attending the Motorcade Tribute we encourage you to focus your attention to the far east at 12:00 noon. It has been confirmed that there will be a military flyover at this time. The aircrafts will come from the east and have been instructed to fly directly over Lapeer High School.

We realize that this plan is unconventional, but these are unfamiliar times. We feel strongly that Nathan’s life deserves the most distinguished tribute that we are able to safely give our community during these trying times.
