There aren’t enough words and pieces of paper to explain Nathenieal. No matter where he went, he stole the show. His charm and charisma will tell a story forever. He had an infectious soul and personality of gold. Nathenieal’s compassion and understanding often drew people to him. He knew how to make people laugh and cheer them up when they were sad. He was an amazing son, father brother and friend. He had an ear for music and an eye for beauty. Though born and raised mostly in Great Falls, Nathenieal was a wanderer full of wonder. He spent his childhood looking up to his older sibling, Shawnee Lee Lapier and Mark Anthony Lapier. He followed them wherever they went, the 3 amigos bonded with their dad Mark Lapier Sr. through boxing. Mark took Nathenieal under his wing as his own giving him the Lapier name. Thannie was the life of the party with his goofy personality and persuasive energy. He had a way of making those around him feel comfortable in their own skin. As a child and young teen roller skating was his favorite. As he would say “That was my club back in the day”. Everyone was witness to him dancing to soulja boy in the middle of the skating rink. His passion for music guided him through his struggles and helped him celebrate his successes. Throughout his life he excelled at anything he put his mind to. Writing music, boxing, and roofing with his dad and much more. He is well known for working at Stageline Pizza here in Great Falls. Nathenieal loved his food, especially pizza. While working at Stageline, he grew incredibly close to his boss and role model, Eric Ulrich, who he looed up to as a father figure and admired for his by heart. Nathenieal spent a lot of time as a child with his grandparents, John and Lori Aaron, and all of his cousins. He would say when he grows up, he wants to be just like his papa. Nana was his favorite lady, she would say Nathenieal is her “special one” and that he forever will be. McDonalds was the key to his heart; he loved his chicken nuggets. One bond that will always be unmatched in Nathenieal’s life was with his mother who was his very best friend. Nathenieal enjoyed activities and being outdoors but was most content just hanging out with his momma watching movies, he loved his tv. The relationship he had with his mother encouraged him with his own children, Chasen Murray and Harper Lapier, who were his pride and joy. He relished in the time spent with them coloring, watching movies, shredding mario, going to the park, and just being. His presence in their lives is something they will hold dear to their hearts forever. Anyone who truly knows Nathenieal knows he was one of a kind. He was like the moon in a way, lightening up the dark, being there when you need it, intricate, magical, and powerful. Nathenieal will never be forgotten and missed dearly.
