Nick Rutan '01

Nicholas K. Rutan entered the Chapter Eternal on August 31, 2013 after a very brave three-month battle. He was 34 years old.

Nick was a native of Ann Arbor, Michigan and attended Burns Park, Tappan Middle School and then Pioneer High School. He then attended Denison University, Class of 2001, and was initiated into the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Nick was an accomplished athlete, ultimately rising to the ranks of golf professional... in addition to becoming a successful Real Estate broker.

He was greatly admirerd by those who knew him and many tributes are written noting what a positive influence Nick had on the lives of those who knew him.

Nick was “drop dead handsome”, charismatic, hard working and charming. His credo was to never give up and he fought hard to the end. But the best news is he has been reborn and is now present with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

He is survived by his mother and father, by his twin brother Chris and wife Jen, from near Tampa, and his younger brother, Joshua and his wife Catherine Marie from Ann Arbor.

Memorial contributions may be made to Knox Presbyterian Church, 2065 S. Wagner Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48103 in memory of Nick.

All honor to his name.
