The Transcript obituary for Nate Krissoff covers familiar ground.

Krissoff graduated from Williams in 2003. He majored in political science and was the captain of the swim team in his senior year. He also played on the water polo team and was an accomplished whitewater kayaker.

“He was a laid-back, happy kid who really seemed to have things in good balance,” Williams swim team coach Steven Kuster said Tuesday. “I pictured him over there feeling like he was really doing what his calling was.”

Indeed.

Also, kudos to the College for providing Nate’s rank and service on its homepage link and for flying the flag at half-past for two days. These are thoughtful gestures, generously offered.
