IDAHO FALLS — A man who was surprised with tickets to a New York Giants game passed away Feb. 9.

Nathan Woolf, 37, of Idaho Falls, was suffering from a stage 4 brain tumor called astrocytoma.

His wife, May-An Woolf, said while his body was at his worst, he was still keeping a positive attitude. She said during his last few weeks he had trouble walking and even experienced total vision loss.

“He’s been really amazing, even a week before he died. He was really, really good, he always smiled. He was so happy. He was happy to spend his time with us,” May-An said.

She said if she had the choice to care for him again, she would.

“I would do it all over again if I had to to take care of him. He was amazing, and I’m so glad that he let me take care of him until the end,” May-An said.

Before Nathan’s passing he was surprised by local businesses with tickets to a New York Giants vs Pittsburg Steelers game. The Giants were his favorite team. His family was also gifted with a check during the holiday season from a Secret Santa.

“I’m so thankful for everybody,” she said.

May-An extends her gratitude to all of her friends, family, and community who have supported her family through this difficult time.
