Nate Estimada, also knows as “The Midknight Cowboy” from the E! reality show Men Of The Strip, has died. The official ‘MOTS’ Facebook page made the devastating announcement around 8 pm EDT. No details about what happened to Estimada or how he died have been revealed at this time.
“Management & cast of ‘Men of the Strip’ is extremely saddened at the loss of one of our own. Cast member Nate Estimada passed away on Wednesday, June 18th. We are heartbroken at the loss of our brother and friend and send our deepest condolences to his family, loved ones, friends and fans. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all at this time.”
Men Of The Strip front man, Jeff Timmons (formerly of the band 98 Degrees), tweeted his condolences on the passing of a great guy — and his dear friend:
Nate Estimada was 24-years-old. He was an athlete and an entertainer. He worked with the male revue company for over two years — and he was really great at what he did. The “Midknight Cowboy” always got the crowd going. According to his personal Facebook page, he enjoyed working out, recording comedy skits, playing guitar, and working on his Mustang.
He recently said:
“Being a founding part of what’s going to be the hottest show on the strip is really a dream! This is what I was born to do and I’m excited to give these girls a show!”
Other friends and guys from Men Of The Strip have also sent out their condolences:
