He embarked on the Titanic in Cherbourg (ticket number 17596 - Cabin C-118), following a business trip on behalf of his employers - Lamont Corliss Company.

Mr Natsch died in the Titanic disaster and his body, if recovered, was never identified. Following the catastrophe, newspapers in New York, in error, printed that Mrs Natsch and her children were survivors of the sinking. One of the children became sick with pneumonia (later being attributed to exposure in the lifeboat). This was certainly not the case.

Mrs Natsch later filed a claim against the White Star Line for the death of her husband in the amount of $150,000.00.
