Nick was quiet, loving, very creative, smart, and always there for his family and friends. He was a gentle, resilient soul with a big heart - going the extra mile, always ready with a warm, strong hug whenever needed.
Nick dearly loved a wide variety of music. He played the bass guitar, eventually learned to play the drums and ultimately wrote his own songs. He relaxed by watching movies/videos and hockey games, playing video games, hanging out with his close friends and family, gardening, grilling /cooking and being outdoors … even if it was just enjoying a camp fire at night in the pit he built near his garden. He was a good marksman and enjoyed target shooting. He especially liked to fish. He had a unique sense of humor and used it to help others feel comfortable, evoking laughter and smiles. He was a blessing to many lives – truly a gift to those who knew him well. He will be dearly missed.
