Nick was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. He loved life and enjoyed time
spent with family and friends at the lake. He liked taking car rides, going to movies, community
events, shopping, and concerts in the park and even having his own book, “Nick’s Boat,” by J
Hendricks. Nick was a thrill-seeker at heart and was up for any fun adventure!
Nick reminds us all to make the most of life but most importantly to just have fun! He is a
reminder to us all of the importance of family, friends, and inclusivity.
Nick will be forever missed by those who loved him, those whose lives he touched, and those
who experienced his pure joy in living. None of us would be who we are today without Nick’s
influence. Nick taught us to really live life to its fullest!
Nick’s team included his friends, Nikki, Ryan and Tyler, Bucky, Jay, Bryan, Terry and the many
beautiful caregivers, teachers, medical professionals, and many other friends, who have all
given so much to our family. We thank them every day for their dedication. Nick’s life was filled
with celebrations, challenges, and the support of many people in the community. We have all
learned so much from Nick about what is important in life. We offer grateful thanks to all of you
who have loved him and helped us on his journey.
Nick’s greatest gift was finding joy in everything. He reminds us always to find the balance, if
you must do a hard thing, remember to take the time to find some fun! Nick’s motto was,
“Always take the boat rides of life!” Nick enjoyed a good joke, and he was always waiting for
the opportunity to jump into the conversation with a comment. He was a great listener, and we
know he travels to Heaven with the secrets of all of us safely in his trust! The best memory of
Nick will forever be his joy in racing around the lake in his boat with hair flying; the faster, the
better! He amazed us time and again with his courage, strength, and determination.
May the angels carry him to Paradise.
“May the road rise to meet you, and the wind always be at your back. May the sunshine
warm on your face and the rains fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may
God hold you gently in the palm of his hand.”
