He was a great father and loving husband until his life was shortened by a terrible disease. He is loved and will be missed. Nick was a avid fisherman and loved to hunt. He was an assertive member of B.A.C.A. for several years with his wife and many B.A.C.A. brothers and sisters.
Nick was a strong, loving father who taught me how to be man that can do anything in life. He guided me along and made sure I could stand up for myself. Thanks dad for your love and guidance. Love Nicholaus.
