Nick has left us with so many sweet memories. As a kid, I was fascinated by his ability to play the guitar, show us fancy electronics that he'd bring back from Japan and his collection of old coins. Nick and Heddy have always made it a point to connect with and love our family -- with me and my brothers as "grandnephews" and later with my own children. Nick loved well. We pray that Christ will comfort Heddy greatly at this time of loss. Scott and Carmen Patrick
They didn't make 'em any better than Nick! One of the best guys ever I knew. He took many hours of his time with me when I was a boy helping me learn guitar picking. We sure will miss him, but right now is is right where he wanted to be and he is better off than we are--see you one if these days ol' buddy!
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my friend Nick Deskins. He and Heddy were my neighbors when they first came to Kingsport. Louise and I had the privilege of worshipping and working with Nick and Heddy at Colonial Heights Baptist Church.
My prayers go out to Heddy and family.
We were deeply saddened to hear about Nick's death. You were wonderful neighbors for 30 years and we regret that we're working in Wyoming and will not be there to personally extend our sympathy and attend Nick's funeral. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and see you as soon as we return home.
I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Deskins passing. I know the Deskins from HMG and the Surgery Center. They were such a sweet couple. I know Heddy will be lost without him. My prayers are with your family.
