Nick was a person who would give you his last dime or the shirt off his back. His heart was truly made of gold. One of the special joys in Nick's life was being with children. He loved them, and they love him back even more. Nick was an avid gamer, loved basketball, enjoyed being in the mountains, exotic sports cars were of great interest to him and he loved life to the fullest. Above everything else he loved his family the most. Nick would be the one that always initiated a family gathering, whether it was just for a BBQ or to celebrate a holiday. Go Ravens!!!! Go Celtics !!!!
Nick is now embraced by the love of God and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him!
