Such a great man. I remember when he came and rewired our entire house after the fire back in the 70's.

so sorry to hear of Nicks passing. I worked with Nick for over 25 years. As many of us know, Nick preferred the midnight shift for the Highway Patrol. It was nice to know that Nick would be there for you when you needed something done. You could always count on him.
RIP Nick.
