I am sad to learn of Nick´s passing. We worked together at my father´s store ,Crews Auto Parts on South Tacoma Way along with his father. Unfortunately,I had not seen Nick since his mother´s funeral in 2015. I remember riding in his 62 Ford while listening to Gary Lewis and the Playboys delivering auto parts while he wore his Lincoln letterman's jacket for swimming.Those were great times.I am sorry I will not be able to attend Nick's service. He will be missed.
