Nick had a great smile and a winning personality. Saw him many years ago at a BFF get together and we didn't recognize him. He had a mustache and we just were not sure it was him. He thought that was pretty funny. I know he will be missed by his family and ones who knew him so well. Prayers with family and friends.

Nick you will truly be missed. You were a great partner and I enjoyed the time we spent working at Auto Cargo Task Force. You always had a wonderful spirit, outgoing personality, and the energy of a teenager. My God bless your soul.

Uncle Nick you will be missed by so many. All of those crazy memories I have of us at Christmas. How we joked and laughed about getting kicked out of the family. LOL How much laughter you always shared. Cindy, Aunt Nita may God comfort, strengthen and carry you through the days ahead. I am sorry I can't be there today in person but will be praying for you. Uncle Nick, Go Rest High on That Mountain and TAPS to you
