Nick,
I just heard the news. You were my best buddy as a kid. When I moved to California, you gave me a picture of you that I kept in my room until I moved out of my parents’ house. We hadn’t spoken in several years, but we’ll always have the bond that children have. Running around the neighborhood, playing basketball, playing wall ball, going to your brothers’ little league games at Sunset Park, going toilet papering—these are memories that were always among the memories that defined my childhood, and you were among the people that defined my childhood. Thank you for that. God be with you ‘til we meet again.

Sweet tender hearted Nicholas, always with a smile and a joke on the tip of his tongue. I think of his sense of humor and how he made people laugh. He had a gentle way about him. My heart is so saddened for the moments we all should’ve continued to have, and for all those who won’t get a chance to cross paths with him and miss the incredible opportunity to know and love Nick. You are missed.

Nick,

I’m sitting here in disbelief right now. I cannot believe you are gone. I literally just found out at this very moment. I’m in shock. In the short time that we had worked together, you were truly a bright light to each day. When I felt like I was all alone on my own island at tenaya, you assured me that I was loved and liked by everyone we worked with. You made me feel welcome and like I was part of the team. Thank you so much for your kindness. I’ll never forget that epic night that we had at our company party. I hadn’t had that much fun in so long. We laughed so hard, and we got to know each other more outside of work. I’ll cherish that forever. Thank you for being you. We are all missing you so much. Much love to you and your family. Shine bright up there. Until we meet again brother. RIP and much Love to you always.

Nick was one of the very few friends, and probably people, that actually liked my math jokes...maybe not solely because they were funny (they usually aren't), but because he was also a nice enough person to recognize the attempt at humor and go along with it. He was funniest people around, so he understood humor well. He was also so smart, constantly being the main reason we would be competitive during trivia. Thinking of him makes me miss those days from years ago -- it was always such a blast doing things with him. I included one of my favorite photos when we were both still in Las Vegas. I believe we were celebrating Thanksgiving (another joke he would surely at least smile at to make sure I don't feel like a complete idiot).
Nick brought a lot of joy into my life and many others. He will be missed dearly.

Nick was like a little brother to us all growing up. I will forever remember his infectious smile, sense of humor, and kind soul. Love and hugs to the entire Gardineer family.

Nick,

I still can't believe this. My heart aches, and my mind is blown. Having the pleasure to meet you and work side by side with you for the past four months is something I will cherish forever. You kept me sane and through stressful times and made me laugh when I needed it. We both saw things the same, and had each others back. I wish we had time to hang out, outside of work. It isn't the same here without you, the smile you brought, the personality that shined, helped everyone get through the say that much easier. May you rest in piece and forever shine down to those who love you below. Miss you man.


Jason.

Nick, I'll never forget I had just moved to Vegas and you were so kind to me when nobody else seemed to care what I was going through you were there to listen. Your kindness and big heart drew me in right away. I knew then, like I do know, you are special. I cannot begin to explain all the ways you impacted my life but I know nor what losing you means. I didn't get to say goodbye but I know I'll see you again someday and you are always in my heart. You are the best...around. All my love, Amy

I remember how you use brighten up everyone day when they were not quite awake yet or jsut having a bad day. You had many jokes that always seemed to work. I am saddened to hear this news but know that your time on this earth is through and everything you were meant to accomplish on this earth you did. I know you were a joy to many people and you will be missed by a lot. But all I can say is Well done you good and faithful servant enter into the gates of Heaven.

Dear Nick,

It was such a shock to learn of your passing this week. It doesn't feel like almost twenty years have gone by since Sea Camp, wrestling, and nights full of video games but little sleep. Thank you for sharing so much laughter, music, and kindness. May God bless you with peace as you rest from life's troubles. And may God bless your family and friends with crisp memories of good times to comfort us in our season of grief.

Much love,

Chad

Sweet Nick. Years have passed and yet you have always remained the kindest and sweetest of souls. There is not a single memory of you from elementary school and beyond where you weren’t smiling, laughing, or just being an all around kind and loving person. My heart breaks for your family and friends and for all of us- the Henderson kids who grew up together. We are all shaken over this terrible loss. You left such a mark on all of us because your impact was meaningful and extended far beyond your own reach. It’s a childhood bond that remains unbreakable . Regardless of our separate paths over the years, we will never forget each other and we will never forget you.

Thank you for leaving nothing but goodness behind- even years apart. Rest easy sweet friend.
