I was so sad to hear of Nicks passing. He was my first little league football coach in Palm Beach Gardens in 1969. He was only 18 at the time and already taking a leadership role while guiding his younger brother and the team to a championship. I was reunited later in life with Nick and we shared a great professional relationship which included many lunches. Nick was kind, brilliant and very loyal. He loved his Nason Yeager family. You will be missed and remembered my friend!
