I had the opportunity to get to know Nick when as attorneys, we occasionally communicated about legal issues we were each dealing with.

My wife and I then ended up buying property down the street from Nick and his wife Kathy, and we had many pleasant conversations together as neighbors. We would also often see Nick jogging or biking around town.

Nick always had a smile and a kind word to say and he will be missed.

Nick was our Camp Viking, Orleans MA, Cabin 9 counselor 1960 and 61. His passion for baseball rang true at a camp dedicated to sailing. He groomed the baseball diamond and sought to have all 100+ campers pass their 'Rookie' rating. Ours was Honor Cabin in '61. Nick drove the Jeep for our reward at the Dairy Queen. More recently Nick attended several camp reunions and contributed a remembrance of mentor Tim Wise to the Viking book edited by Jack Grant. Like many Viking alums, myself included, Nick settled on Cape Cod and took great solace in this beautiful environment.
