Nicholas enjoyed the company of his friends and family and took pride in his brand-new truck and boy, could the man eat. You could not leave your plate in front of him, especially chocolate cake. Nicholas's sarcastic humor and laugh were both contagious and he left a lasting impression in even the simplest encounters with everyone he knew. It is without question how much Nicholas loved his family. He was his sister's biggest supporter with every accomplishment in her life, big or small.
