Nick lived life to the fullest traveling the world, trying new adventures, continuously learning and enjoying every day. But what he loved the most was sharing experiences and building memories with his family and friends. Family life was at the top of his list; he arranged for many family vacations and outings, was a caregiver for his mother and was quick to help each family member with anything they needed. He was always a mentor and friend to all. He had a quick wit and loved to laugh. People were drawn to Nick and his kind heart.
