Nick was our beautiful baby and child that blossomed into a loving, caring adult. He was a magical soul that lit up our lives. His smile radiated warmth and his jokes kept us in stitches.

His greatest pastimes included playing sports, watching sports and fishing. Nick’s happiest moments were spending time with his family and friends. He also leaves behind his beloved dogs: Lola, Charlie and Red.

If you knew Nick you knew genuine love and kindness. His goals in life were to be someone that his wife and family could look up to. Though tragedy cut his dreams short, we always looked up to him and always will. Our pain and sorrow runs deep, but sharing a life with Nick was our greatest joy and will be the base of our strength to move forward.

It was our honor to be his family. Our son loved and was loved like no other. His memory will never be forgotten and his love will always live on. It’s his time to watch over us now. We will meet again and this love will never be broken. Goodbye for now, sweet child.
