**From Nick's Family-
Nick was truly one of a kind. the perfect combination of fearless and selfless and fiercely protective of those he loved. This included first, his wife Liz, of 44 years. His three daughters he would do anything for and finally, his seven grandbabies. For his family, Nick would stop at nothing to make sure they were taken care of. Nick also had several passions in life including bourbon, cigars, and surprising his friends and family with Halloween masks. But most of all, Nick loved riding his bikes, Lulu and Lucille with his partner Liz.
Nick, you will be loved always,
Kiddo, Scooter and Shorty
