Nick was someone with the biggest heart. Words can’t explain how much he cared for others, even more than himself. He loved helping anyone in need and making people laugh and smile. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, including hiking, going for drives, game nights, or simply just being with them. He also loved and was skilled at playing video games which sparked his passion for streaming. He was talented at photography and took breath taking photos. Nick was a phenomenal cook and enjoyed sharing it with others. He had a love for anime and anything part of the Japanese culture. He loved talking about, and working on his motorcycle and his cars, especially his dream car he was able to buy this past summer. He enjoyed the little things in life like sunsets, the moon, foxes, cats, and music.
