Nick was the best unfortunately I won't make the Celebration. No one made the new folks at Sandia feel more welcome. He was the leader and pitcher of Party Team 4 in the Sandia soft ball league in the early eighties, He was the guy that brought us all together after work for the greater parties of all time. I miss him!, but have the greatest memories.

Nick was always happy and carried good news along the way. I would see him several times a week at Sandia Lab as he worked near my area of work in the machine shop. It was always a pleasure to see him and share a minute or two with him. He will be missed by many but will be remembered for the good spirit he had with him along his way on his path of life here on this earth.

Nicks passing is a stark reminder that life is a precious short gift. We would all enjoy the gift of life a little more if we could somehow carry forward his love for life, kindness, and compassion. Thanks for simply being who you were, Nick.

Jay and Lynda have said so many nice things about Nick and it is hard for me to say more. Nick was my best friend. He also was my casino bus partner. He was so helpful when he and I went on a bus trip. He was my protector on those trips. He will be so missed in my life.

Each of us, are tiny bubbles of laughter. Nick was a waterfall of joy, kindness, enthusiasm, filled with wonder and was a fountain of laughter! And now he has become one with the Sea of Mirth Itself. Forever on brother, forever and ever.

Nick embodied the phrase, "A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet". His great big beautiful heart gave out and now the world is a little less bright without Nick in it. Laughter and music went hand-in-hand whenever I think of Nick. His warmth, compassion, humility, wit, and zest for life was an inspiration to all who knew him. Cherished memories abound and fill my heart with gratitude for all the wonderful times we shared. Until we meet again, farewell, my dearest friend.
