Nick’s love for dogs was undeniable, his best friends included Smokey, Bandit, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Colby Jack Cheese and they all enjoyed cuddling up with him. Nick’s interests included boating, snowmobiling, golfing, traveling, hockey, baseball, and of course relaxing. He loved his Red Wings and Tigers! Nick loved to find a beautiful spot on the lake, drop an anchor, and sit on the boat with his long-time friend Jack. He was an outdoor sporting guy as long as it included some type of motorized vehicle.
Nick had some wonderful talents/hobbies from wood-working to virtually creating anything from nothing. He was always available to help anyone with anything!
