Nick grew up in Macon and then later moved to Dublin on the family land but resided in Canton, Georgia in his latter years.  Nick was an easygoing soul who made friends everywhere he went.  Nick was an avid reader and bonded with his daughter, Hannah, over The Hunger Games book series.  Nick was proud that his son Wesley was following in his aviation footsteps in Savannah.  He was honored that his oldest son Jason and family resides on the family land in Dublin, Georgia. One of his favorite dishes was the sausage bread that Jason prepared for him. He was a collector of sorts such and enjoyed hunting for unusual bottle openers and arrow heads.
