His wife of 37 years unforthunately passed away in 2006. Nick started to work at the Super 8 in Swan River as maintenance and loved to tease all the staff and make them laugh.

His love of cars deepened and he started up “Cruise Night” with some friends and they proudly displayed their vehicles at car shows and on the road!!
