  1. I am heart broken to hear of the passing of Nicholas. He was such a bright light in everyone’s life. I miss the many years we were teammates and wrestled together. He will truly forever be missed.

  2. Regan, Hope, Henry, Becky, Mack, Zachary and Megan,
    Nathan and I share in your grief. Never dreamed of receiving that devastating phone call Tuesday night. Just shows how fast life can change. Nick lived life to the fullest, he loved being a husband, he loved his little girl Hope so much and was looking so forward to meeting his son Henry. Nick is going to be missed by all who loved him. I’m praying for all of you that you have peace that passes all understanding. I hope you feel surrounded by much love during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy as you remember Nick. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. We are so sorry for your loss.

  3. I am sending love to you all…Becky, Mack, Regan, Hope, I pray for peace for you all. Zack and Megan too. I am so sorry.

  4. Nick,
    You were a special soul, you loved Roo in a way everyone dreams of.
    You’re missed more than you would’ve ever thought.

    I’ll miss you old friend, watch over her, and your beautiful children.

    Rest easy, we’ll see you there.

  5. To the family, I am deeply saddened by the grief you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue to look to him when “he will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.


  6. Sweetheart, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Just know you, Hope and Henry are in my thoughts. Sending all my love to you all.

  7. I will never forget Nick’s infectious smile. When he smiled, it was ear to ear as the old folks used to say. I didn’t get to spend a lot of time around Nick, but I know he was always happy. And a very sweet guy. Prayers for everyone…

  8. Nick, I miss you’re crazy self. I am so very thankful that I have had the chance to meet and know such a crazy and wonderful soul. I miss you so much and I think about you all the time. Just know I will take care of your wife and children no matter what the circumstances are. Regan, Hope, Nana, Papaw, Zach, Megan and I have been doing the best we can to keep each other going and in the best spirits. Hope’s a little firecracker and to be honest she’s been the main thing keeping all of us sane. I miss you so much. I love you little brother and I thank you for being apart of my life for the past 10 years. 💙🕊️
