Nick was a wonderful son and brother! He loved his family and it showed in the way he treated everyone. He had special relationships with his parents, his brother Alex, his aunts and uncles, his grandparents, and cousins! Everyone loved Nick for their own reasons! He was a genuine person who loved everyone! We are all heartbroken and will miss him every day! We have our memories and use them to get through the days. We use his strength to inspire us.
Nick and Daria dated for two years and they very much in love. Daria was always Nick's priority and everyone he knew, knew Daria and how important she was to him. They spoke every day even though she was away at school. He would sit by himself at lunch in school just so he could facetime with her! They truly had a special love and were both luck to have enjoyed each other for the short time they had together. A saying Nick had in his room was "Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning." So true!
Everyone who knew Nick loved him. He was a great friend who people confided in and liked to talk to. He always made time for his friends and helped them with anything he could. He was the captain of the swim team and also played water polo at Douglas. He was a great competitor, but a better sportsman! He will be remembered by everyone he knew.
Swim4Nick was a product of Nick's swim club family TS Aquatics! Nick spent more time at the pool than home most weeks. As such his second family was the swim club. As a tribute the Nick they started the #swim4nick campaign. Swim4Nick is a symbol of their love for Nick and his family! We thank them for their love and support!
