  1. Can we please make a fundraiser for his family?
    Its the ultimate way to continue facilitating a healthy relationship with our neighbors in Jackson…

  2. Rest in Peace Grandpa Nick.
    You have touched the lives of so many people, including my family for the 28+ years that we have known you.
    You will be missed.

  3. I had the pleasure of riding the morning shift with Nick in Howell first aid for 2 years. He was a fine man and someone who gave his life over to helping others. RIP, nick
