Nick was raised in Clinton and graduated from Clinton High School in 2001. He leaves his Clinton crew from high school, as well as friends he has made in the past few years in Myrtle Beach. He enjoyed his job cooking and could easily whip up an appetizer or meal. Nick loved anything related to sports, especially his beloved New England teams. The Patriots and Celtics have lost their greatest fan! Nick also enjoyed music, especially Hip Hop, and could often be found in the lab with his friend Phil busy mixing beats. He loved to laugh and enjoy time with family and friends.
