A Celebration of Life will be held at the Alliance Church (4404 47 Ave) in Sylvan Lake. Luncheon to follow.


Our Nicholas was born in Red Deer, AB, on May 7th,1992. The family then moved to Sylvan Lake, AB, in 1993, where Nick grew up and made many lifelong friends. Nick was very excited to become a big brother to Erika, in 1999, followed by Braeden in 2002. Nick inherited his love of music from his Mom and Dad. Throughout his life, his passion for music continued to grow. In fact, Nick cried, at the age of 7, upon learning his favorite band KISS had split up. At age 16, he was thrilled to see them in concert. Nick had a deep appreciation & knowledge of nice cars.

Throughout Nick’s journey into adulthood, he really connected with nature. Nick loved camping, hiking & fishing. Nick was an incredibly thoughtful young man, and this was felt by his family, and many others that he encountered. He was very empathetic, caring, and loving. Those who were blessed to know him, knew this. He is incredibly missed and will live on in the hearts and memories of times spent together. The most important thing to Nicholas is family.

Nicholas is survived by his Mom and Dad, Terra and Terry, His sister, Erika, and his brother Braeden, as well as a very large, loving & extended family.

Rocky and Sylvan Lake Funeral Homes, Your Golden Rule Funeral Homes, entrusted with the arrangements. 403-887-2151

Me and Nick had the privilege of meeting last summer at the Calgary dream center I was in program and graduated and he was just in the residence staying there as I graduated I moved on in my recovery started a business and got on my own two feet again to take care of my wife and children Nick respected that and me and him continued a relationship moving forward as he was working up north and always calling me for advice and always asking me to help him out wherever I could with words of wisdom in his new relationship with his girlfriend in Calgary things seem to be getting pretty heated with them and he was ready to take the next step was the last time we had talked I was supposed to meet with him at the end of August again and visit.
